Send messages between 2 Ubuntu PCs (Net Send Style)

I'm looking for a way of using something like notify-send over my local network. I know I can use Netstat for network chat but is there someway to use the DBus type messages that Gnome pops up over a network?

I have 3 computers running at all times in my network working on things, I would like for my scripts to be able to notify me when done on my main work PC.

EDIT: Ok the link below is fine, and the script was working that the user posted:

nc -l $port | while read msg; do notify-send Alert "$msg"; done

But for some reason it won't stay open, it runs for the first message then turns off the script. I need the script to stay open all the time until I close it. What can I do to fix this?
