Some perl scripts to help track stolen computers

Cron has an onwake mode. So it launches any scrip set to launch onwake.

Some perl scripts to help track stolen computers
Authored by: nostriluu on Aug 30, '06 09:28:48AM
I couldn't find anything about an on wake mode in crontab (5). Just an 'on system startup' tag.

This looks like the ticket: http://www.radiotope.com/writing/?p=71 (random article on interacting with configd events).

I can't work on this right now but perhaps someone who is almost there can finish this up so it sends an isight pic / network coordinates on startup via a script.
