"Talk" plugin

The "Chat" menu is part of the Windows version of CU-SeeMe. The Mac uses a
seperate Plugin file that should live in the same folder as CU-SeeMe.

Look in Cornell's FTP site at:
ftp://cu-seeme.cornell.edu/pub/cu-seeme/Mac.CU-SeeMe0.83b3
In that directory is "CU-SeeMe__Talk.bin". After you decode it put it in
the same folder as CU-SeeMe and launch. You'll then get a new "Talk"
option in your menu bar. It seems to be old though since it's dated 1994
and the URL that's listed to check for more info is no longer valid.

Talk works fine as long as both ends are using ISDN, but it's performance is
spotty when one end is using a modem.
