    So I had the fun idea of using a cron combined with curl and twitter to allow me to better monitor my server and be sure that it did not start going nuts on me. It is a low population server so this is something that will allow me true hands off monitoring with out needing to get some third party script to manage things like the mail queue size to check for spammers and other items.

    If you could have your server automatically tweet at you regarding server issues and status what would you have it say?

    Once I get this completely running you can follow it too @serveralerts on twitter. Original idea slightly borrowed from @serverlol
