I am a new RUBY programmer. so far I managed to write a 'listener' for
my quote stream, maintain a quote database and fire off email messengers
as alerts when certain condition occur. This all happened in the last 2
weeks!

I would like to add a possibility to send these alerts to my cellphone.
I manage to send them straight forward as an email. Which is good enough
for me (for now).

But I would like my program select the destination of the email
automatically based on the fact if I am behind my computer or not.

If behind_computer
   -- send email to desktop
else
   -- send email to cellphone
end

One of the thoughts I have is to use the mouse movement to determine if
I am around. Like if the mouse has not been moved for 5 minutes - Then I
am not around.

q's
= Does anyone has a better suggestion
= Does anyone know how I can figure out if the mouse has been moved
within the last 5 min



As always thank you!!
Ernst
