I've posted a new version to address closing the first file handle and  
avoiding the error if the lastupdate file isn't there.
I'll work up a new version when I have more time that will accept  
arguments for username and password as well as where to put the temp  
files so you could run like this:
./facebookOSD.pl -u name -p password -d /home/myhome

I'm also considering a twitter version (or both) which would mean  
another argument and code fork so I might as well get the base stuff  
in there now.
