Chat-N-Time is a simple Perl real-time chat CGI script for the Web. It lets you hold real-time conversations on a web page, complete with "/me" for emote actions, "/msg" for semi-private messaging, and "/yell" for when you're just feeling rowdy. You can log all chats to a transcript file, play a sound when someone enters, see who's online, etc.Visit publisher site: Chat-N-Time

This was exactly what I needed for my Zaurus SL-C860, which is currently acting as a mobile access point. The storage of the system is limited, and I was looking for a quick, simple chat system that allowed people to connect with a minimum of fuss, and chat with as little delay between replies as possible. Chat-N-Time has good documentation and the scripts are commented by the author, clearly showing what is going on and how to configure it. I made extensive changes to my version - to support CSS - and I haven't quite finished yet, but it's fun looking through the script, figuring out how it works. The best thing is all it needs is a web server and Perl - there's no need for SQL and no Java applets required. I would recommend Chat-N-Time to anyone wanting to set-up a small chat system on old hardware, or embedded devices.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
this is a good Application
