We should try this, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea on such short notice.

I agree. Possibly we can try this out in a small group with Wolfgang next week and if all goes well use it for the next meeting.

On the other hand, I just read (while setting up Skype on my desktop) that the conference feature of Skype was "suspended" as of 2008-09-01. Since I rarely use Skype I'm not sure if this is a feature we need.

First I've heard. I do not think this affects us but could you send a url so we can check it out.
