    Something a little different but if you are logged into a linux box with someone else at the same time in a command line you can type wall
    and a commmand

    wall Hi how are you

    broadcast
    Hi how are you

    It is limited though there has to be at least two poeple logged in and both people would have to be logged into a term.

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
