Building on the success of the MacBasics classes, George Kopp will be holding a special July 9 2-hour iPhoto MacClass at the Landwehr home (see registration info below):
by Tom Piper, aJMUG President
June is half over, school kids have gone home, we’re just a week from our next office move, and my new 3G S iPhone will arrive shortly . . . upgrades on computers were announced at the World Wide Developers Conference, but the long-awaited Apple netbook is still a dream. Meanwhile, the humidity has spiked, and we can tell that summer is fast approaching.
The minimum of eight registrants has already been met, so be sure to get your registration in as soon as possible while there is still room. My iWork ’09 MacClasses will be at Lewis and Clark Middle School on September 10, 17 and 24 featuring Pages, Numbers and Keynote.
The “Made on a Mac” image enhancement competition has begun, with your entry (one per member up to 2 megabytes in size) due no later than August 4 to firstname.lastname@example.org (see explanation below).
DVD copies of the videotaped (Steve Archer and Sharon Hanson) January, February, March, April, May and June meetings are available from our Library (see Bruce Heerboth to check any out, or get a copy). We are really busy with lots of membership benefits.
Next meeting we will enjoy the Annual appleJAC MacFixIt meeting. As in past years, if you have a need to upgrade to your machines RAM memory or possibly install a larger hard disk, appleJAC veteran members will be on hand to assist you. Please let us know in advance if this is the case so we can help you to get the parts and have tools available. We will again show you important maintenance steps to protect your Mac, and do a special presentation about setting up and using Time Machine, Apple’s own Leopard backup.
Last month, 45 appleJAC members, families and friends enjoyed the hospitality of Joe and Kathy Mertzlufft at their lakeside home. Due to the rain, the festivities were moved into their three-stall garage where everyone enjoyed terrific food (George and Mark again did a great job with burgers and dogs), warm commoradorie, and exciting weather. We even got one more member due to our great social and educational services.
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the next appleJAC Macintosh Users Group meeting on Tuesday, July 7, 2009, at 7:00 pm. Bring family, friends and new members to get the most out of your Mac and other Apple products.
