Thanks for the info. I didn't get this via email, which I find odd. I'm
sure they have my email address some place, since I've been a beta tester
for them for both the 3.x client, 2.1 ref, and MPCS ref.

And for anyone else that plans to download this, let me warn you of a few
things that irritated me about the install:

1. I chose NOT to have the Four11 client installed, but it did it anyway.

2. I had previously set all of the CU-SeeMe sound events to NONE, and this
install put those suckers right back in there, so I got the camera shutter
clicking sound when people join the ref, etc.

3. The phonebook entries add up to almost a full megabyte, altho there are
only about 50 of them. This seems to be quite a lot of space for so little
information. Perhaps the phonebook could be done as a separate download.

4. The ActiveMovie Install program is still lying around taking up a
megabyte, too. For UPDATES, perhaps they could leave this out, since
previous installs should have taken care of installing this already.
