As always, the group will supply the meat and drinks, and you are encouraged to bring a dish or a dessert. This event is always a lot of fun and we encourage you to join us for what will be a very enjoyable time with good food and good company.

This Week at DVMUG 07-14-2019

General Meetings are taking a break over the summer months but that’s not to say we’re not doing anything. This week, in place of the General Meeting, DVMUG will be having its annual picnic. This year it’s at the same location as last year, in the heart of Rossmoor, at the Sportsman’s Park in the Hillside complex.

 


 

The Diablo Valley Mac Users Group helps Macintosh users get the most out of their computers. Software, hardware, digital filmmaking, photography—these subjects and more are covered in the club’s monthly General Meeting, workshops, and Special Interest Groups.

You are invited to attend our general meetings at the Pleasant Hill Community Center for vendor and club presentations on new hardware, software, and other items of Mac interest. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a Question & Answer segment where you are welcome to ask about your own Mac problems; there’s a break during which the club Mac experts answer your questions one-on-one, and a raffle in addition to the main presentation, usually by a software publisher or hardware manufacturer.

Dues for the entire family are $40 per year-a bargain! Especially since it includes access to the club’s award-winning monthly newsletter, ApplePRESS, and attendance at all Special Interest Group meetings including the monthly MacClinic, where club experts diagnose and repair what’s wrong with your Mac as well as helping you with software upgrades, hard-drive replacement, and similar improvements.

Each summer this SIG meeting explores the food and recipe resources available on the Internet and does in-house sampling and comparing of both common and exotic foods. Those who meet at the office at 5 pm, before the SIG meeting’s official start at 7 pm will have a bite to eat before returning to the office to check out recipes and info on the Internet.

Make your sad Mac happy again! At DVMUG’s legendary MacClinic., we can upgrade your Mac’s memory (you supply the memory; we can tell you where to get it). We can upgrade most Macs’ data storage by installing a new hard drive or solid-state drive. We can troubleshoot problems with malware, adware, and botched installations. We can help setup of your iOS device, back it up to your Mac, and transfer your data to a new iOS device. Appointments for the MacClinic must be made by phone (for triage), then time slots will be assigned. Remember that the services you receive as part of your DVMUG membership beat the heck out of what you would pay elsewhere. Obviously, the DVMUG office rent never stops and donations are gratefully received.
