I came across this myself some time ago, when the Quickcam was
disconnected. But is there any real gain here? I am correct in saying that
"lurkers" without video send can still use the Talk module?

BTW, am I correct in saying that to use Talk off a reflector, that the
newer reflector software is required? I have found 1-1 Talk works OK, but I
have not updated my reflector to the newer version and I can't seem to get
Talk to work off the reflector.
