Is there a way of letting other PCs (running Windows) know when a Ubuntu PC is running? I've set one up as a kind of headless server, so would like some kind of indication that it's running or has rebooted. At the moment I'm randomly and manually pinging or VNCing in, but some kind of "desktop light" or something would be ace. No idea if there's a cross platform standard for this kinda stuff?

Managed to do this with a pinging app in Windows.
