Tried that, when I type "who", I see;

cassidy  :0           May  5 18:28
cassidy  :0           May  5 18:28
rodney   pts/1        May  5 18:33 (

How would I correctly send a message to ":0"?

the correct syntax is supposed to be;;

write cassidy tty0 hello

but the above is not a tty#, so what would it be?
