Backtalk Crash!

Mon Dec 11 17:43:07 2017

Oops! The authors of Backtalk are deeply sorry to confess that our program has failed to operate correctly. This is due to an error in Backtalk itself, or in one of Backtalk's script files, or in the configuration of the system. It is probably not due to anything you might have done. The page below contains an error message and a detailed dump of the state Backtalk was in when the error occurred. This may be useful to anyone trying to fix the problem.

All this information has been logged, but it may still be helpful for you to report this error and the circumstances under which it occurred to the system administrators.

Thanks for your assistance in getting the bugs out of this conferencing system. We sincerely and humbly beg your forgiveness.
