Hi All,

I also found Adobe connect to be very effective - it handles lag,
disconnects and low bandwidth issues with ease - makes it overall a much
better experience. I know they've listed the "Virtual Meeting Room" under
"High Bandwidth" - but in use it consumes roughly 17-20kbps - and ping does
not affect/matter too much.

I encourage everyone to join on today, even if its only for a bit.

The link is at http://durban47.icann.org/node/39561 - see you there!
