Meeting Agenda For September 2016

September 6 – Windows 10 Privacy

Windows 10 is a reasonably good operating system but Microsoft’s attitude on privacy settings leaves a lot to be desired. The privacy policy may be more about the lack of it.

Learn more about controlling your computing privacy and improving Windows 10 performance by managing background apps and exposing previously hidden options.

Elliott Stern, the PC Maestro, known for Perfecting Your Computer Backup–The Art of Backup, shows how to manage Windows 10 privacy settings.

Take control of Windows 10 so you really do have a better, safer, somewhat private computing experience.

Sept 13 - TUGNET Dining Event

This month we’ll be dining at a restaurant which, I believe, is familiar to all of us: Marie Calendar’s.
The location which is most central to most of us, yours truly excluded, is in Northridge.

Marie Calendar's
91310 Business Center Drive
(This is across from Costco)
Northridge
818-993-0704

They will be sharing 20% of the total food and drinks ordered by our members and friends. The offer is good throughout the time they are open. If you don’t have a flyer, please request one to be sure your meal counts.

There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury, assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldn’t that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100 each time we have a dining event, with two events we’d have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell me, what’s better than that?

Look forward to seeing you. Remember to invite friends and family to come as well.

Most get there between 5 & 6 p.m.

If you don’t have a flyer, contact Jeff Kent at jeffersonskent@gmail.com to get one.

It is important to have a copy of the appropriate flyer for these occasions. It is always available, even if you are not’t able to get to a meeting to pick it up. Please ask for it, either by e-mail or a phone call. The e-mail addresses and phone numbers of board members are on page 2 of the newsletter, so take advantage of that and ask for a flyer when you think you’ll be able to join us.

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers who otherwise wouldn’t be there!

Sept 20 – Legal Reference Basics

Our presenter will be bringing a workshop called “Legal Reference Basics” which will provide an overview of the Los Angeles Law Library, its collection, programs and services, focusing on the Main Library downtown L.A. and the Van Nuys Public Library partnership; and an overview of vetted free legal websites which your members can access from any computer.

How many of us even knew this very informative and useful branch of the LA Library system even existed?

Be sure to join us tonight and learn about the FREE services available to us.
