  1. Hi there, I would like to serialize a socket object(actually it's a dictionary that contain a socket object). I have read about Pickle but, a socket object could not be picklable. Any suggesstions?
  2. Sending messages

    Hi there, I have wrriten a instant messaging server like MSN or ICQ and I've gotten a problem. In theory, when client asked for sending message to a friend through that server where should I get the friend's socket? How can I validate that socket?How can I know for sure is the specified friend socket? What happend when the friend logged out? I should support that but I can not send messages through a broken socket(I will probably get a socket timeout error). I think I know how to handle with online friends but on the other side, offline friends are problematic.
