What is ringd?

Ringd is a daemon which is intended to ring you, when somebody request it. This is done by speaker beeping or playing a sound or executing a predefined command.

To ring someone there is another program called ring, which sends an ring request to ringd of the user you want to call.

Why ring/ringd is written?

It was originally written, because mihi, my co-developer, sometimes doesn´t hear the notify beep of his irc client, so I can send him a ring request, But you can hopefully use it for other things. *g*
