Re: things not going so well at the Conference

Because I belong to another mailing list, and they started a chat using 
the mailing list. They used Conversation 
Station too. The list is called BNUI:
It's a blind and visually impaired-themed computer-technology chat thing, 
and Con Station was just fine for 
them. What's the difference? It's a mailing list, and people are invited 
to the chat via the list. So I said, 
why not?
