hi

I just created a shell script that 
wakes up once a minute, looks at the 
alert log and if it's changed size
[using wc] tails me the appropriate
number of lines into mail, and then
resets the script variable.  

everythings internal so it just runs
sorta like a daemon.

seems to work pretty well.
