    Can i find out what someones I.P. address is and send them a message that will pop up on his screen. My mate has a dial up connection and is a pain in the A** to get a hold off and this could be the easiest way to get hold of him

    Why not force him to install AIM/MSN/Yahoo or one of the other million "IM" proggys out there?

    A dial up connection will have random IP (within a range) and will change each time they connect

    If buddy has a properly config'ed firewall, you won't get through even if you have his IP address, and his Messenger Service has to be enabled and started to do this as well. Xie is right, "Instant Messaging" would be a waay better chance.
