Beep a User - not using write possible?
 
Is there a way to send a Beep to a logged in user ?

I know when you do a
'write someUser'
it will beep their terminal... but it will also bring up the write deal.... any way to just send the beep?

:)

hmm I use:

echo "hello world" > /dev/<tty where use is>

to send messages, I thought there was a character for the beep? you could echo that one to him :p

greetz,

ps: nice way to screw up a terminal: cat /dev/random > /dev/<tty>
