    Ok, so in case I died, I would like some people to get some or all of my passwords. Is there any program which behaves similarly like this? (and no, I don't feel like doing a will DUH):

    -Every so often, you have to make an "I'm alive" check.
    -If you don't do it, you will be notified in different ways (e-mail, sms, whatever).
    -If you still don't, the program would trigger a mechanism to send the previously written e-mail/information to the previously determined e-mail directions.

    Well?

    Cheers,

    Mak

    I already thought about death too, but in the virtual-world way :
    if I die, how would my net-friend would know it, my parents don't even know how to use a computer, they don't know who I'm friend with etc.
    most friends don't have my parent's phone number.
    Some website I'm working for requires payment for domain-name renewing, for other people maintenance etc.
    So a mechanism to alert other people should help (and explains what should be done).

    But a software, I don't know. it can be created by anyone, just a few scripting on a server.
    but if you really forgot to login-to-say-Hi!, your death will be announce prematurely [​IMG]

    but, the web servers sometimes have date errors, (like back to january 1970), that's not very reliable, but better than nothing.



    edit :
    not that I will use any of these automatic mail sending etc.
    I'm more for talking with someone and explaining all the needed stuff while being alive.

    You would think an e-mail saying that this person is dead is spam.
    It would be deleted in seconds.

    It really sounds like you're saying "Hi, I'm gonna off myself and I want people to know!" Just have someone find you and odds are people will find out on the web. Or leave it in your will.

    I know you said you didn't want to do a will, but that is exactly what you need. A will allows you to distribute keys, passwords, codes, and the like.

    Just curious, why wouldn't you want to do a will? Then you can take care of everything in one step.

    @Sefi: Because all I want to do is giving two or three words to a person, and a will would be too much hassle.
    @Raki: I was thinking more of something along the lines of every 3 months or so.
    @Guild McCommunist: wow, that's twisted.
    @deanxxczx: not if you have actually died, and the person knows.

    I'm going to misuse this. After I die, I'm going to have it send out an email convincing my relatives that I'm not really dead. It was all a government cover-up.

    or maybe I'll pretend I'm writing emails from the afterlife.

    There should be a program that will delete all the porn off your hard drive the moment you die [​IMG]

    Hmmm, you raise a good point.

    Then the program should have a delay of about an hour or so. You can't be dead for an hour and then be revived--even if doctors succeeded in reviving you after being dead for that long, you'd be brain-dead.

    Problem solved!
