Automated database backup solution?

#1
I want to backup the database nightly but not want to sit at a computer and do it manually. Is there an automated way to do this? I do most of my work on a Mac.

What happens if your disks fail? Backing up just the database is not enough. You need to backup the entire site, including the physical files, attachments etc. A proper solution would be an rsync of your /html directory and a db backup.
