> 1. where is the data stored that is input into the calculations?

Each listing has a datestamp, as well as a rating (like the number of
"diggs", essentially), number of inbound links, and other such data.  All
are stored in the database in the same table.

2. where does the result from the calculations need to go?

When the calculation is performed, the algorithm needs to decide if a
certain listing is to be flagged.  So, only the listings that aren't
currently flagged will be analyzed.  Those that meet the criteria will need
to have their database entries modified (to change the flag boolean from
false to true).
