Subject: Re: [xcbf] Bi-weekly XCBF telecon

Can I repeat my request that instead of a telecon, we use a NetMeeting 
Chat session?

The latter puts all participants (international or US) on the same 
financial footing (free), but most importantly, it provides a complete 
transcript of what is said in the meeting, allowing a more relaxed 
meeting where you can, if necessary, be interrupted or diverted but not 
miss what has been said.

If a shared application is also used, it enables all participants to see 
and to agree any minutes that are produced at the time.

Finally, it enables documents to be displayed for discussion and 
amendment or the addition of comment.

Maybe the one-hour session could be split into an initial telecon chat, 
then a trial NetMeeting.  If others find the latter works well (and I am 
sure they will), we can move the balance in that direction for future 

If we do not do this for the meeting on the 23rd, I would like to see 
this proposal on the Agenda for the 23rd.  Thank you Tyky.

PS It is not difficult to host such meetings, and I could do so myself, 
but Paul Thorpe has a permanent IP address, which makes things easier, 
and has considerable experience in hosting such meetings.  I suggest 
that if we DO decide to use that medium, we rely on Paul for the 
hosting.  (If people do not have experience of this medium, Paul is 
usually quite happy to give advice on setting up the software and in 
conducting a trial session with him in advance of any real meeting.)
