	Heh, that sounds fun. I can picture the NCSA lobby in little teeny tiny 
1/2" windows ... :D
	VIC is just the video component, you'd need something to take the job 
of RAT and then you have audio too. From that you could join in with a 
manual hookup, since you would need the VenueClient software and 
associated dependencies in order to browse venues. I'm thinking all that 
would probably slaughter the poor little PDA but it sounds like it's 
worth a laugh.
	For manual hookup, get the ports from the 'Properties' entry of the 
'Venue' menu of a VenueClient. You might want to also go to a venue with 
a bridge (or run one yourself against your venue server) to remove 
multicast from being a problem over the wireless.
