OK, so I did it on my lunch break.

You can enter a message here

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/entermsg.cgi

If you want to bookmark a page with your callsign already entered, do  
this

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/entermsg.cgi?fromcall=K4HG-8

if there is someone you always talk with, you can bookmark both calls

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/entermsg.cgi?fromcall=K4HG-8&tocall=K4HG-7

After you send a message you will get sent to the msg page, for example

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/msg.cgi?call=K4HG-8

Note that each message has a link now. If the message is to the  
callsign on the page, the option is reply. if it is from the page  
callsign the link is to send another message. Clicking takes you to  
entermsg.cgi with the fields populated.

I've wanted to do this for some time, glad I'm able now. Enjoy.

Steve
