Upcoming Meetings

October 5th - Elections for slate of UCHUG Officers - Demonstration of Chromebit device which was delayed from last months meeting - Promoting Cyber Security Month a video from APCUG titled “Protect Yourself, Yourself” will be presented.

What works like a Chromebook but is the size of a candy bar?  We will be demonstrating the Chromebit, a computer in a stick that plugs into a TV or display's HDMI port.  With a USB or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, it provides a great web surfing experience under the Chrome OS, and is very affordable.

To promote October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month, we will be showing the presentation "Protecting Yourself, Yourself". This video will discuss cyber security and detail steps you can take to avoid cyber crime and reduce your chances of being a victim of ID theft.
