WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 6 - 11 February 2017

Hello and Welcome,

Meetings for This Week:


Friday Forum - Friday 10th Feb - 9:30 am - 12 noon

We usually have a Q & A session in the first hour, lasting up to an hour (if members have some interesting problems).


Josephine Wiseman has several topics to discuss including:

  1. Membership form from our website. Steve has kindly sent her versions in .doc .docx, .pdf. All show boxes in random positions pushing them to 2 pages; she cannot delete them; help is required as some changes must be made.
  2. A breakthrough in WIN10 on her network.
  3. A few words on Trend Micro which she was "unlucky" enough to win at the Main Meeting.


Bob Backstrom will show how the Black Screen was fixed.

This Newsletter is composed using Gmail, and sent out in HTML format. This means that the message consists of HTML elements (like paragraphs, images, colours etc.), but Gmail will not let you actually edit the HTML statements themselves. This makes the fixing of the Black Screen rather tricky.

Gmail will not even let you change 10th of Feb into 10th of Feb, so we will find out how the pale-green background colour was changed from the 3-digit form to the 6-digit form, thus solving the problem.


Roger Foulds will discuss the Amazing new Windows features you'll want to try.They come from the Windows 10 Insider Preview people and will interest all who are using Windows 10.


Communications - Friday 10th Feb - 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Topic: Phones mobile and landline

In this new age of enlightenment, phones both mobile and landline are still one of our most important means of communicating. But it seems everyone has a question to ask or a story to tell about phones or phone service providers. At this meeting we will consider all these issues and more. Also John will give an account of his attempt to set-up a U-Bute, newfangled, multiple cordless phone system designed to do everything except feed the chooks.

There will be time for general discussion and a Q & A session as well.

John Lucke
