Process Explorer 14.12



Hello and Welcome,
Next week we have the Main Meeting on Tuesday and the Digital Photography SIG meeting on Friday.  Alex has found an interesting presenter for Tuesday and Peter Collard is fresh and invigorated after his recent holiday in Thailand.
Both meeting have a lot to offer. Come and enjoy them if you can. 
Tuesday 24 May - MAIN Meeting -  5:30pm - 8:30pm
Hi everyone, Alex here. Apologies for not making it to last month's main meeting.

Sadly I might not be at this month's main meeting either, as I have had to move to Canberra to help my parents with a massive clean out of the family home. I've been here for a week already and there's two or three months of work to go... sigh. It's not a permanent move; I will be back in Sydney, but for the time being I'm in Canberra.

So, who is coming to May's main meeting? Microsoft's Bing!

We've had Google come and visit us in the past, and with Bing the "other" search engine with a few tricks of its own, why not find out what Bing has to offer?

Coming from Bing will be Vincent Petit, the Consumer Search Manager, and Ming Foong, the Head of Search. Their message to us is:

"Find out more about online search and Bing, Microsoft's search engine. The Australian Bing team will provide you with a quick snapshot of the importance of search today, and present the latest innovations we are bringing to Australians."

Bing will be supplying a couple of packs of interesting merchandise and promotional stuff, which might or might not be Bing branded, but should be fun!

So... come along and discover what's new about Bing and why it's a legitimate challenger to Google!                                                                      Alex Zaharov-Reutt
Friday 27 May - Digital Photography - P. Collard - 9:30am - 12:30pm
The main topic for discussion at this meeting is "Macro Photography - up close and personal with a mosquito".
The group will also look at what software updates are available and participate in a question and answer session to solve any problems members are experiencing.
In addition, the photographs taken by members at last month's Hyde Park walkabout will be reviewed and critically discussed.
