[RC5] Ensuring the client is running...

First, thanks for the sendmail idea - that's going to be the best bet 
for the linux boxen, although I've started investigating BigBrother for 
those. BB seems to work for the Win2K boxen as well. It's my 
dearly beloved wife's Win98SE box that is the problem. There 
doesn't seem to be a BB client for that OS.

As to the perproxy - I do run one, and that's my best indicator that 
something has gone wrong so far.

I did say "for the sake of discussion". The 
machines are physically located at different 
places around the house, and I have access to 
all of them, but I was looking for an early 
warning system, rather than waiting for "12 
hours" in the last seen column of the perproxy 
stats (I use Kevin Pesce/Stanley Appel's  
PerProxyStats to monitor the perproxy).

Thanks for the advice,
