Some weeks ago I wrote a script for the machine that runs http://ug.dyndns.org/. I had become weary of logging in to the machine and manually checking to see if it needed updates every so often so I wrote a script which would check to see if updates are needed. If updates are needed the script should send me an email telling me which updates the machine needs. Well, today the script sent me an email for the first time so I know now that it works appropriately. I decided, since it works, to touch it up and make it a generic script for use on other machines. It is now available for download on my code page. If you decide to use it don't forget to change the email address; it wouldn't be of much use if you do forget.
