I think that Jim and I are in the same situation when it comes to using IRC 
through high security company/government networks. I am prohibited from 
using IRC from work or dialup from the company network. I will loose my job.

I use a separate computer (non business stuff) and my private ISP/cable 
network  for IRC.
The meeting is at 12 Midnight Japan time, so this does not pose a problem, 
but this means that the meeting is head during business hours US time for Jim.

It looks as if the US participants will need a conference call  to be held 
concurrently with IRC. Peter, could you moderate such a thing? I think then 
the IRC would be relegated to a running commentary that would need to be 
looked at periodically and commented on by the Chair. Any other ideas on 
how to solve this one?

I can telephone and also use IRC at the same time, so if it is really 
necessary, I can help out with this. Bernard, can you do both at the same 
Another option would be to have a split meeting. Let's say that the IRC 
group meets one hour earlier, and then a digest is presented to the concall
