Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Better?
Daryl Northrop - NOVA Greens (to All - Entire Audience): Yes, thank you!
Daryl Northrop - NOVA Greens (to All - Entire Audience): HI everyoen!

Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): It should be, yes! We're on lunch break now until 1pm though.
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Can you hear anything?
Charlie Jordan (to Organizer(s) Only): I hear mostly dead air, with occasional pieces of words and sounds of objects being moved and dropped. I suspect that dialup cannot carry both voices and computer code.
Charlie Jordan (to Organizer(s) Only): Please advise. Should I communicate this way, by e-mail
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Well, there's not much more than dead air anyway right now, since we're on lunch break.
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Yes, you may communicate via email or via this chat, and I will relay.
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Remaining agenda items are as follows :
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Treasurer's Report, Power Shift Campaign, Officer and GPUS Rep elections, Discussion of current campaigns, Discussion of candidate recruitment, building locals, and setting next meeting.
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Kirit will be here after lunch for the treasurer's report. The Power Shift campaign speaker has not shown up yet, and may not.
Charlie Jordan (to Organizer(s) Only): The connection has just broken off twice and reestablished itself. I'd better try something else.
Charlie Jordan (Blue Ridge Greens) (to Organizer(s) Only): GoToMeeting crashed a short while ago, wiping out the contents of the chat screen. I'm back again. I can hear voices, something about someone doing something, but I can't understand the intent.
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): OK will try to improve audio. Kirit and I are the only ones in the room.
Charlie Jordan (Blue Ridge Greens) (to Organizer(s) Only): Also, the connection keeps breaking off.
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Yes, that has happened here -- I noticed that.
Chris Fink (to All - Entire Audience): Me (to All - Entire Audience):
