November 2nd - Favorite Utilities and Tres Tips


What are your favorite utilities?  Every computer user should know about these favorites by APCUG and user group leader Judy Taylour. We will be showing a video presentation on her current favorites and how to use them.


Like a useful utility, everyone can use a hot tip.  We will be offering three: a Windows tip, a mobile hardware tip and a Linux tip, in short presentations.


December 7th - Annual Christmas Cheer raffle and pot luck - Start checking on gently used hardware and software items you can donate to the proceedings and what favorite holiday food items you want to bring for the pot luck.
