Sydney Harbour

Hello and Welcome,

Special study by the University of NSW:

Dear SPCTUG Members,

My name is Riza, and I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales, Australia. My area of interest is in music psychology, and specifically looking at what pieces of music and which films “stick with” people.

I'm personally very interested in what people over 50 have to say about the sort of media that “sticks with” them. The survey usually takes about 30-45 minutes to complete, so it's not a quick survey, but I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to submit their responses!

The survey is anonymous, unless you choose to disclose your name and email to go into the prize draw to win 1 of 4 $50 Myer vouchers. You can choose not to enter this prize draw.

Finally, please feel free to share the survey link around to anyone else who may be interested in completing it.

You can go online to the survey and follow the link there — this will save having to manually type up the URL from the survey flyer into your browser :-)

Thanks everyone!

Riza Veloso

Meeting This Week:

Main Meeting - Tuesday 26th Sep - 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


We have a fantastic presentation lined up for Tuesday 26 September!

Microsoft is our special guest, with Service Advisor Paul O'Malley from the Microsoft Store at Pitt St Mall our guest presenter.

Paul will be joined in the audience by Patrick Hines, Microsoft's Community Coordinator, with a great Windows 10 presentation planned.

The full details of what we'll see will be unveiled on the night, across both sessions (6.30pm to 7.00pm, then the 7.00pm break, then 7.15pm to 7.55pm), but what we know at this stage is that Paul's presentation will focus on:

  • Windows 10 and accessibility
  • Security
  • How to “tune up” a PC with Windows 10
  • As well as a sneak peek at the next big update coming to Windows 10 later this Spring with our ‘Fall Creators Update’.

We will have a compressed general business, news and Q&A session so as to give Paul maximum time to put on a great presentation.

We will have an external 500GB USB 3.0 Samsung SSD as the major raffle prize, one that works like an external hard drive, or a super-fast USB stick on a serious dose of steroids, rather than a drive which you install into your computer - and if we're even luckier, there might be a Microsoft prize of some kind as well.

Don't forget, we also have Microsoft coming in October to show us even more of its latest and greatest technologies, so the next two months are not to be missed!

See you on Tuesday night!
