Hey, is there a free program that anyone knows of that can be used like the message to administrator in Apple remote desktop control for windows xp?
Cause when im up in my room on my pc i cant hear if my parents are calling me to come and look at the pc, and so they have to come up and see me and at this stage they are in a really foul mood.

I have a wireless front door bell between my workshop and the house. If I answer the phone and it is for my wife I just press the button, it rings a buzzer in the house and she picks up the phone. Sweet as........

We have netsend (http://www.fomine.com/net-send-gui.html) - the Mrs got pissed calling out the window all the time when I'm in the workshop - so now she just sends a message - works on Windows only.

Got it in a real estate office as well - lazy buggers, on the other side of the movable partition could just walk 4-5 steps and be where they want to be - but easier to PM geeeesss :groan: :D
