Sydney Harbour
WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 8 - 13 MAY 2017

Hello and Welcome,

Meetings for This Week:

Programming - Tuesday 9th May - 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 May 9 at 6pm. We'll see some new microprocessor applications and programming examples.

Past meetings:

2017

At the April meeting Alex showed a schematic he designed using EasyEDA, the free online schematic, circuit simulator and PCB design program, and discussed a game he wrote using the Arduino and a cooperative task scheduler.

Friday Forum - Friday 12th May - 9:30 am - 12 noon

Josephine Wiseman will demonstrate her new projector from Kogan with a view to the Club buying one too.

Showing static screen-shots — the Kogan Product page will probably disappear when stocks run out.

Roger Foulds will then update the meeting on his further experiences with the iPad Pro.

Communications - Friday 12th May - 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Tech Tips:

Carefully read the results of a Malwarebytes scan

Here are the results of a scan run by Malwarebytes Premium Trial 3.0.6 showing two supposed unwanted pop-ups (called NewScientist and NewScientistRepeat).

The trouble is that I had created these two Windows Schedules myself.

They are designed to give a few beeps just before radio station 2RPH is due to read articles from The New Scientist (8.30 pm each Wednesday). The other pop-up beeps when 2RPH repeats the reading at 6.30 pm each Sunday.


Malwarebytes

For each entry found, Malwarebytes should maybe ask "Did you write this?" and if so, not demand that it quarantine the entry.

It should, of course, remember this information for the next time it runs the scan.

So much for Artificial Intelligence!
