Hi Matthew,

Welcome to the list -- glad to have you on board!  I've played with
Gobby/Sobby but we haven't used it in an actual meeting as of yet.
Currently, where we are meeting the wireless is hit or miss.  I'm
trying to get us lined up for some nicer diggs but as yet we don't
have it.  When we do, them something like Gobby and some remote
audio/presence might be cool.  We python types seem to be spread out
quite a bit between Chicago and Denver.  I have a feeling that the
situation will change though<g>.

You are right about the Unix bias it has, I've had negative reactions
from some Mac users about using Gobby but hopefully that will be a
non-issue if they are local.
