Share remote screens at startup with Remote Desktop

You may find out something you don't want to know. Besides which, this IS an INVASION OF PRIVACY!!! Would you want your father to do this to you??? I'm not impressed with the editor of MACOS X HINTS for publishing this either! I've only been viewing MACOS X HINTS for a few weeks and really like it. This is the first "HINT" I really take exception to. Please remove it from your site. Thanks!

Privacy schmivacy. It's his own family. It's no different than a parent snooping through a kid's web history/cache to see what [s]he's been up to. Besides, which is worse, intra-family invasion of privacy or stifling freedom of speech by saying this hint should be removed?

Calm down, dude.

Apple Remote Desktop has a feature built right in called "Observe". It does exactly what this convoluted script mess wants to do, with no odd, complex tricks.

This isn't a bad hint, it's a non-hint.

[robg adds: Read the rest of the hint for the script, and this hint is presented in the interest of fun, not hacking -- clearly, to make this work, you already have to have direct access to the other machine to set everything up, so this isn't much of a security threat.]
