[AG-TECH] Continuation of AG Services International Meeting

Due to the UK having a public holiday on Monday, and myself no longer being available.  The meeting has been rescheduled (new dates and times listed below).

Please note, the Virtual Venue has also been changed to a bridged Venue.  Therefore, those who will be connecting from home (especially those in Europe), can now use lower bandwidth alternatives.   Therefore, in an effort to support as many connection options, users are able to join the session using EVO, Skype Audio or a H.323 device.  Though, Access Grid connectivity is preferred.  Please contact me if you intend on using the bridging service.

In an effort to reduce bandwidth, especially for those connecting from home, could participants reduce the number of video transmitting streams and if at all possible, use standard definition streams rather than HD streams.

Many Regards,

From: Jason Bell

But if I wanted Patience,

I would have become a Doctor.
