in reply to My preferred method for chatting with other users

I voted for "Console-based PM-chat" because that's what I've been using (the plain text client that comes with my module). I had not seen of the existence of ase's mchattk, and in fact I had been thinking of writing a Tk interface. I will certainly take a look at it and maybe switch.

I must say it's very gratifying to see all those people using my module. I'm flattered :-)
