Ytalk

http://www.impul.se/ytalk/
'Ytalk' is a multi-user talk program that works like the UNIX talk program but allows for multiple connections and shell sessions inside the talk window. It is compatible with older UNIX talk clients and daemons. You can save any side of the current conversion and define aliases for addresses or hostnames. YTalk connects to the talk daemon on each user's host and determines if that user has left an invitation for you to call. If not, YTalk leaves an invitation for him and tells his talk daemon to send an announcement to his screen. There is no dedicated YTalk daemon. If you specified more than one user on the YTalk command line, YTalk processes and adds each user to the conversation as they respond to your invitation; the screen subdivides into smaller and smaller windows, one per user. As each new user is added, YTalk sends information about that user to all other connected users so that their screens also subdivide and incorporate the new user. The connection terminates when a user hits control-C or selects quit off the main menu.
