Although the chat method you cited was novel, it would be rather difficult to carry on a decent conversation using the applescripts and dialogs. You could, however, use the dialog box to say 'Open the terminal and talk to me.'


Of course, I just tried this to make sure it worked before posting and it seems that I have a problem with my terminal settings and it doesn't work. Anyway, if someone feels like explaining how to get 'talk' (an old unix chat program) it is a nice way to communicate with another logged in command line user.

    Alternatively, use AppleScript to open iChat and launch a chat session with you.

    For the truely evil, launch a video chat...
