I'm looking for some kind of solution to my problem here.
Here's a scenario, assuming you have approximately 5000 users online at this very moment, all of which are merrily chatting away. Assume there's some kinda major event happening in the world (eg. Volcano errupting in Hawai or something ...merely an example here). I want to be able to pull this information from my already existing  news system of sort and display the major breaking news headlines to the chatting users in some form of popup box (if possible like the presense notification jabber already has). Question...is there a tool that has this already, does Jabber have some kind of configuration that already exists and lastly....Is this possible?

Do tell ...very interested to know.
Thanks in advance ...
Regards RM
