What i'm seeing is a struggle between two forces who just want to be used.
The people who support the BCT chat room want them to use it, and the people
who support TT are wanting them to use it. Granted, I like TeamTalk, but
it's the chat's mottorator who decides which service he will use, and...he
seems to have decided.
TeamTalk doesn't allow a mottorator to show web pages on the screen at his own pace. It's like using a blackboard in IVocalise.

Hi, actually teamtalk, if you have forward threw server enabled only uses 5.71 kbps of bandwith

I have to object at this statement. How much "quality" do you really need in these chats anyway? I mean, it's really only a vocal stream. In this situation, a 22KHZ sampling rate is probably more than sufficient. No one's going to be broadcasting high quality music or any other kind of audio feed.
While it might be nice for the techies to have these cool numbers designating higher "quality", I still think that it's more often than not overkill. That also means a waste of bandwidth. Why spend 50% of your bandwidth just for a little bit higher quality which most won't even notice or care about, when you can do the same conference using just 20%?
Quality is nice when it comes to sound seeing tours and other audio-sensitive recordings. For everything else, I don't think technical specs matter as much as the material being discussed, and the people participating.

If possible, you should use teamtalk. It sounds much better, especially if everyone has the quality set at 100% and the sampling rate at 32k

Subject: [bct] Sunday Evening Hollistic voice chat
I would like to start a very casual hollistic voice chat on Sunday evening, starting at 8 Eastern, 5 Pacific; I realize it's very late for people in other parts of the world, but I can record it and podcast it. This will be very casual and people can share spontaneously what has worked for them. I'd like to leave it open to discussion of everything from herbs to vitamins to whatever supplements or techniques work for you; you can come and listen if you'd rather not participate. I have no licenses or degrees in nutrition, just some experience and enthusiasm for the subject.
To participate, just go to http://www.blindcooltech.com and press enter on the chat link; if you've used the chat room before, you can enter any user name you like, and press enter on login. If you haven't used the chat room before, a small bit of software will download to your PC before you can login. You may have to go into the control panel's sounds and audio devices sections to adjust your microphone.
I've never been a moderator, so don't know if I can control individual voice volume on the chat. But I look forward to talking to some of you on Sunday evening at 8 Eastern, 5 Pacific.
