* Note Taker's statement :  I endeavored to record important notes and decisions, but this is quite challenging as my connection to Mumble is vastly inferior through my i-phone and the connection keeps dropping out every few minutes.  I hope Mumble will update their program so I can once again use it easily on my Mac.   - Major
