Digital Photographic SIG
John Lucke's presentation notes for the two tutorials he presented to the Digital Photographic SIG are now available from the sites below.
This freeware program determines the size of folders.
The club has two great meetings this week.
Alex Zaharov-Reutt has arranged an excellent presentation for Tuesday's Main Meeting and Frank Bowman has prepared another impressive range of topics for the Penrith SIG meeting on the following Saturday.
The details are below.
Tuesday 28 February - MAIN Meeting - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
We're nearly into the third month of 2012 already, but before we get there, our second PC Users Group Main Meeting awaits! This month we can proudly welcome Mathew Ho, the Channel Marketing Specialist from ASUS Australia, who will be demonstrating some of the latest and greatest from Asus.
This will include the world's most powerful tablet computer - the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, the world's first quad-core tablet that blows away the iCompetition, complete with special clip-on keyboard that not only brings the convenience of physical keys, but adds the luxury of an additional 8 hours of battery life - among a host of tech specs that may very well make your eyes pop.
Asus is also betting big in the Ultrabook stakes, with Windows 7 now and in the not-too-distant future, Windows 8, with Ultrabooks the PC world's fight back against the tablet tsunami, with Mathew set to demonstrate the exciting Asus Zenbook UX31 13.3-inch.
Mathew is also going to show us, on screen, a new "MeMO Tablet" that, at least in its first incarnation isn't due for release in Australia when it launches (although anyone who can buy things from overseas could get one if they really wanted to), with Mathew giving us a sneak peek into the future as Asus sees it.
For the main meeting raffle, Asus is generously donating 10 x Asus Seashell Mice, valued at $19 RRP each, and 10 x Asus Crosslink cables, valued at $70 RRP each, so a good proportion of members that buy raffle tickets will walk away with something on the night!
See you on Tuesday night!
Saturday 3 March - Penrith Group - F. Bowman - 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Frank Bowman has planned another full programme for this meeting.
The meeting will commence with a question and answer session to share problems, advice and tips before the group moves on to:
1. try out the program Microsoft Movie Maker;
2. continue the HTML code writing exercise from where it finished last month;
3. look at some more features in Easeus Partition Manager;
4. examine the features in the program PDFZilla;
5. check a graphical calculator; and
6. take a look at an entry level eBook reader and see what free books are available on the web.
While it is unlikely the group will examine all of these topics in one session the uncompleted tasks will be carried over to next month.
The Penrith SIG meets at St Clair High School, Endeavour Avenue, St Clair.
You are welcome to come along and enjoy the meeting.
