    Make sure you default your auto-uploaded pics to “private.” I’d hate to have some of my “gotta check my email before crashing out” moments immortalized publicly.

    Maybe he didn’t see the security cam photos.. one of the people in them looks a lot like him. I think he’s goin’ down!!!

    Got it from ‘a friend of a friend,’ eh?

    I can only assume that law enforcement in the area will be talking to some folks with great interest. :o)

    I hope BB will continue tracking this (and also that the police in BC realize that the world is watching).

    I’ll tell you what I’d download – a program that automatically took a picture when I logged in/switched on & sent it to my Flickr account.

    Alas, a project for someone with better tech skills than me …

    For Tub, this is close:

    I dunno if Flickr has a command line interface. Sadly, its uploader program isn’t AppleScriptable.

    Is it just me or does this guy look like a hung-over Henry Rollins?

    I took a quick look. You can upload photos to Flickr via email. So you could probably combine iAlertU with some AppleScript that kicks off the capture as email to Flickr.

    He kind of looks like the father from “The Wonder Years”.
