Hello and Welcome,
Details of our first meetings for 2015 are listed below.
Friday 9 January - Friday Forum - 9:30am - 12:30pm
The Linux operation systems offer some interesting alternatives to the various versions of Microsoft Windows and particularly for those people who wish to continue using computers currently running Windows XP.
At this meeting the group will take a further look at the Ubuntu operation system to see what it can offer users.
There will also be a question and answer session for members who may have encountered problems over the holiday period.
Friday 9 January - Communications - J Lucke - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
The security of Internet communications is certain to be an ongoing concern during 2015.
The "linked and synced" communication devices people now use provide limitless opportunities for unscrupulous hackers.
With that in mind, John Lucke will begin the year with a review of the basic weapons and precautions that are available to help keep your Internet communications safe.
John will discuss firewalls, anti-malware protection, wireless security as well as the precautions that can be taken when making financial transactions on the Internet or dealing with e-mail spam.
There will be time for a question and answer session and general discussion at the meeting.
John has also suggested that you make the following New Year Resolution and do it today: Remove all your plastic cards from your wallet or purse and photo-copy or photograph them before they get lost or stolen. You may be sorry if you defer doing this till a later time.
John Mathews
