I agree with Rick, here.  It was never _my_ goal to try to stream any of
the talks live. (Though if someone wants to take on that responsibility,
more power to them!) My goals were/are only:
1) As a first step, to record the talks & make them available for later
download by anyone,
2) For speakers talking to SVLUG from remote locations, to have some
live output capability back to the speaker, maybe audio, video? so that
they can take questions & comments live.
