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?
