Okay, I'm on it. We have 2 +, one 0 and one absent then. I should have
something ready next week, in addition to the new alert "command"
statement. BTW, have anyone checked out the state stuff I added to
monit? it seems to work okay.(?) BBTW, Have you been able to work more
on the process stuff? Martin said he will start on the new
file/dir/device check functionality soon (didn't you Martin? :)

Ahen this is ready we should be able to make a new release. 4.0 maybe?
RedHat just jumped from 8.0 to 9.0 so it's possible :)

Good suggestion, I'll see how long it takes to implement the stuff.

Actually it is not my house, but my brothers. He bought an old house
and I'm helping him with restoring it. He has two small children, (a
five month old girl and a two year old boy), two dogs, a tired wife
and three jobs so he need all the help I can give him.

That's cool. To paraphrase Pink Floyd, "I wish I was there".
