do i need a server?
I'm planning to create a program, it's all about using your computer to text someone ( just like the one I saw in Chikka). The problem is do I need to have a server or at least register to a server to send text messages or do I just have to connect to the internet and run my program?

yeah u need a server, coz it saves other systems to keep listening to other text sent by some other systems. Whereas, if u implement a server, it will just pass ur request to the other system and make ur task a lot easier.

But can my program still send messages without some server, it's like i'm just going to connect to the internet and then run my program

yes, u can do it even without a server, but then ur client must be made to listen for incoming messages. Use Winsock control for this purpose...
