Just for yuks, I downloaded Google Talk today. I’ve never been much into IM, but since this is from Google, maybe I’ll be able to do something interesting with it at some point. I’ve been kind of curious for a while about the possibility of using IM for various system notifications and stuff like that. Other IM clients I’ve played with haven’t had useful command-line versions (or APIs) that could be called from a script. I’m kind of curious to see what’ll happen with this one.
