Hi there

Just came across the following post on slashdot about a stolen laptop
and how it was rescued:
  http://tech.slashdot.org/story/11/05/14/1550217/OReilly-Authors-Laptop-Rescued-By-Twitter-Posse-and-Prey

The article mentions the "Prey" project, an open-source anti-theft
software (licensed under GPL3; runs on Linux/Mac/Windows/Android):
  http://preyproject.com/

Has anybody used Prey before or any other "laptop-tracking" software?

Cheers, Peter
