Yea, I know...we PC users are suffering from Mac programmers lack of programming
skill on PC's. Who would have thought it would take so long for these
negligable and
virtually unusable upgrades to come out. Maybe these programmers are just
students trying to make it through, or maybe they are just that bad. Or,
maybe the PC
just isn't important to them. Any way you look at it, a PC cuseeme program
will be
available soon that is not written by the Cornell people. I have myself
already looked
into development. A Visual C++, or Visual Basic program with a simple DLL
could do more than what the Cornell Guy's have done.

Am I pro PC? Nope, not at all. I'm just a very good programmer that knows how
simple the cuseeme program would be to create for the PC. Knowledge is power -
in computer terms anyway. I just can't believe it's been almost a year and
all we PC
users have is a half baked cuseeme viewer.

Ok, off my soap box...
