Meeting Agenda For February 2019

February 5 - Check your email for details

February 12 - Board Meeting

The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting. In case you aren’t aware of it, our board meetings are open to all members. So if there is something on your mind, an idea you’d like to introduce, or a gripe (gosh, I hope not), you are welcome to come share it with us.

All members are welcome to attend. You don't have to be a Board member.

We meet for dinner at 6:00 p.m., meeting begins at 7:00, in the conference room of the Horseless Carriage Restaurant, Galpin Ford, 15505 Roscoe Blvd., North Hills.

February 19 - What Do I Do Now with my Old XP Computer?

During our meetings, sometimes someone will mention that they have an old computer, maybe even one still running XP. When there are legacy programs which are meaningful, they don’t want to lose them. Reminders are repeated that XP is no longer updated nor supported which means it can be risky to use them for Internet purposes.

Here is Stew Bottorf to give us some of his ideas on this topic. What he has to say may be helpful if you are still using that old computer. If you have one “on the shelf,” not quite ready to toss out, it may give you ideas about reviving it. Incidentally, we are not responsible for “discussions” which may arise at home because of these ideas!

So do come and hear what he has to say!

Just kidding - Webmaster couldn't resist temptation.

February 26 - TUGNET Dining at California Pizza Kitchen (CPK)

California Pizza Kitchen
9301 Tampa Ave, Northridge, 91324

Menu and stores info

This month we will be dining at one our favorite restaurants in Northridge. Come join us as we all sit together and order from their varied menu. I sincerely hope you will take advantage of this easy way to help TUGNET raise needed funds.

They also have a rewards program so don't forget to use your card or register for their rewards program. That way you get your own rewards too.

They give a generous 20% to organizations like TUGNET who schedule a dining event. This is a well-liked restaurant by many of our members so we hope to visit periodically during this year. We will be meeting in the banquet room.

Here is your opportunity to help TUGNET while you enjoy a lovely, healthy meal with no preparation or clean-up. Really — what can be better than that?

Most get there between 5:30 & 6 p.m. Hope to see you there.

There are servers waiting for you — I think it’s called a win-win!

Try to come as the number of guests always an influence as to whether we can return.
See you there!

It's always more fun eating together!
