It is done, it is located at, http://w9if.net/iweb/perlaprs/ I tried to
get it running on my computer at home to provide the service but my
knowledge of perl is weak at best. I asked for help on it but got no
response last year. I would love to have this application running for
certain reasons. Mostly because I do not always sit and watch my
computer, but if I could set the thing to email my cell phone with the
information I am looking for then I could go to the computer and see
what I want to see.
