    Hello.
    I think some sneaky begger has been using my business computer. Does anyone know if I can find details on my G5 about what programmes and when they were used? I know how to check the recent items, however no times are listed.


    thanks....

    You could turn on the accounting facility to do that. For Tiger, first you need to set it up. At the terminal:

    sudo mkdir /var/account
    sudo touch /var/account/acct

    To start logging what programs are run, the command is

    sudo accton /var/account/acct

    To stop logging:

    sudo accton

    To see what has accumulated in the log, you can use the lastcomm command. Entries are added to the log when programs quit. Carbon apps may only be logged as "LaunchCFMA".

    The above won't really tell you what someone did, but it will let you know what was launched.

    Why not just set up a password to login or on the screen saver?
