Hello and Welcome,
Details of next week's meetings are below.
Tuesday 18 August - Tuesday Forum - T Kelly - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Cloud storage of key files and other essential data should be part of every computer user's backup strategy.
However, it is important that these files and data be securely encrypted to protect them from being compromised.
At this forum the group will look at a number of free programs and other solutions to address this problem.
If time permits the group will also look at some of the new features of computer architecture such as Secure Boot and UEFI. 
As always the meeting will look at some interesting websites, free software and gadgets as well as have a question and answer session.
Tuesday 18 August - Family History - T Eakin - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
At this meeting Terry Eakin will discuss the New South Wales Births, Deaths and Marriages website which was closed to allow new data to be uploaded and the webpages to be revised. 
The revised site was just launched this morning and it can be seen at .
