I have a computer at home which I can't access from work. I'd like to be able to view results from work that my home computer produces. The best idea I've come up with is an automated script running on my home computer that emails myself the results (from a text file or stderr/out) when complete.
I'm decent with bash (I have a linux machine) and java, so an answer using either or both of those would be ideal, but if there's something easier that's fine too.
I typically use gmail, but also have yahoo mail.
My question is this: what would be the basic steps in solving this problem? I can do the nitty gritty stuff, but can't really get the big picture of how something like this would work.
