erm... some or most of you may have come across this pre-XP SP2 where one can send a popup message to another person using windows in the same domain/workgroup. This was disabled when SP2 came out which was good and bad.
I'm wondering if this is now available in vista. Can't seem to locate it in Services. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong place.

The Messenger Service (net send) is no longer included.
There are a few free third-party tools that serve the same purpose though.

To get around this, you can msg the console session
msg console "Time to stretch"
or
msg /SERVER:computername console "Time to stretch"
Try that

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
