Help me track my mother's computer usage

My mother is 90-years-old and lives alone. We worry when she doesn't pick up for the phone or we haven't heard from her for a couple of days. She is actively-opposed to any sort of regular check-ins by phone or e-mail to us, and she also does not want to use any type of monitoring service for the elderly (such as Lifeline) She does, however, use e-mail and her computer on a daily basis. Is there any software I can install that would send out e-mail alerts to us when she has (or hasn't) used her computer in x amount of hours? I would, of course, ask her permission to do this, and I am fairly sure she would be okay with it. (Don't ask me what exactly the difference is between this and Lifeline, I think it has to do with the stigma of aging that a service like Lifeline implies, something she is quite sensitive about.)

Usage tracking in digital asset management software?

I'm looking for software that will help track usage of digital assets such as photographs, as well as stories contained within Word documents. For instance, if a photograph is used in a publication, I'm looking for a way to easily document that so that others in my organization can also see a record of this. Does anyone know of any software / workflows that makes this simple and straightforward? Or even the language to describe this to help better guide my search of this software?

Seeking shared online multi-part project managing solution

I am working with several other people to seek sponsorship for a non-profit event. There is a fairly simple but lengthy series of actions that needs to be completed to track each unique sponsor. We've thought about having a binder with a printed page showing tasks for each sponsor, but it would be preferable if there was an online solution any of us can access for checking off and date-stamping completed tasks, with a place to add notes.

Track inbound links?

So, I'd like to track specific links into my site -- links I generate but aren't browser-based (eg, links in an email or RSS feed). Sites like Cool Hunting and Fark use a tracking method on their outbound links which looks like what I'm envisioning. I could write something from scratch, but is there an existing application that does it for me? [more inside]

Looking for good HR software

Applicant tracking software. Does anyone have any experience with the multitudes of hosted applicant tracking software providers out there (for posting jobs and managing resumes internally)? Currently, our company is testing out Prohire, but as the person who handles the website, I find it to less than desirable from a code standpoint and from a customer service standpoint. It is affordable at around $300 a month. Does anyone have any recommendations?
