A lot of people use some of the IRC channels dedicated to CU-SeeMe to meet,
get to know each other, and share private reflectors. This is not as hard
as you might think. There are at least five CU-seeMe related IRC channels
on Undernet besides mine. Some of the others are sexually oriented, and
some not. Mine is not. We try to help people get familiar with the
software, and try and work out their assorted problems.

>Where can you get a list of running reflectors?

I just added John Becker's latest reflector lists to the REFLECTOR section
of my web page (address below)
