Windows Messenger Service (or Not)

For reasons that are too boring to go into I recently needed to have a simple way of sending a message to all the users on a network.

Aha I thought, simples, just use the Windows Messenger Service that uses Mailslots. Dead easy to code, job done....


Microsoft in their infinite wisdom removed this from Vista (and presumably Win 7). Buggar. This is not just annoying, it's MS annoying...

Much googling later I've found a free (but you should donate) download for Vista that allows it to receive mailslot (net send) messages.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real money.
It gets down to choose a proper partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
