Come join us as at our August monthly meeting where we'll be featuring the following presentations:
Bruce Mittelman will be talking about and showing some of the new features in Apple's upcoming OS X 10.10 Yosemite operating system. Everything from Notification Center, to Safari, to Spotlight and everything in between has changed with this new OS release, representing a step up from what was previously available.
Jerry Glacken will be giving a presentation on router security. These days, almost everyone has a router sitting between their Internet connection and their computing devices. But many don't realize how to properly set up and configure their routers to make their Local Area Network more secure. Jerry will show you what you need to know to keep yourself safe.
Louis Perez returns with another installment of his "Magical Mystery Tour of the Web" which presents a collection of interesting and educational web sites surrounding a common topic. This month's tour will focus on Usenet, one of the oldest areas of the Internet.
Catherine Mascis will give a brief presentation of Story Mill, the application that makes it easy for writers to fine tune the creative writing process.
So come on out and join us for a great night of fun and learning.
