Hi Ya-Li Wu,

This could be low internet connectivity, can you test your speed?

Best is to exit out of the room and come back in. We are also livestreaming on, perhaps try this at least for the sound.

I am new user. I clicked the link and watched few minutes of the real-time video around 3:40pm, but suddenly my screen showed "offline". In addition, I could not read slides clearly.

Great spirit Pahriadi, but before you start suffering from net-lag, watch out for the Sunday sessions, they are Asian timezone friendly. 

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Hi, greeting from Indonesia.

We have a holiday in Turkey that weekend and I will be away (which is why I didn't submit a proposal).

I'll try to catch a session or two while on the road if I can (they have wireless on the coach) :)
