We are currently using cgi irc as a secure irc chat channel for support services within our intranet.
We have about 200 users on our lan using it.
It works perfectly, although the problem is people forget to look at there internet explorer window when someone has anwered there question.
We found out that we can trigger sounds, but not all the pc's have speakers or even worse they don't hear the sound.
Since I suck at programming, is someone willing to help me with something to get users to notice a new event?
Instead of playing a sound when a event is triggered, can I toggle a window flash, window title scroll, or anything else? Just so they notice in there taskbar? Pop up = too annoying.
Another more advanced thing is that we would like to script our Active Directory login to be copied into a auto login script for cgi irc and a register with nickserv.
To start out with, is it possible to make a script to open the browser, go to the url and login with the user information from the current logged in user? It's on a intranet/network, with about 200 users. Making 200 login scripts is going to be allot of work..
For now, most important is the event trigger since people sometimes forget to see if there is a new reply/question which is really annoying.
