Hello and Welcome,
Vale David Diprose - Club President 2000 - 2002

It is with regret that we  advise members of the recent death of our former President, David Diprose, after a long illness. David was enthusiastic, energetic and hard working and it was no accident that he was “at the helm” when our club finally emerged from debt.

David returned to his home state of Tasmania a couple of years later and started a new business which proved successful. He had always been interested in art and when he re-married, he was doubly happy as his new wife was a prominent artist in Tasmania.

The funeral was held on Tuesday 28th June at St. David's Cathedral in Hobart and your committee sent a condolence message with some Australian native flowers on behalf of members.

Next week's SIG meetings are:

Friday 8 July - Seniors -  Leader - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Peter Collard will lead this SIG again this month.
Peter will show the group two sets of utility programs that are useful in several ways. While they are similar they are built along different lines.
Sysinternals has many diagnostic tools that Microsoft failed to include in Windows, including some things users would pay to add. The Syinternals suite is free and now owned by Microsoft!
The utilities from Nirsoft go even further and add things that other software makers forgot such as a viewer for cache files, a replacement for the file association manager, enhancements for Windows functions and diagnostic tools - all sorts of goodies. The NirSoft package manager unites all these with Sysinternals to make an easy menu system.
Friday 8 July - Communications -  J. Lucke - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
John's presentation this month is titled "Modern Computer Networks (Part 2)".
This will cover Local Area Networks, Ethernet and Wireless connections, installing and configuring modems and routers, file sharing, synchronizing and backup, network security, media networks and lots more.
This presentation will follow the regular discussion and question and answer session.
