Create a chat room in VB which allows multiple people to chat and draw pictures.

(From FreeVBCode.com) This is an excellent application for anybody who wants to learn how to manage multiple winsock connections. The code is well-commented. A good way to see how it works is to 1) Compile the application. 2) Run three instances of it, and on one of them, click Host. 3) Use the other two instances as if two people are chatting with each other.
