[R] Auto-save possible in R?

Hello fellow R'ers, I have a simple calculation with a very large data set being generated (34.9 million values) on a somewhat unreliable XP box that will likely take ~ 74hrs. I wanted to know if there is a way to have my script automatically "save.image()" throughout the calculation in case of a crash. This could be on the basis of output generated or time elapsed. I checked the archive, and only got a hint of it from: https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/1997-May/001611.html  

Any quick suggestions would be greatly appreciated,  

John Morrow
