I'm not saying this will or won't happen ;-) But Jason is not a White Pine

You can also use a Web browser with materials created ahead of time. Geez,
this would be a great idea to integrate into a vertically marketed CU-SeeMe
learning product, wouldn't it? Hmmmm.....

Actually, pent 100's for G.723. But that's no so bad. Proshare requires a
Pent 133, 32Mb RAM, and 70Mb hard drive space. And you say CU 3.1 is a hog....

See an upcoming Mac preview build and the released product.
