Is there a way to write the MemoryInUse into a file once a minute?

In this Debugging memory leaks question there is a neat dynamic diagram showing the MemoryInUse over time. My problem is that I run my mathematica script without the front-end (math -script mystuff.m) and it seems that Dynamic does not work.

(* make the task, fires once a minute *)
task = CreateScheduledTask[PutAppend[MemoryInUse[], "myMemory.log"], 60];

(* start the task *)

(* ... do your thingys ... *)

(* stop (or remove) the task *)
