I have access to a T-1 connection at work while my girlfriend
in another city has 28.8 access. We use the Wpine's release
of CuSeeme. I don't try to make any voice communications as
the video is killing the connection already. I have limited the
max bandwidth to 10Kbps on each end and I still cannot keep a text
based talk session alive. It dies because of little available
bandwidth.

How do other people manage a video connection over a 28.8 link while
being able to do text-based talking ?

Would it help if we tried the built-in irc like talk utility ?
Is it instantaneous ?

Any hints/tips would be appreciated.
