    Everything works fine! No lag. The server will not boot.

    It would be cool if the messages were issued randomly. Possibly do?

    Yes, most things are possible. I will take a look at making the messages random.

    Taffyi think it's probably better to have timers then hooks, but i could be mistaken.

    No i ment that you could you 2ways:
    1) with hooks, as in every time Something calls à hook you look if you broadcast à message
    2) do à timer Repeat or Once that you repeat.
    I have no idea what is the less resource using.

    Thanks for the information @Reneb . Much appreciated.

    I have had this one running for approx. 24 hours on my test server now and so far I have noticed no excessive CPU or memory hit. This is good news as I used to have lots of issues with legacy and timers :)

    You could try adding \n at the end where you want the new line to start.
