This Week at DVMUG 08-14-2017

This Tuesday we have the annual Apple User Group of Rossmoor/DVMUG Film Fest. A lot of members have put a lot of time in to make this event happen so please show your support by attending. Afterwards there will be wine & cheese and we’ll announce the winner in each category as well as the overall Best of Show, as voted by all those who attended.

John and Anne have merged the Internet-BBS SIG and Web Publishing SIG into the Internet SIG and have moved it to a new day and time, Saturday afternoons, 2 to 4 pm. This month John and Anne will cover iCloud as well as other Internet-related subjects, including the DVMUG BBS.



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.
