Board of Directors Recruiting

It’s that time again, folks: elections!

We will be presenting the Board of Directors candidates at the December meeting for approval/election by the members at large.

Would you be interested in serving? We meet once a month, generally the Wednesday after the general meeting, for a couple of hours, and generally have a grand time. We’d love to share the excitement and accomplishment with whoever else is interested in helping out the group.

If you are interested, please notify Leonard (at the front, on the stage) or Mo! (go right to the back table) and we’ll add you to the list.

Thanks so much for your consideration.

Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed a really great presentation! WOW!!

At Conrad’s, bus and train fares, various movie and studio gossip, buying a new car at dealerships, “birds of prey”, comic books to movies, Stargate excitement, adventure films pretending to be science fiction, what the next Mac OS might be called, and Hollywood politics occupied most of our time.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed…

At Conrad’s, we had Starbucks locations, Ingress anomalies, Steak ’n Shake, VR, iPhone photos used for billboards, Fiats vs muscle cars, pristine vs Palestine, alligators & snowbirds in Florida, iPhone in ketchup, boba straws, and silly Siri conversations to contend with.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

Who Are You and What Do You Do

At The Sweet Setup:

Every week we {aim to} post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

Today’s victim, er, interviewee:

My name is Adam Lee, and I am a (part-time) computer science student while working as a software developer. I also write my own site about things that interest me.

You can catch Adam’s complete story here: Adam Lee’s MacBook Pro Setup .

“Back issues” can be found here: Sweet Setup Interviews.
