Dedicated to making sad Apple devices happy. A staff of experts will help you add RAM, upgrade your operating system to the latest version, put in a new hard drive, or fix your slow-running or bad-acting Mac, iPhone or iPad. Appointments for the MacClinic must be made by phone (for triage), then time slots will be assigned. Just as a reminder, while the MacClinic is free, the club relies upon your donations to help offset the club’s ever growing expenses.

This Week at DVMUG 09-16-2018

This Wednesday evening will be our first General Meeting, in Pacheco Community Center, after the summer break. Our main presenter will be DVMUG Member – Verner Laursen who will tell us all about Genealogy and the MacFamily Tree Software. Verner led the Genealogy SIG for many years.

If you have a Mac with problems, call Rick Calicura at (925) 228-4992 for an appointment for Saturday’s MacClinic and DVMUG’s staff of experts will help fix or upgrade your computer. Be sure to call early, if you’d like an appointment for this Saturday. The MacClinic is a free clinic, however, donations are gratefully accepted that help support the club.

 


 

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 Pacheco 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.

DVMUG Mac Essentials Saturday, October 6th

Mac Essentials

Saturday October 6th
10am to 12pm

(First Saturday of the month)

DVMUG Office
396 Civic Drive
Pleasant Hill

Learn the basic ins and outs of Apple devices, the core interface elements—the menus, Finder, and Dock—so you can start working with files, folders, and applications right away.  Mac Essentials looks at concepts and apps (e.g., Mail) and examines that concept across the iMac, iPad, and iPhone, noting the similarities and more importantly the differences on each device. Each meeting will start with YOUR questions.
