Internet SIG, April 2018, Old & New Friends

April 28, 2018
10:15 amto12:15 pm

 

 

First, please note the changed locations below for the meeting, but not breakfast… for this month only. 

Some friends get lost and new ones found… while others get better with age.  While not so emotional, web services can do likewise.

I recently renewed my interest in the bookmarking site Xmarks and shared it with y’all.  Well it fits in the lost category, but I found a new site that works very well and will introduce y’all.

As for the last category, Gmail has been around and very dependable for a long time now.  While like an old glove to some of us, not everyone has had the pleasure, so we’ll go over it.  Just this week, a long rumored upgrade was made available (when is the last time you got to opt-in to something?) and has about half a dozen bog improvements.  Ever “snoozed” an email?

All this plus the news and the funnies…

Beginners’ SIG, April 14th, 2018

January 14th, 2018
April 14, 2018
10:00 amto12:00 pm

 

 

Topic: Word Processing: We’ll show you how to use Microsoft Word, the Word Processor that comes in the Microsoft Office (MSO) suite, to create memos, letters, envelopes, flyers, signs and even business cards. We’ll explain the “ribbon” interface that’s common to all MSO apps like Word, Excel and Powerpoint. We’ll review the more commonly used tabs and operations done with MSO. If time allows, we’ll also demonstrate the simple Wordpad word processor and the Notepad editor which are built-in to all versions of Windows, i.e., you get them for no extra charge, unlike MSO. We’ll also introduce you to free word processors like Open/Libre Office and Google Docs.

Internet SIG, March 2018, Replying, Socializing, and Interfacing

December 24th, 2017

Often an email only needs a simple reply.  Inbox has been using AI to suggest a few for some time now..  It has begun to spread… and I’m sure it will do so even more over time.  And believe it or not, it’s pretty good – at least for a computer! I’ve heard of techies even using them to resist saying things they might later regret!

Everyone’s main social network has been called out for some questionable activity and their stock value is suffering as a result.  Will you leave? If so, where might you go?

The net has brought us ways to share stories, share rides, and even share pictures of our favorite meals!  There is a new app that will now let us share knowledge… on any subject… and at whatever rate at which we’re will to sell or buy it.  Let’s take a look.

All this and news, tips, and the funnies!
