Hello and Welcome,
The Smart phone SIG has ended.
This group was led by John Shiel in a very professional manner. His preparation for the SIG meetings was very thorough and thoughtful and he presented the sessions with considerable skill. In addition, he travelled from Newcastle each month for the meetings. His leadership was greatly appreciated by everyone who attended the SIG and the Club sincerely thanks John for his contribution.
John has given us copies of his presentation slides and these are available on the first page of the Club's Web Site. They should not be missed!
Monday 13 September - Stocks & Shares - M. Robertson - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
John Lucke will lead the Stocks & Shares group this week.
The meeting will commence with a general discussion on the current stock market and those particular stocks that are of interest to members.
The Inside Trader program will then be used to demonstrate how it can generate lists of stocks from market sectors and share price data. If time allows, there will be a demonstration to show how various chart arrangements can be set up within the program.
Tuesday 14 September - Programming - N. Hoffman - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
At the August meeting of this group Alex showed the circuit and programming details of his tune-playing alarm clock and showed his design of an electric footwarmer mat. Peter showed the Logicator system for developing programs for PIC and PICaxe chips from flowcharts. Les showed details of the remote monitoring security system he has designed.
A footwarmer and a remote monitoring security system! What will this group do next? Come to the meeting and see - you will be welcome.
Saturday 18 September - Web Design - R. Hume - 1:30pm - 4:30pm
The group is continuing its task of improving and building the club's web pages. As part of this process, the group is building an information site on how to configure web pages to make them easily navigable and efficient. When it is completed this site will be a valuable resource for all members.
So until next week, health and happiness,
Please remember if your e-mail address is changed for any reason at all, unless you tell me your new address you will not receive these weekly updates! Any change of address should be notified to firstname.lastname@example.org
