In response... I have seen a lot of talk about PMS... Approximately 9 months
of it... It is kind of like the PC CuSeeMe versions..... Everybody talks
about things that are already known and are being worked on.

Please give me some new info..... I subscribed here to keep up with the
CuSeeme developments.... NOT PMS cards..... Lately all I have seen is LOTS
of repeated questions about PMS and the CuSeeMe for Windows Audio
Version(When it's going to be ready questions). I sift through this list
day after day in hopes that new information is on the horizon..... I have
said nothing, until now, about this list... I have helped some and I was
helped when I first joined the list....

I'm here to learn.... not to read the same messages 65 times a day....

I did not intend for my message to be so harsh....I apologize to the
list.... and to everyone who was offended by my original post.

But I would like to see more INFO and less GARBAGE.....

Thank you for your time.
