So from this Time Machine thread I've decided to try it out again. I had tried it when it first came out and never got it to work smoothly. There was always a glitch and it would stop backing up. Since a backup with a possible glitch is worthless I blew it off.
So having a 189 buck 2TB drive sitting here (since I couldn't mount it in a sled and put it in my ftp Xserve) I stuck that in the fourth bay on my Snow Leopard Nehalem and set it it off yesterday. 24 hours of backups and seems to be working smoothly. I'll give it 30 days and might start counting on it.

It's not even a script. You just open the proper plist and change the time interval. I'll post it tomorrow, since I'm at the wife's computer and she is asleep in the bedroom where my computer is. I could get the file from here, but my machine is asleep as well.
One thing to note when only editing the plist is that TM will still do additional backups, like when disks are mounted, when it wakes from sleep (if more than an hour I think is what triggers it) when you plug a laptop in to power.
TimeMachineEditor takes care of that. I don't use it, just mentioning. I just let my TM fly all willy nilly.
