Meeting Agenda For March 2019

March 5 - Protecting Your Digital Life

A guest you all know from past presentations, Bob Gostischa, more commonly known as Bob G., will be back with us for this meeting. He is bring us a new presentation which will be of interest to everyone.

Between ransomware, data breaches, cryptojacking, supply chain attacks, and mobile malware, it's never been more important to protect our digital life. Join presenter Bob Gostischa, IT security expert and Avast evangelist, as he explains the importance of guarding our online presence. Our security and privacy are constantly in danger of being attacked from many sources. Staying secure and guarding as much of our privacy as possible is a constant challenge. This presentation covers how we can protect our presence on the web as well as our computers (Windows and Mac), tablets, smartphones, and other smart devices.

March 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.

March 19 - Cutting the Cord

We will have Hewie Poplock, Central Florida Computer Society / Sarasota Technology Users Group to explain how he went about ridding himself of the expensive TV bills.

There are many reasons to cut the cord. Most do so to save money. Others do it to have better choices and just to be able to fire their cable company. There are many choices of products and equipment, as well as services that are now available to let us change the way we have done things in the past. Hewie will talk about over the air and over the Internet services, including the many ways to fulfill your wants and needs as to TV viewing. He will include information about Broadband and even Internet home phones.

This presentation will help you understand many of the newest possibilities for TV viewing and what to look for to satisfy you and your family. Be prepared to have a lot of the confusion make some sense and to determine if it may be the move for you soon. TV, as we know it will disappear in the next few years and you will understand what is happening and what choices are available now and what to look for down the road.

He is willing to answer questions so I think you will find it quite interesting.

March 26 - TUGNET Dining Event

Watch your email for details or check back here.

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!
