Hello, I'm new to this listserv, and new to the world of online realtime
communication, and I could use some help. I downloaded CuSeeMe V2.0 and
installed it OK to my Pentium 60 Mhz witrh 16 megs of RAM. When I went to
run it I could access chat but no matter how many times I pushed the
"transmit" button, and saw the visual scale indicating I was speaking,
nobody (save one) answered me. I do not know if it works as a result. I do
know that one individual, whose name was highlighted with a green box around
his information when I saw the list of members in chat, was very upset with
me and cursed me out. That was the only voice I got from anywhere, and I
could not deselect his name from the list. I also get no video although once
one picture of the earth came through partially from the NASA site. What am
I doing wrong here? Can anyone help.

I will be replicating this experience for my laptop (100 MHZ Pentium) with a
video/audio capture PC card if ever I can get this program to work.

Is the pay version any better/easier or is it the "time out" feature the
only difference?

Thanks for the help.
