If there was a protocol/utility in *nix land called whistle(1), what would it be for and how would it work?
@cdmnky that's really similar to the idea that popped up in IRC of an "announcement" style outbound alarm/monitor. It could federate and share info on "last seen" of peers and whatnot
@tomasino maybe it's like talk(1) but only in lowercase
@tomasino Like minimodem(1), but with glissando.
@tomasino yeah, let all other logged in users with running shells that you logged in.
@tomasino extra annoying would be, the above along with the system beep. lol
@tomasino or direct encrypted message to wikileaks haha
