Hello and Welcome,
We only have one meeting next week - the Main Meeting. Alex will be there to introduce the presenter, answer questions and show us some of the things that he carries around in his pockets.  
Tuesday 28 June - MAIN Meeting - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
Hi everyone!
The main meeting is nearly upon us, and our main meeting presenter is Mikaela Lancaster from NineMSN and Microsoft's "Windows Live" team.
Here we'll learn that Hotmail will celebrate its 15th Birthday in July, we'll learn about "key features" that "people may not be familiar with" such as the mysterious-sounding "sweep function", we'll learn about the SkyDrive service and "Active View", and we'll learn some "fun Hotmail facts".
Naturally, Mikaela Lancaster will also be able to answer any questions we might have, and if history is any guide, we'll have plenty of questions for Ms Lancaster to cast her eye over!
I'll also be at next week's main meeting for the question and answer session, so see you at the main meeting!
The Penrith Group 
The Penrith Group's venue at the St Clair High School will not be available next Saturday because of the school holidays. Their next meeting will be held on 6 August 2011.
Broadband is in the news this week so we offer a few titbits on the subject:
The National Broadband Network map for New South Wales;
The National Broadband Network map for Australia;
Some broadband facts, fiction and urban myths; and
 Optical Fibre - how it works. 

Please remember if your e-mail address is changed for any reason at all, unless you tell me your new address you will not receive these weekly updates! Any change of address should be notified to
