Agenda For September 2015
September 1 - Lets
Get Acquainted with iPads and iPhones
members are no longer only PC users with many having iPhones,
iPads and more. The iPhone and iPad has been talked
about in a couple of our SIGs but it seems appropriate
to have a meeting examining them for all our members.
Jim Gates, a long-time Apple user, has agreed
to come talk about these products. He will be presenting some
simple, specific information about the iPad and iPhone.
will be welcoming your questions so if there is something
youd like to see or explained, please let me know well
ahead of the meeting. Remember, he is only talking about these
particular products so please dont ask questions about
I hope you will invite
those you know who use these products. Guests are always welcome!
will be able to learn a tip or such to help them in their
every day use.
September 8 -
Dining with TUGNET: Dining at
Two Guys from Italy
time well meet and park in our familiar Tuesday evening
environment. Two Guys from Italy is a few doors down
from the Granada Pavilion, in the same complex at the
San Fernando Mission Blvd. end.
Our dining fund-raiser will be through 9 p.m. with most
TUGNET folks arriving in the 5:30 to 6:30 time period. It
will be a treat for us to have a lovely dining room to ourselves.
Turn left after the first couple of booths when you enter
the main dining room.
This is where we take our presenters who can come early and
avoid some of the traffic theyd otherwise be fighting.
The specialty is, of course, Italian. But they have great
salads and a number of other than Italian items on the menu.
And yes, they do have pizza, if thats your choice.
I hope many of you who havent joined in at our previous
dinner events will come. It will be especially nice to have
our own space.
Tip: Early-bird specials until 6
This time the offer is valid during
the 5:30 - 9:00 p.m. dining time. Flyers will be available.
It 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!
15 - Windows 10 in Action
that Windows 10 is available and many have already
had it downloaded, it is time to take a look at it up close
and personal. Rosemary Lloyd, a member of the Big Bear
Computer Club, has been using the Windows 10 pre-release
version for quite some time.
Rosemary is well known for teaching workshops on many
computer related topics and regularly teaches classes for
the Big Bear Club. Many who have attended the
Southwest Conferences will recognize her.
We will welcome her and learn her feelings about Windows
10 as it is now. We all know there will be bug fixes
and such coming, but as a whole, is it working well? Rosemary
will tell us what she thinks and show us the major features
which make it worthwhile.
