Hiya Folks.

Actually, no choking here. While I slept, Windows Vista
made 185 updates automatically and restarted my computer.
OK, so I am not crazy about the auto restart but at least
it did not happen when I was working my tail to a nub on
a new project.

I need to find a way for a big bell to alert me at bedside
IF Windows wants to restart my computer. Other than taking
it to bed with me and snuggling up to it...

Any Suggestions?

From the Department of Half-baked Ideas:

Dear Eileen,

With your SMS connections (client? Friend?), why not explore the possibility of having your computer send you a text message when it reboots?

Then, set your Text Message ring tone to a loud bell and keep it on by your bedside, instead of the PC :)




I tried Google, but, with only one cuppa joe in me, I can't seem to find the right keywords. I bet Vista has something built in. Remember the S.M.A.R.T. drive technology? How similar is that - alert-wise?
