    Network Messenger

    Anyone know of a messenger that will work on a peer-to-peer (ad-hoc) network? Remember, there is no internet connectivity, as well as no router. I just have two USB Wireless cards.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
