chat option
« on: February 14, 2009, 10:51:48 pm »
I realize that this isn't of much importance or use for that matter, but how hard would it be to create a chat program into linuxmce? For instance I am down stairs and would like to send a quick message to someone using a different media director or orbiter upstairs.  I know it sounds super lazy, but it might be a cool little feature.

Thank you,
Jaime Dugan

You could just call the other user utilizing the asterisk functionality that is built in

Suggest you do some searches on the forums for this. It has been discussed, and someone was looking into implementing it... I think it was Thom.

Here are my notes for an Instant Messaging plugin, from an architectural perspective:
