Pretty sure that can be done with Pidgin, a cross platform IM client that supports several major chat protocols. I've never tried it before, but I think you just add their phone number to your buddy list (in the format of 15085551234) and start txting. http://www.pidgin.im/

But I'm not sure you're going to find a free service that addresses your "always on" problem unless one of the big companies like Google or Facebook start providing this service.

I should clarify I do not want it to be "always on" i want to be able to turn it on and off, it gets REAL annoying when they start popping up while your working, I know i can set it to private but still i just want to turn it off, less stuff runnin when i dont need it to be. Ill check out pidgin btw, thank you. It looks pretty simply just have to set it up n get the right plugins..

This is South side Chicago this morning - hazards of building in an area with poorly consolidated sediment from a nearby lake. Add lots of rain and eventually you have this...

West Texas fire/explosion

Must have been the biggest sight West, Texas has seen in decades as I have seen probably 6 other videos like this of a group of people hanging out in a truck taking phone video of the fire. Kid on this video sounded just like my 3 year old after she went to go see the fireworks with us on 4th of July the first time.

What s the deal with the model? Shouldn't it be a fat, balding, computer geek walking around with it?

:lol:

Up in my parents' town today after all the rain we've seen in Chicago. Did they think the sign was necessary? :rolleyes:

Unfortunately we live in a world where that sign is necessary. Common sense is not very common anymore.
