Take today to install and setup Ventrilo Voice Chat, even if all you want to do is listen to your fellow beekeepers interacting.
Follow the simple instructions (don't be afraid to ask for help) and come in anytime today or tonight - not to forget peopl are around all week end. And see why we keep praising this wonderful voice chat program.
Ventrilo (the version we use only allows 8 people at a time to use the program) there is NO purchasable version allowing more EXCEPT for acorporate version which we do not qualify for.
But, there are services which RENT Ventrilo in blocks of 25,50,75,100,200, etc. member packages at a monthly rate. Right now we do exceed on occasion the 8 member limit, maybe not enough to justify paying a month rental and contract period for a 25 member package, but if we get more users to interact through Ventrilo, I'd gladly use some of the contributions I've received from you generous members to buy the server space and member extention to allow for greater participation.
Please give this a try, especially new users and new beekeepers - you folks should really get to know the moderator staff and fellow members who nightly enjoy a family like get together. Members from around the globe using this service and adding you to the list of voice chatters would be a wonderful pleasure to the rest of us.
Follow the simple instructions here and come on in. NOTE: this is for Windows users, we have an alternate channel for Mac OSX users and will soon have our main IP forum accessible to both Windows and Newer Mac users alike.
LASTLY, don't let your connection speed bother you - dialup users do fine with Ventrilo, we have several and there are little to no lag issues that hinder great conversations.http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php?topic=5880.0
