WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 9 - 14 January 2017

Hello and Welcome,

Meetings for This Week:

Programming - Tuesday 10th Jan - 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Come and show your projects, and see some others. We have a computer with a projector, so bring along picture files of your project and we'll project them on the wall. We have a broadband internet connection, so discussion can be wide ranging.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday January 10 at 6pm. We'll see some new microprocessor applications and programming examples.

Friday Forum - Friday 13th Jan - 9:30 am - 12 noon

Q & A session + discussion on Windows/Computing topics.

Communications - Friday 13th Jan - 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Josephine Wiseman thought that she was done (battling email transfers), however she has had a major breakthrough in transiting from Windows Mail in Vista, a long hard road which she will make into a short presentation outlining the pros and cons of the various options.

Roger Foulds has downloaded AirDroid and has also played with SnapPea which was demonstrated by John Symonds a while back.

He finds that there are other alternatives to manage smart phones on PC and some with iOS and he will discuss these.
