ASCCA Computer Training

The Australian Seniors Computing Clubs Association is  running a series of training sessions at 280 Pitt Street Sydney during September. Details are available here.

The Sydney PC User Group is a member of ASCCA.

Hello and Welcome,
Alex Zaharov-Reutt has arranged for Ninemsn to make the presentation at the Main Meeting on Tuesday and Peter Collard will lead the popular Digital Photography SIG on Friday.
Details follow:
Tuesday 23 August - MAIN Meeting -  5:30pm - 8:30pm
This month we have Ninemsn back to tell us about the brand new version of Windows Live Messenger, still the world's most popular instant messaging program.
Presenting will be Mikaela Lancaster, head of Windows Live Australian, and the Australian Windows Live Messenger product manager, Adam Ireland.
Adam's summary states that: "Windows Live Messenger (formerly known as MSN Messenger) is Australia’s #1 IM chat service. The latest product offering, Messenger 2011, allows users to connect via HD video chat and unique social integration. This presentation is designed to demonstrate how you can connect with the people that matter to you most via Windows Live Messenger."
Sounds like Microsoft wants to make sure its own Windows Live Messenger service stays capable despite the pending Microsoft/Skype acquisition!
So... see you at the August Main Meeting for the usual Questions & Answers, stellar site selections, prizes and more!
Friday 26 August - Digital Photography -  P. Collard - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Peter will start the meeting with a question and answer session and review the photographs of brick walls taken for this month's photo exercise.
The main topic follows on from last month's discussion of "what do you do with your photos?"
Peter will take a brief look at archival storage and then discuss "photo books".
The various options available and the software used to prepare a photo book will be considered.
If members have made a photo book they are encouraged to bring it to the meeting and show their handiwork.
