Dear Forms WG,

In preparation for the virtual face to face day on Thursday, please take 
some time to prepare your computers.

In a recent telecon on the Backplane XG, we had some difficulties with the 
Yugma web conferencing software, so lets try to handle this in two ways:

1) the difficulties may have been because some people did not have the 
latest version of the Yugma software, so please visit the site 
https://www.yugma.com/ and get the latest copy.

As of today, the free version looks as though it allows one to host and 
invite up to 20 participant, so the problems we experienced were not 
likely the result of using the free version.

Also, upon seeing the need for an upgrade install, some of us tried to use 
the "view only" mode, which does not require a client plugin.  This is the 
mode that was failing.  It could be that it was failing because the view 
only mode was having trouble interacting with an older copy of the client 
plugin, but this is only a conjecture, and therefore we need a backup 
plan, which is #2

2) There is a second free web conferencing option.  Please visit 
https://www.webdialogs.com/join/ and scroll down on the left to click the 
"system check" link.  Looks like support for FF3 has been added recently, 
but I am pretty sure one of IE or FF will be required for this backup
