Two things...

(1), This is a working reflector
that is up and running all the time. There may or may not be anyone
connected to it though.

(2) I have noticed with the Cornell version of CUSM you may need to
complete the following steps to get a solid connection. Especially if
you are the only person connected to the reflector...

A) Connect to desired reflector.
B) Immediately disconnect. (Do not wait until you are connected)
C) Immediately reconnect to the reflector.

For some unknown reason this will get you connected.

When I was trying the White Pine version of CUSM I did not notice
this problem, but I was not running a reflector at that time. I now am
and have been able to observe both sides of the situation. I have found
that this procedure works a great deal of the time.

The 'Murphy Factor'.

The law states, "The statistical probability for a successful
presentation of a concept or idea seeking general acceptance
is inversely proportional to the number of observers observing
an experiment or project multiplied by a factor of (.5)".
