adblock filter updates not very automatic

When I check, my filter updates are almost always 2-6 days (or more) out of date. Is there a way to specify the update frequency? Once daily would probably be sufficient.

    The length of time we update filter lists by is decided by the list itself, If you look at EasyList, for example, (link), you will see on line 6 that it expires every 4 days. AdBlock reads this and understands that it only needs to update every 4 days. This is so that EasyList's server doesn't get overloaded.
