I know there are alot of you out there who can't seem to send good audio
over CU... The actuall reasons may vary, but here's something to try:

When you want to speak, freeze your video before you transmit. Leave it
paused untill you're done talking, then let off the transmit, and you
can click your video to start sending again. Anyone talking to you
(especially DC, but works very well on ref's too) must do the same, and
you will note a BIG difference in clarity, with much less choppiness.
So what if it's a frozen picture for 10 secs here and there... It's
still better than Ma Bell, and remember, we are on the cutting edge of
technology here, things aren't perfect, but every one will benifit in
the future by participating now. Problems that we have and report
(bitch and whine about) now will make for a better product in the
future. Untill then, I hope this helps some of you for the time being.
Have a good one.... "CU" around....
