Hello and Welcome,
The Sydney PC Users Group is offering four meetings next week for members and visitors. Here are the details:
Monday 14 November - Stocks & Shares - M. Robertson
5:30pm - 8:30pm
The stock market volatility continues to perplex and trouble shareholders around the world.
On Monday the members of this SIG will scan the Internet for sites that analyse the factors influencing world markets and provide some feasible predictions.
In addition they will look at some interesting shares to see if they are worth buying now or in the future.
It should be an interesting evening!
Tuesday 15 November - Seniors - G. Grant - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Graham will have a look at the new Windows 8 program and if there is time check out some useful utilities.
There will, of course, be a question and answer session at the beginning of the meeting to consider computer issues and problems.
Tuesday 15 November - Genealogy - T. Eakin - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
Terry reports that he is doing really well following his knee replacement three weeks ago and he is planning to lead this month's meeting.
At the meeting he intends to look at some reports on the Internet including the just released Crown & Peace records from Ireland. It contains the Irish Prison Registers for the period 1790 - 1920 which has over 3.5 million records.
Saturday 19 November - Web Design - R. Hume - 1:30pm - 4:30pm
When a web site is being built there are always new pages to be planned, designed and put into place. This will occur again when the Web Designers meet next Saturday.
During this process questions will be asked and answered not only about the task at hand but about issued the members want to explore.
Why not join them and learn about the joys and tribulations of building a web site. You will be welcome.
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
