hack ThinkPad shockmgr from Perl

[ #29890 ]

If anybody has ThinkPad with HDAPS support and ActivePerl installed, try this script.

The script goes in a loop to check if your ThinkPad laptop is moved, by opening its ShockMgr device with Perl. You need Win32API-File package to run the script (ppm install Win32API-File). That means, when you lean/move/smack your laptop, it says "MOVED!" on STDOUT. Very cool.
