Lost in Logout Land: Running Scripts on Login and Logout (Partially Solved but Interesting Anyway)Posted: July 16, 2008
Every time I log on to one of my various computers, I update my basic file directories. Every time I log out, I back them up to a central server, which is itself updated six times a day. The issue for me is that this all happens by hand. Every time I log on to a new computer, I need to manually run an update script. Every time I log out, I run the backup script. What I’d really like is a script that automatically synchronises each computer with the central server the moment I log on, and updates the central server again the moment I log off.
