Their December meeting featured 60 Tips in 60+ Minutes. It was back by popular demand with a new version of the fast-paced program. Attendees heard tips that included the speakers’ favorite web sites, favorite ways to use and buy software and hardware – and other tips they could take home after the meeting and implement immediately. They also learned about free online ways to solve their hardware and software problems.
Guru Jerry Seregni of Fox Channel 8 gave several of his own tips and other club leaders filled up the remainder of the 60 with favorites of their own. Members of the audience also gave their own suggestions. And virtually none of the suggestions will cost a penny to use.
Where did I find this meeting information? It was on their homepage with a link to more that took me to their Meetup page. www.nopc.org
Many groups have holiday parties in lieu of their December meeting and TPCUG is no exception. Members were invited to attend the annual Yuletide get-together and one of the perks of the party is the opportunity to visit with members they don’t have a chance to visit with at the regular meetings. As they have done for several years, attendees were encouraged to bring those items for which they no longer have a use (except for old software or computer parts that they wouldn’t use on their best day), but hate to see packed away. People have donated notepads, small fancy soaps, computer paper, gift cards, cups, glasses, computer cords, usable zip drives, computer books, calendars, newer software ~ these are only a few of the items that have been brought to other holiday get-togethers. www.topekapcusersgroup.org
They had a very interesting program in November broken down into two parts. The first part covered tips for social network safety; president Bernie Conradi showed ways to stay safe and how to protest yourself on social network sites. The second part of the program covered Tips for Monthly PC Maintenance. Bernie showed the features that are included in the Windows operating system to help you perform PC maintenance on a regular schedule. www.cbwug.com/map.htm
