phone post spooler

For the first time since phonepost's introduction, the background spooler (which takes the recorded files and target info files and makes the LJ posts) stopped running for some reason.

We restarted the spooler and the backlog is clearing.

So far nothing's been automatically monitoring the phonepost server, but Lisa and Nick will be working on that.

Update: We know why the spooler stopped: the machine was rebooted last night, and the spooler wasn't set to start on boot. That's now fixed. Why the machine rebooted is still a mystery. We're thinking it was a loose power cable while we were working on other machines. Also going to investigate that later.
