Last Week's Discussion

Last week was exactly the kind of thing I think OCGG should do - round (or square) table discussions on any technical topics that interest the group.

Let's do it again this next Tuesday at 9:30 am in the Prickly Pear!

Laptop Buy!

Shown in today's paper is a Fry's Electronics ad for a Lenovo laptop.  It appears to be the model G555 or G560, 15.6" screen, 3GB memory, 160GB Harddrive (a little small, but serviceable), web cam, etc.  The price is a low $349.99.  I don't think you can do much better than that for a laptop of this size.

Sales are limited to 1 per customer.  If you're in the market .......

RSS Update

During one of the last meetings we discussed RSS.  I've found a good link that describes a variety of software available to read RSS.  http://bit.ly/fNw4EE

Here are several other links to a variety of software/services:

How to Rip and Burn your DVD collection - http://bit.ly/fi0vmL
How to recycle your old electronics - http://lifehac.kr/dWT6di
How to put your Wii games on HDD (techie stuff) - http://bit.ly/dG1HSE

And not so techie, Why Humans Can't Walk in a Straight Line - http://bit.ly/eZjreJ

Enjoy.

If you have any ideas for future OCGG meetings, let me know.

This Week's Mtg - RSS


Let's talk about RSS and the readers used to view such things. What is RSS? Go to www.whatisrss.com for additional information.

I use RSS everyday, and I think you will, too. Once you accept the value of the service.

If you already use RSS, tell us about the reader you use.

Several residents received iPads for Christmas (whether they wanted them or not!). Bring yours to the meeting - maybe we could start an iPad group to discuss the MANY apps available.
