Hi again,

I was so pleased with the simplicity of this particular way of 
monitoring logins that I have implemented it on all my personal servers. 
With a bit of lateral thinking I also managed to get it to work with my 
Pushover setup, so now I get push notifications to my mobile when a user 
log in to these machines. Brilliant! :-)
