    Ah. Good fun. Install jabberd, the jabber daemon. Then both of you can connect to the same jabber server using gaim (there are both Windows and Linux clients). There may be a pre-compiled binary for Yoper. More information on jabber, and how open and cool it is can be found: here.

    Good luck,
