Heh, this doesn't solve the problem that most desktop systems aren't
turned on at that time, because most desktop users won't read this
mail, and therefore won't install anacron.

A better solution (from my point of view, of course), would be to
change the popcon crontab's entry, so that it runs at a time when most
computers are turned on (this is difficult to guess, of course, but
maybe 15:00 ?).  After all, it's not a cpu-intensive, or other
resource-intensive task, and can run at any other moment.
