Mailing List Now Member Only

Monday, 2nd July, 2012 – 23:28 by Pete Smith

Hi.

After much careful consideration, the WAMUG Committee have decided that the Mailing List, as of 1 July 2012, will be a member only list. This was not a decision taken lightly but suffice to say that a full explanation was given on the mailing list prior to the change.

The ‘new’ procedures on how to join and subscribe are fully explained on the ‘Join’ and the ‘Mailing List’ pages.

At this stage, previous subscribers to the list who are not currently members have not actually been removed from the list. Their ability to post, however, has been blocked.

Only current financial members can actually post to the list.

Website Moderator on behalf of the WAMUG Committee.

New Monthly Meetings Page

Tuesday, 25th January, 2011 – 18:10 by Pete Smith

G’day all.

The WAMUG website is finally undergoing some renovations. We’re learning as we go (and probably forgetting and having to re-learn too! – weeelll, me anyway!!!) so it will be bit-by-bit.

The ‘Meeting’ page is the first to be modified. It has the latest details of the next meeting and will be updated regularly.

Keep an eye out on the site and see if you can spot the changes. Some will be minor and others somewhat more involved. We’ll let you you know about some but not all!

Regards,

Pete Smith

Monthly Meeting 0909

Wednesday, 26th August, 2009 – 23:09 by Administrator

G’day again all WAMUGGERS

Well, August has nearly past us by. Have you set your iCal for next Tuesday 1 September 2009 for the next WAMUG meeting?

In no particular order:

Denice Williams is going to talk to us about Digital Photography;
Daniel Kerr will tell us about iWeb; and
Hopefully, Craig Bruce will be able to give us an Apple TV demo (although this is still to be confirmed).
(Unfortunately, both Daniel and Craig were crook and unable to make it last time. Rumour has it they left their Windows open and caught a virus?!?!
Good to hear they are both well again.)

Plus, anything else which comes to mind on the night.

Of course, don’t forget the question and answer session at the beginning of every meeting and a cuppa and biscuits at the end.

(Details are subject to change without notice)
