    There's a few story's of people using the tracking software, but yet the federales won't do anything about it
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Pondlife,

    I run Check Point Full Disc encryption - EAL 4 approved full disc encryption with AES 256. no notable performance degradation or time machine backups. Provides a nice fuzzy feeling that data is safe when Mac book is in transit.

    Regards

    Simon.

    Little update (not that anyone cares )

    Seems most of what hidden does can be done manually for free using the following;
    Code:
    MYIP=`curl -s 'http://checkip.dyndns.org' | sed 's/.*Current IP Address: \([0-9\.\.]*\).*/\1/g'`
    echo $MYIP
    to get your public IP add

    download a little app called imagesnap to take a camera shot using the command line

    and finally screencapture -S for a full screenshot.

    Now I need to script it for guest logins and whack all the outputs into a dropbox directory

    If it's a desk top I'm told this works quite well.

    Done

    create a plist file to run this script from start up using lingon.
    if it's not you sat in front of the screen it takes a piccy, a screenshot and if connected to tinternet, your IP, then ftps to a server. it then checks if dropbox is running and if not, starts it.

    It mutes the volume when screen grabbing so you can't here the click - although the green light does come on briefly.

    Happy if someone who knows what they are doing picks holes in it as this is more n exercise in technical than anything else. For some reason Dropbox doesn't seem to sync when started this way.

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    myuser="pondy"
    mydir=/Users/$myuser/Dropbox/stolen
    myarc=/Users/$myuser/Documents/archive
    mydate=$(date +"%d-%b-%y-%H-%M")
    
    #  Find out console User
    localuser=`who | grep console`
    consoleusr=${localuser%% *}
    
    if [[ -n $consoleusr ]]
     then
     echo $consoleusr-is-here
     	if [[ $consoleusr != $myuser ]]
     	 then
    	 echo "User not $myuser"
    	 
     	 # Mute, take snapshot and screengrap then put vol back
     	 curvol=`osascript -e "output volume of (get volume settings)"`
     	 osascript -e "set volume output volume 0"
      	 /Users/$myuser/Dropbox/Imagesnap/imagesnap $mydir/$mydate.img.jpg
      	 Screencapture -S $mydir/$mydate.scrn.jpg
    	 osascript -e "set volume output volume $curvol"
    	
     	 # Check for WAN connection
     	 myip=`curl -s 'http://checkip.dyndns.org' | sed 's/.*Current IP Address: \([0-9\.\.]*\).*/\1/g'`
         echo "checking IP"
      		 if [ $myip ]
       		  #  Write external IP add
       		  then echo $myip-at-$mydate-by-$consoleusr+$dropcheck >> $mydir/myip.txt
       		  echo $myip
       		  
       		  #ftp files to home
     		  su $myuser -c "/Users/$myuser/scripts/mysftp.sh $mydir"
                      mv $mydir/*.jpg $myarc/
              
       		  # Check if Dropbox is running
       		  dropcheck=`ps -A | grep Dropbox.app`
       		  grepdropcheck=`echo $dropcheck | grep MacOS` 
    
    		 # Start Dropb box if not running
        		if [[ $grepdropcheck ]]
         		 then 
         		 echo "Dropbox is running"
         		else
         		 echo "No dropbox found... Starting Dropbox..."
         		 su $myuser -c "/Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/MacOS/Dropbox &"
        		fi
       
       		else 
       		 echo "no ip"
        	 echo NoIP-at-$mydate-by+$consoleusr >> $mydir/myip.txt
      		fi
     	fi
    
    else
      echo "Noone at console"
    fi
