Thanks David for writing daily reports on our
http://schoolserver.org/0.4/Sprint progress and I apologize to all our 1st
voice call was choppy yesterday, due to our untested 3G backwoods modem.

Working better now!

So daily 3PM EDT voice calls (3PM NYC time on Skype) should be smoother
today and in coming days we hope, all who can join this week, please reply
to me with your Skype username -- or see you on #schoolserver on
