Changed a few lines from the LiveJournal Perl update client and made it so it can send me text messages on my phone, just by faking a request to voicestream's message center. Finding SMS servers is too hard. Mad props to ethereal for helping me out, as usual. Now to write some website monitoring tools.

I use sonar to probe a swack of server ports every hour and e-mail me on my startac phone any failures. A detailed alert lets me know what port is down so I can react accordingly. I've actually got two servers in seperate locations doing this so if one drops off the network due to network stuff the other one "should" still be able to send me an email.

I tell you though, it won't take long before these scripts will be able to do whatever I would do after assesing the situation. Most of the time its just an NT box that needs a restart. I'm sure a very dumb script could be this smart.

Thx for the link to ethereal. I've never heard of it but could use a good network analyzer.

Re:

You are not your job. You are not the money in your bank account. You are not the car you drive. You are not how much money is in your wallet. You arenot your fucking khakis. You are not your server when it goes down and messages your startac phone. You are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time. ;-)
