Area Computer Club
& Meeting Minutes
Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday,
February 13, at 7 PM, in the Winters Room of the James V. Brown Library, 19
East Fourth Street, Williamsport.
We will be having a "Show
& Tell" session. Attendees are encouraged to bring their
favorite useful tips and tricks.
Our last meeting was opened shortly after 7 PM
Tuesday, January 9 2001 by Vice-President Kathy Kolb. The minutes
of the November 2000 meeting were approved. There was no
treasurer's report due to John Yarosz's absence, but we had no
expenses in the past two months.
- Jim was frustrated once again in his
attempt to place a classified ad in the Williamsport
Sun-Gazette when they apparently misplaced his fax,
despite being told after his email was misplaced that
faxes would be preferred.
- We would like to thank Streetmail, a free e-publication of OneMain.com for its
users, for listing our meeting in their weekly event
- Members are reminded that we have been
offered a merchandise discount at Discount
Computer Supply & Service
in Berwick by owner Rod Dietz, and Jim is going to post
it on the Club's home page.
- We heard from a new attendee who was troubled with a
local retailer's inability or unwillingness to create a
system for her that would be compatible with her older
scanner. We discussed several possible technical issues,
but were unable to reach a conclusion as to the nature of
the problem without specific information.
- We addressed envelopes for all local computer retailers
listed in the telephone book. Kathy is going to send out
Club promotional materials along with a request that they
distribute them to interested parties.
- Kathy suggested the February meeting topic.
- We discussed ideas for future programs. Suggestions
included MP3 players, Mac OS X, Palm Pilots, and
web-enabled cell phones. If anyone would like to
volunteer to demonstrate any of these products, or speak
on any other computer-related topic, please contact us.
