Building my own tracking software for my new Macbook Pro

So of course everyone by now know that I lost my little white macbook :(. So I did some research and found few softwares such as Undercover or Lojack for Laptop, or Adeona (which by the way is free but currently not working so don’t try it), and I even looked into mobileme. All these solutions seems good (except for Adeona 🙁 ) and I almost bought one of them until I found this.

This solution is pretty cool… it is a home gown method of getting your laptop to dial in. The cool thing is … it actually works!!!

I installed the applications and modified the provided scripts and boom it works… pretty cool, pretty cool…

So I am still in the testing period of the is script and I will keep you guys updated on how it works.
