11 Jan. 2018 – An Intro to Digital Slide Presentations

In an attempt to get more members to give presentations at club meetings, it was thought that a basic introduction to software generally used to produce a digital slide show might be productive.  By bypassing the ‘paid for’ systems which are very popular. an introduction was made to the free software produced by Apache called Open Office found at:  http://www.openoffice.org/

After details of downloading and starting, a basic presentation using IMPRESS was shown including how to set the background and pick the font size and style, then how to include more slides and how to insert photos or videos.

This demo was followed by a Q and A session with a few antidotes thrown in!

4 January 2018 – Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

It would appear the re-start of club meetings might be a date too near the holiday season or perhaps the sickness that’s been much in abundance or perhaps the wet and windy weather, but in any case, attendance was very low. However, those who did attend found lively discussion and interesting happenings taking place over the break period.
