    Hello and Welcome,

    To SIG Leaders and members, you will all be happy to hear that at the last Committee Meeting the Committee approved the purchase of a new computer with the latest 'bells and whistles'. Once the specifications have been sorted it will happen. It was also decided to purchase a portable projector screen.


    Tuesday 23 June - Main Meeting - 6 pm - 8 pm

    The main meeting will start with Robert Israel's sites of interest, followed by the Q & A session, so if you have any questions please be sure to bring them along.

    Dell have confirmed that they will be the presenter for the evening. As we all know from past presentations by Dell, we can look forward to an interesting evening.

    Alex was invited to Santa Clara, California for a few days with Intel et al., he will be back in time for the meeting, no doubt with tales to tell and possibly some new gadgets to show us all!

    • Q&A & tips: bring us your problems and solutions.

    • Main Topic - Photoshop Express - the on-line version of Photoshop. If Peter's dial-up is not up to the task of him learning enough, he will fall back to The GIMP v2.6.)
