[Videoconferencing] SeeVogh Research Network -- Update To Client

SeeVogh recently announced an update to the SeeVoghRN client, which is 
based on Java.

Historically, the client loaded and updated itself using Java Web Start, 
so you had to have Java installed, and would normally use a web browser 
to access JWS. Last year, Safari stopped JWS launching automatically, 
which made the browser-based approach more annoying.

The SeeVoghRN website used to automatically launch JWS. As of today, it no 
longer does so, but there is a link "Join meeting using Java Web Start" which will 
still work, at least for now.
(The old EVO from http://evo.caltech.edu/evoGate/ still works, too.)

The new application bundles Java Runtime and must be started as an 
desktop application, not from the browser.
In Linux there is a command "SeeVoghRN" and also in Gnome it seems a start 
menu item under "Other".
On other platforms, probably a start menu item and possibly a desktop 

So far, I have installed the application in ISAC2_222

(there is an Android app, too, which when I tried required a meeting 
number rather than letting you browse)
