Autoreply Start Date

Post by frank70 » 2015-09-08 10:04

I would love, to have the posibility to set when the autoreplay should start. I only can set the Expire-Date. As an administrator it would be great to set the day/hour, when to start the autoreply.

And I'd love to have the already notified addresses persistent in database and not only in memory. Once the Server restarts, everybody is notified again...

It gives Martin an idea of what is important
That's why we have StartTLS, 64 bit support (in next version) among many other things

Cheers.

I must say I had some proper head scratching moments and even went to bed one night for a complete rethink of structure of the nesting.

You may also recognise some pilfered functions included. :wink:

When I start a programming venture I usually end up rewriting everything 2 to 3 times... Primarily to make the code selfexplanatory... I hate having to comment everything.

That is just totally awesome
xxx: smack-my-bitch-up.sh - sends a text message "late at work" to his wife (apparently). Automatically picks reasons from an array of strings, randomly. Runs inside a cron-job. The job fires if there are active SSH-sessions on the server after 9pm with his login.

xxx: kumar-asshole.sh - scans the inbox for emails from "Kumar" (a DBA at our clients). Looks for keywords like "help", "trouble", "sorry" etc. If keywords are found - the script SSHes into the clients server and rolls back the staging database to the latest backup. Then sends a reply "no worries mate, be careful next time".

xxx: hangover.sh - another cron-job that is set to specific dates. Sends automated emails like "not feeling well/gonna work from home" etc. Adds a random "reason" from another predefined array of strings. Fires if there are no interactive sessions on the server at 8:45am.

xxx: (and the oscar goes to) fucking-coffee.sh - this one waits exactly 17 seconds (!), then opens an SSH session to our coffee-machine (we had no frikin idea the coffee machine is on the network, runs linux and has SSHD up and running) and sends some weird gibberish to it. Looks binary. Turns out this thing starts brewing a mid-sized half-caf latte and waits another 24 (!) seconds before pouring it into a cup. The timing is exactly how long it takes to walk to the machine from the dudes desk.

It seems not to be very difficult to realize this feature and it would be so importent for me and surely other users, perhaps for automatic holyday notification...
Hope it comes in the next releases...

And it would be wonderful, if we have the same with rules, that I can set an start- and stop date/time for the rules.
