SPUG: Perl alert system which will call me

	I'm looking at writing a Perl script that will monitor a machine from a
remote location and perform an alert when it detects a problem.
Unfortunately there's no grantee that I'll be checking my email at the time
when something may go down, so I would like the machine to give me a call
and let me know that something is wrong.  I see that there's a module for
controlling voice modems (Modem::Vgetty), witch makes me thing that perhaps
someone has already written something like this?  Thought I would ask y'all
before getting started, as I can't find anything on SourceForge or Google,
and y'all seem to know just about everything. :)
