Agenda For April 2016
April 5 -
Email Etiquette with the PC Maestro
the PC Maestro? Yes, thats Elliott
Stern and hell be here again. This is a very important
topic which will help everyone with their email. Since we
all send email, lets make it the best we can.
Email has become the replacement for paper correspondence
and old fashioned letter writing. While it may have replaced
the method of communication (paper to electronics) there is
still a strong need to user proper email etiquette. Spelling,
grammar, addressing, email layout and formal signatures are
not a thing of the past, yet many computer users throw old
style correspondence standards out the Window when sending
and receiving email.
Are you YELLING in your email conversation by typing in ALL
Do you use BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) or abuse the system using
Send-to and CC without regard for who your email is addressed
Are your subject lines relevant to the body of your email
These are just a few of the topics to be discussed when Elliott
Stern, Computer Counselor at Maestro Computing presents:
Email Etiquette, The Forgotten Habits for Proper
Elliott does not LOL when he sees poor email etiquette.
Some of the mistakes being made guarantee a big OMG. If you
abuse proper email addressing instead of using BCC, you could
be found guilty of violating the governments CAN SPAM
Does your email follow proper email etiquette standards? Ii
hope we have a good attendance to hear Elliott explain
why this is important.

TUGNET Dining Event
Bobs Big Boy
will once again visit this Southern California restaurant
in Burbank/Toluca Lake. The Big Boy standing out in front
has made the news in the past when someone stole it. But,
as of this writing, he is in place, there for all the tourists
to join him for a picture. Maybe some of our group will do
so also wont that be fun to have on our web site?
Bobs Big Boy
4211 W Riverside Drive
Burbank, CA 91505
Did you know that this location is the oldest remaining Big
Boy in the country? Come enjoy the nostalgia of dining in
the 1940's transitional design of streamline modern style
while anticipating the free-form 50's coffee shop architecture.
The towering BOBs sign is an integral part of the building
design and its most prominent feature. The restaurant was
honored in 1993, receiving the designation as a :STATE POINT
OF HISTORICAL INTEREST by the state of California.
Come join your TUGNET friends while enjoying their famous
menu with all the favorites of yesterday plus some updated
items for your dining pleasure.
Since you probably will be eating lunch and/or dinner this
Tuesday evening, do come join us. Most
of our TUGNET members prefer to come during the 5:30 - 6:30
time frame. However, the offer is good all day, just be sure
to tell them you are with TUGNET. I hope you will be part
of the group!
is important to have a copy of the appropriate flyer for these
occasions. It is always available, even if
you are nott 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 youll be able to join us.
If you have a favorite restaurant youd
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 wouldnt be there!
