- Check the joint calendar, on the "Calendar" tab of this blog.
- Voice Chat Mode With Viewer 2 of Second Life, we're finding the voice chats are coming through more clearly. It is recommended that you use a headset. Otherwise, turn up your speakers to hear the presenter and pose your comments and questions by typing in the chat dialog box in Second Life. For more information about adjusting your Second Life settings for voice chat see: http://secondlife.com/support/quickstart/basic/Set_up_for_voice_chat
