Hello and Welcome,
Details of next week's meetings are below:  
Tuesday 10 March - Programming - N Hoffman - 5:30pm - 8:30pm

The members will have some new microprocessor applications and programming examples at Tuesday's meeting.  
Friday 13 March - Friday Forum - 9:30am - 12:30pm
At this meeting Roger Foulds will explore the merits of using the free office program, Libre Office.  
The program has a range of components similar to those found in the commercial office suites and it can read and use many of the formats used by those programs.  
There will also be a general discussion and question and answer session at the meeting. 
Friday 13 March - Communications - J Lucke - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
Communicating with family and friends was once very simple but we now use a wide range of devices to talk to people or contact them with e-mails, instant messages or other information sent to social media sites. 
As a result we now have multiple contact lists which are not the same on our computers, tablets and telephones.
John Lucke suggests that with a little understanding and clever management it is possible to synchronise these contact lists.
At this meeting John will discuss address books, contact lists, favourites and social lists, people applications and how these can be imported, exported, backed-up and synchronized.
He will also explore how groups and folders can be created or deleted from a wide range of email clients devices and systems.
There will be time at this meeting for a general discussion and a question and answer session.
John Mathews
