in reply to Get Out of a Dull Meeting

This is great, I have been using the email interface for Sprint up until now. Sometimes email gets caught up in the queue and is not delivered immediately, I'm interested to see if this would be faster. Plus, with some hacking, we could track message delivery as well, which you can't do with the email.

My version sends the email as soon as the page is hit/cgi is executed. I use the browser on the cellphone to hit the page, but I don't want to waste time trying to key in a message.

I suggest adding a sleep call in there so that it's not completely obvious that you paged yourself :-)

    Or set it up before hand to send the message at a specified time. Then when in your meeting, if all is well you just ignore it, otherwise get the heck out of there. No, I am not providing code because I am at work and I've been slacking off too long already. ;-)

      No need for CGI. Simply modify the parent code to run as a command-line script, and pop this in before your meeting:

      $ at 14:22 perl page_me.pl

      Change 14:22 to the time of your choice. We love the UNIX at command, we does. ;-)
