online game thingy
i want to make a simple chat program. basically just
type, press enter, and then have it show up to everyone on their screen. Its mostly for me to learn how to do online stuff. Anyone know where a tutorial is for this or have some simple code?

There have been a few people writing small messenger programs and IRC bots etc.
If you do a quick search of the forum (for 'chat') you're bound to pull some intersting things. For example, here's a good one by Xx - a very nice working example. But it is command line based, not GUI.

There are not too many tutorials on writting specific programs.
Assuming it is not web-based your application will be using something like the socket module or the twisted framework.
There have been a number of threads in this forum for chat or IM - the search facility should help.
