Please also download and install the newest Mediaplayer (7.1) from
microsoft, if you haven't done so, onto the display machine. That will
guarantee that you'll see during the seminar a new movie I put in the test
slides ;-)

Again this is a note to all who plan to attend the second RPPT seminar
at 1:30 CDT (Virtual Venue: Full Sail Room): 
Please bring a laptop with you. We will run multiple tests among all
regarding RPPT's advanced features during that seminar. I will put up
slides by noon at:
http://plainsman.engr.ku.edu/ag/rppt/rppt2.ppt. It is advised that you
download and print out the slides before attending the seminar, since we
will stop using DPPT at the time of testing. We will use
plainsman.engr.ku.edu as our DPPT server and lasker.engr.ku.edu as our
server at KU. 

You may now download the latest RPPT from
!!NOTE: PLEASE make sure it is unzipped to C:\AG\RPPT (I have reasons
I'll explain in the seminar.) This is the version 1.9 and it'll be
to 2.0 soon if all the tests passed and people are satisfied.

RPPT Version 1.9 is a lot smarter than ever before:
* Easier to learn and use 
* The server has session logging capability and display detailed
on connections 
* The master and clients can now reconnect to server automatically if
server is rebooted during a talk (unattended presentation mode)
* The client and master now detect the landscape or portrait orientation
slides, and show them in appropriated area you "dragged and defined" on
display screen, without annoying black surrounding or window frame
* Good support of animations and remote laser pointer

I'm looking forward to your joining the seminar :-) Please register your
attendance at:  http://scv.bu.edu/accessgrid/seminars/

Thanks and see you soon,
