Meeting Agenda For September 2015

September 1 - Let’s Get Acquainted with iPads and iPhones

Our members are no longer only PC users with many having iPhones, iPads and more. The iPhone and iPad has been talked about in a couple of our SIGs but it seems appropriate to have a meeting examining them for all our members.

Jim Gates, a long-time Apple user, has agreed to come talk about these products. He will be presenting some simple, specific information about the iPad and iPhone. It will be an overall look at technology in terms of use and comfort.

He will be welcoming your questions so if there is something you’d like to see or explained, please let me know well ahead of the meeting. Remember, he is only talking about these particular products so please don’t ask questions about others.

I hope you will invite those you know who use these products. Guests are always welcome!

Everyone will be able to learn a tip or such to help them in their every day use.

September 8 - Dining with TUGNET: Dining at Two Guys from Italy

This time we’ll meet and park in our familiar Tuesday evening environment. Two Guys from Italy is a few doors down from the Granada Pavilion, in the same complex at the San Fernando Mission Blvd. end.

Our dining fund-raiser will be through 9 p.m. with most TUGNET folks arriving in the 5:30 to 6:30 time period. It will be a treat for us to have a lovely dining room to ourselves. Turn left after the first couple of booths when you enter the main dining room.

This is where we take our presenters who can come early and avoid some of the traffic they’d otherwise be fighting. The specialty is, of course, Italian. But they have great salads and a number of other than Italian items on the menu. And yes, they do have pizza, if that’s your choice.

I hope many of you who haven’t joined in at our previous dinner events will come. It will be especially nice to have our own space.

Tip: Early-bird specials until 6

This time the offer is valid during the 5:30 - 9:00 p.m. dining time. Flyers will be available.

It is important to have a copy of the appropriate flyer for these occasions. It is always available, even if you are not’t able to get to a meeting to pick it up. Please ask for it, either by e-mail or a phone call. The e-mail addresses and phone numbers of board members are on page 2 of the newsletter, so take advantage of that and ask for a flyer when you think you’ll be able to join us.

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers who otherwise wouldn’t be there!

September 15 - Windows 10 in Action

Now that Windows 10 is available and many have already had it downloaded, it is time to take a look at it up close and personal. Rosemary Lloyd, a member of the Big Bear Computer Club, has been using the Windows 10 pre-release version for quite some time.

Rosemary is well known for teaching workshops on many computer related topics and regularly teaches classes for the Big Bear Club. Many who have attended the Southwest Conferences will recognize her.

We will welcome her and learn her feelings about Windows 10 as it is now. We all know there will be bug fixes and such coming, but as a whole, is it working well? Rosemary will tell us what she thinks and show us the major features which make it worthwhile.
