    I'm connected to the internet through wireless with my airport card, and my step-dad is the administrator with his own ibook. We have a base station and all that. Does anyone know if there's a way to send a message to one of the other people connected through the wireless network? It would be a funny prank!

    Windows has a builtin service. Not sure about OS X.

    you could always use Apples Remote Desktop and take control of his computer (as long as you are setup as the admin on the computers, that is...)

    You could control it while he is using it... Make his moouse do things that he doesn't want it to, and all that. Plus, you could send admin messages to connected users...

    Or, you could just iChat him using a Rendezvous connection... no AIM or .Mac accts needed...
