Hello and Welcome,
The Penrith Group will hold their first meeting for the year next Saturday. Their programme for the day is below: 
Saturday 2 February - Penrith Group  -  F. Bowman - 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Frank Bowman will start the meeting by holding a question and answer session around the table where problems, advice and tips are shared amongst the members.
At their last meeting the group installed DOS BOX on a laptop and successfully ran an old DOS game. They also tested Audacity, the free audio editor, and found it is loaded with features and is easy to use. Another free program they used was Freemake, which appears to convert videos from one format to another well and painlessly.
At next week's meeting they will view some online reports from the recent CES displays in Las Vegas, install Auto Play menus on CDs and DVDs, use a digital voice recorder and look at newspaper reports on the ten top tech innovations for 2012.

The Penrith Group meets at the St Clair High School, Endeavour Avenue, St Clair. All members are welcome to attend.
John Mathews
