Dear morgan,

Concerning your mail I have a few replies.

There are a lot of reflector lists going around. But as I am involved in
putting up a new reflector list I have found out that a lot of them do not
respond.
There are several possible reasons for this:
1) The reflector is down. Not all the reflectors are on line ALL the time
2) The reflector is taken off the net totally

Concerning the fps dropping:
I have the same experience. It just depends on how many people are
participating in a conference. Usually if there are only one or two senders
everything is ok. But as more people participate who are transmitting fps
drops fast.
I think it also depends wether you are on a modem or a different connection
like T1,ISDN etc.
That brings me to an idea which I will put in a different message !!!!

Best regards,
Luc
