Re: [Plug] net send for Linux

ICQ?  or some other IM client?  There are many.  I think I saw something
on either freshmeat or linuxapps that allowed you to be a net send client
to a windows network...poped up a dialog box or somthing...

smbclient already has the ability for you to send messages to others...
have fun with cron every 5 minutes or so:

  /usr/bin/smbclient -M < /usr/games/fortune

get the client and you should be good go to...
