I just got my CuSeeMe system up and running after a couple weeks of lurking and
reading CuSeeME email traffic. Using info gained, I was pleasantly surprised to
encounter no problems getting up and running (Quadra 630, System 7.5, 14.4
modem, QuickCam out of printer port with AppleShare disabled).

Needless to say I was very excited about exploring my new "toy" as a medium for
family/friend communication and as part of distance graduate education/research
collaboration project I am exploring as part of my job.

I was very disappointed the first night of surfing the reflector sites with
what I saw - needless to say I had hoped to introduce my wife and kids to the
marvels of internet technology but realize that there are other forces that
have seen the promise of long distance near-autonomous video transmission.

Bottomline - I suspect that some of the reflector sites have:
1. shut down temporarily to discourage pornographic/gay conferencing on their
reflectors after hours.
2. gone private user only as a last resort.
