In this matter Speakeasy has acted well. I will not here discuss what
happened, but as of right now, NYLXS has a good connection.
I'd like to make a request of Hangout subscribers. Let us not discuss in

Myself, I will not further discuss in public any non-technical issues of

Thank you Hangout folk!
