DVMUG Meetings

Zoom

We are doing virtual meetings using Zoom. We encourage you to connect with us on Tuesdays at 3 pm.

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions that you may have on the DVMUG BBS. It is a great place for getting answers, especially in the specialized areas of the Gateway.

DVMUG members can check the weekly DVMUG News email or the DVMUG BBS for the Zoom meeting login.

DVMUG Zoom Classes

These classes will be included as part of membership in DVMUG. That makes the cost of membership an even better deal at only $40 per year. The cost of one of these classes via Zoom at the adult school is $25.

The classes will also be recorded and made available on YouTube only to DVMUG members. You can watch these classes on your Apple TV or Roku device on your big-screen TV any time you want.

DVMUG Picnic
As always, the group has supplied the meat and drinks, and the members have been encouraged to bring a dish or a dessert. This event has always been a lot of fun and we encourage members to join us for what has been a very enjoyable time with good food and good company.

Make your sad Mac, iPhone, or iPad 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 or solid-state drive. We can troubleshoot problems with malware, adware, and botched installations. We can help set up 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). Remember that the services you receive as part of your DVMUG membership beat what you would pay elsewhere. The DVMUG office rent never stops and donations are gratefully received.

We can only take three appointments for the Saturday clinic in keeping with good COVID-19 practices. You must have full vaccination with a booster for a clinic appointment.
