Mac 7500 vs CU-SeeMe

>From the "For What It's Worth" department, I've been running the standard
Mac 0.83b3 (PPC) version of CU-SeeMe on my Mac PPC 7500. It runs fine as
long as you (1) turn *off* virtual memory and (2) use either MacTCP or the
latest version of OT. (Of course, *all* software always runs better for
its developers than for its customers!)

The virtual memory problem has to do with the built-in video digitizer on
the 7500 and 8500 machines; at present, we cannot digitize when virtual
memory is turned on (the digitizer uses some memory and with virtual memory
we can't access it properly). The OT problem has to do with the earlier
versions not completely supporting some of the UDP facilities that we use.
The recent version of OT *does* support them. We hope to find a fix for
this problem.

We will be releasing a Mac version of CU-SeeMe with native OT support, but
its release date isn't yet firm.
