Checking frined update in the background

Hey folks,

Playing with a goofy LiveJournal client type application in Perl and am trying to decide the best way for dealing with checking for new friends posts in the background while maintaining real time input checking. Can anyone point me towards the best way to handle this?

Originally I tried alarms, but that doesn't seem to work well with Perl objects. I'm guessing I'm going to need to go to a thread oriented approach.
