	If you are participating in the SCGlobal tutorial or if you know of 
people that are (get them on the AGVCR list ;)) then please bear in mind 
some important information.

*	If you are bridging and on a personal node, you will NOT be able to 
run AGVCR alongside VIC and RAT due to the way unicast networking works. 
Only one application will receive the data so AGVCR will not see the 
packets since VIC and RAT will 'grab' them first. This happens on all 
platforms and has been a known issue for the long time (and is in the 
FAQ) but I thought it worth bringing to people's attention again in 
light of the upcoming event.
	If you want to still participate but have to bridge, find another 
machine to run AGVCR and set it to the same host/port information as 
found in the Venue Client properties.

*	AGVCR_Launcher does not hand AGVCR the unicast (bridged) host/port 
information either, so, again, you must be sure to configure AGVCR 
manually based on the Venue Client properties.

	If you are able to participate using multicast, you should not have any 
problems at all (AGVCR_Launcher will configure correctly and all 
Video/Audio packet data can be recorded by AGVCR)
