2017 Newsletter: 61/69 — PreviousNext — (Attach.)

Sydney Harbour
WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 9 - 14 OCTOBER 2017

Hello and Welcome,

MORE PRESENTERS NEEDED:

We need a fresh group of SIG presenters for our meetings.

Most of us just come along to be entertained. The usual speakers have done their bit over the years. Now it's YOUR turn.

It's easy. Just think of “Show & Tell” in Primary School. Think of a computer-topic. Bring it along and give a demo. We'll help you set up in the “hot seat”.

THANKS

Meetings This Week:

Programming - Tuesday 10th Oct - 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 October 10 at 6pm. We'll see some new microprocessor applications and programming examples.

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

Most Stuff Happens in the Browser These Days

This topic was aired in a recent How-To Geek Newsletter, and it's true.

Think about how you use your computer. Where do you spend most of your time? For most people, it's probably the browser: it contains your email, your calendar, your social networking accounts, the news you read, the videos you watch, and maybe even the documents you collaborate on.

We would also like a discussion on alternatives to Norton for a long-time subscriber. What programs provide:-

  • Backup & restore
  • Security & identity
  • Performance monitoring
  • Cover of multiple devices
  • Saving passwords cf. Vault in Norton
  • Technical support
  • Modest cost

We'll have the usual Q&A and member stories including the now infamous nbn experiences.

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

Here are a few recent items mainly from How-To Geek:

  • CCleaner build 5.33 hacked but do you need it? Empties out too much.
