Checks on the status of shipped packages

CheckUPS checks United Parcel Service's Web site (via crontab) for the status of a shipped package. If a package status changes, CheckUPS notifies any email addresses the user supplies (email, ICQ, pager, phone, etc). It logs all status check attempts, results, and the last notice sent out.
