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.

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.
