Confusing documentation
Authored by: RobLewis on Aug 29, '08 03:56:50PM

I'm a pretty experienced user and I found this confusing. Nowhere is it stated explicitly that you have to create the tracking files after you notice that the computer has been stolen. Also, we're told to create a "steal" account "on the computer," when "on the server" would have saved me some futzing around. Another commenter noted the permissions issues with ftp uploading. A clear, concise overview of how the whole scheme works would have been greatly appreciated; as it was, I had to painstakingly work my way through the "phone" script to figure out what was happening.
I still haven't actually seen it work, but maybe with the permissions (hopefully) fixed, it will now.
