Auto-download certain URLs, hourly?

I just might be able to figure this one out with a lot of trial and error, but I'm hoping the good people here can save me a good deal of effort.
I want to be able to set up my Omega2+ so that, once an hour, it creates a directory named for the date-and-time, cd's into it, and then runs wget to download local copies of a few hundred short files. (RSS feeds, if you're curious). I /almost/ know enough scripting to be able to do this on a Linux laptop; but the Omega's limited toolset makes it just enough trickier that I'd appreciate some help sorting out the details.

@Daniel-Boese Something along the lines of should do:
#!/bin/sh while true; do datetime=$(date +%d-%m-%y--%H-%M) mkdir -p $datetime if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then cd $datetime wget http://whatever.url/some.file cd .. fi sleep 1h done
Note that it doesn't do any error-checking or anything. Add error-checking and whatnot, however it suits your needs.
