Yeah I know, the pager is great and all that jazz blah blah blah.
Basically I have MSN up, and I thought it would be pretty cool to have a BYOND Messenger list. The server would be hosted by me, and all clients work as if they are connected to the "game." It's more or less a selective chat room, or selective IM system. There won't be any global chat rooms, but rather rooms that players can connect to with their friends or people they added on their list.
