The August 13, 2006 meeting of the Golden
Triangle PC Club had a total of 22 participants. The GTPCC was called to
order a 2:00 PM by the club president, Don Schoening, who welcomed all
members and guests.
After a brief discussion and introduction, the meeting was turned over to
Greg Badeaux of NFO Technologies who gave a great presentation on the
maintenance and management of computers and their components. In spite of
the failure of the Lamar computer, the presentation was a great success
with a wealth of information and tips on giving our computers a longer
life as well as better performance. A brief discussion on Microsoft's
"Vista" was also given.
After a Q & A session the drawing for door prizes was held with 2 winners
receiving Flash Drives (donated by Office Depot), 1 winner of the Shadow
Copy program (donated by NTI), and 1 winner of the Adobe Acrobat 6 program
(donated by NFO Technologies). The GTPCC greatly appreciates these door
Greg Badeaux offered a CD of his presentation as well as a utilities CD
for those who requested them by E-mail,
firstname.lastname@example.org, to be picked
up at the September 2006 meeting.
After a brief plea from the president to utilize our web site, and with no
further business the meeting was adjourned at 3:55 PM.
Our next meeting will be held September 10, 2006, and will feature a Q & A
session hosted by Ira Wilsker. Bring your computer questions for answers
by show and tell.
Respectfully submitted by
for Danny Ramsey, GTPCC Secretary
