Meeting Agenda For April 2017

April 7 - Networks

Tonight Noe Garcia is coming to talk to us. Noe is a friend of Asa Watanabe, who suggested we invite him. We will be learning a lot about networks and what goes on behind the click. His company specializes in building and maintaining networks which are then controlled by the owners. These are enterprise solutions but I’m sure we will better understand what makes a network do what is expected. Our home networks, even if it’s only two printers connected to our computers as well as the Internet, have a myriad of things going on before we get the output we are expecting.

A bigger issue is the network we are hoping to access as fast as possible called The Internet of Things. Other than the obvious security issues, what can we do to have better results? We just might get some tips which will be of help. This will be an interesting evening with information we don’t usually have the pleasure of receiving.

April 18 - Various Medical Devices with Daisy Kuhn

This is a rather strange title, I know, but of all the devices Daisy Kuhn has had experience with, I don’t know which to emphasize in the title. If you have been a member for awhile, you know Daisy. She has been an active member for almost 20 years. I do want to mention that Daisy is also a retired professor, having taught at CSUN.

I remember back when we first started making more use of the Internet, probably about the time AOL was sending out all those CDs, Daisy was so pleased to be able to read a local newspaper online before her sister received her paper copy - in Germany! Also, most of us had just heard some commercials, or more likely just seen some ads, from Microsoft about something new called a “Surface.” We wondered, what is a tablet? Then we had a meeting and we all saw one: Daisy had already purchased one and loved showing it to us!

For her presentation, though, she is going to talk about medical devices with which she has had experience; from then to now, maybe how they have developed.

You don’t want to miss what she has to share with you.

April 25 - Dining with TUGNET

Two Guys from Italy
16915 San Fernando Mission Blvd.

Granada Hills, CA 91344
(818) 360-2292

It's located a few doors south of our meeting room, at the corner, in the same complex.

This being the fourth Tuesday of the month, it is time for us to dine together. And what can be better than going to one of our favorite restaurants, Two Guys from Italy. They have a varied menu with, obviously, the emphasis being on Italian dishes. But there are delicioussalads to please those who may not want the pasta dinners, as well as sandwiches and soup. They are a generous donor who pays at the end of the evening. Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence as to whether we can return.

Be sure to pickup a flyer at the meeting, You need to present it when ordering.

Look forward to seeing you. Remember to invite friends and family to come as well. Most get there between 5 & 6 p.m.

Thanks to all who have supported our dining events through the year, it has helped our treasury while you had a pleasant time and filled your tummies. We will continue to keep you informed of the schedule of restaurants in the new year.

Please note: Dining events will be planned for the fourth Tuesday from January on. That will accommodate the board of directors meeting changing to the second Tuesday each month.

There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury, assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldn’t that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100 each time we have a dining event, with two events we’d have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell me, what’s better than that?

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!
