need a program that monitors employee logins, preferably freeware

I have a client who has a Windows 2000 server and a LAN consisting of a whopping 3 other computers. He would like a program that lets him know when employees have logged onto the network...preferably by email notification. He doesn't care for anything as machine-centric or intrusive as Spectorsoft, but would like a small utility that does it's small job well for a small cost. All suggestions are appreciated.

Are hackers infesting O'Hare and LAX?

This happened to me last week at O'Hare - and now, today, in LAX. I opened my laptop in the terminal and checked for wireless networks. I noticed that there was a "computer-to-computer" network called "Free Public Wifi" available. I didn't try to connect, because I know that such networks generally can't provide internet access if there's no other connection available. Does this mean there are folks trying to socially engineer gullible wireless users? What could they gain? Would Windows be more vulnerable than Macs? AND how would a curious samaritan figure out who, amongst the dozen or more folks with open laptops in the vicinity, the culprit is?

Security Camera needed

Several laptops and projectors were stolen at my workplace this weekend so I'm looking for a simple security camera that will record on my PC when it detects motion. I have looked at x10.com but that seems much too complex and it seems to only be able to record to VCR. Anyone have experience with a cheap/easy solution?
