I would just like to comment on the fact that, from the experience I'v had,
14.4K is not that bad. Pictures come in nice and clean (ok so a couple
seconds slower). I know that I cant recieve or send audio, so all the
boxes on my audio window are turned off. I even have TalkFM just in case
anyone decides so start using that. But my conclusion is, 14.4K is not bad
at all (just takes getting used to).
If anyone out there has questions about 14.4K, I'd be more then happy to
answer them.

Oh yeah, heres another neat idea that I recently discovered:
If your sick and tried of being a lurker (since I have a Quickcam,
I don't fall into this category)? Well, heres a cool trick for you guys.
Get the Quickcam software from someone (it should be too hard to find).
Install it on your computer and run cuseeme. CU-SeeMe will think you have
a video card but for local video all you'll get is a white screen. This
just means they wont see you, but at least you can type cool messages on
you video screen (hey...its a step up for lurkers!). Let me know if
someone tries this.....wanna get some feedback on it.
