Thanks for the information. I'll look into it. I just need the website
visitor to be able to message a random online user. I suppose they don't
really need to be in each other's roster. Another way that I was
thinking of accomplishing this is using mod_xmlrpc, and then using a php
or perl script on the server to pick one online user on random and then
make it message a random online user. Is this a better route to take?
