    I just clicked on the website. It says

    "Oh no! It appears as though your event host has reached the audience limit on their Blyve account. Sorry about that!"

    I "joined" 20 minutes early. Just got this message:

    "Oh no! It appears as though your event host has reached the audience limit on their Blyve account. Sorry about that!"

    I'll keep trying though.

    The Institute of Medicine (IOM) committee recommends the name
    systemic exertion intolerance
    disease (SEID)
    for this disease. This new name captures a central characteristic of this disease—
