I'm not sure what to call this system. I've been trying to create something
along the lines of lmgtfy's live view.
It's not working badly but I'm completely stuck on one thing. It's turning

Of course this doesn't work in a multi-user environment and once the first
user has seen it, it won't come up for any of the others. How can I rework
this so that every user will see every message, but the messages won't get
repeated for a single user.
Any ideas on this would be welcomed, I've been thinking it over all day and
I can't come up with anything.
