But how? xD
By putting in some effort.

program flow:
1 - click mouse several time (don't forget to count)
2 - open notepad
3 - write "click mouse x times" (replace x with number of actual mouse clicks made)
4 - insert floppy disk
5 - save document to floppy
6 - close notepad
7 - remove floppydisk
8 - put floppydisk in package
9 - walk to post office, and send to friend
10 - friend receives floppy
11 - friend insert floppy disk
12 - friend opens notepad
13 - friend opens document and reads the number of clicks

That seems to qualify the description ?  :)

edit:
Have a look at zero-mq (Thanks to DJ.). it has ready to go examples in the guide.

@lainz:
ROFL

I forgot all about those lainz... indeed sometimes a nightmare. Seems to happen more with true brands for me , as i experienced far less issues with noname and white label. Sometimes a pen-drive give me that exact same nostalgic experience these days  :'(

Ah well, we can always fall back to pidgeon postal service  :D

Use a communications library, like Indy, ICS, Synpase, etc.  Or write you own communications code using platform socket APIs directly.
