Think you’re intimately familiar with the inner workings of Macintosh hardware and software? Then you may want to stop by the
Boston Macintosh User Group’s (BMac)
meeting on Aug. 11, during which they’ll play Stump Our Chumps!, a game that challenges audience members to toss out the most esoteric questions they can and see if they can stymie BMac’s resident “chumps.” The panel will include Tech Superpowers’ Ian Blanton, Duke Design and Consulting’s Jon Duke, CallAndy.com’s Andy Espo, MIT’s Al Willis and Andy Holleron of Boston College and X-MacGenius. The fun gets underway at 7:00 p.m.; visit the BMac Web site for the location and directions.
Elsewhere in the world of Macintosh User Groups (MUGs), The MUG Center’s Chuck Joiner notes several upcoming user group meetings, including a visit by Mark/Space representatives at the
East Bay MUG
on Aug. 12,
Shareware 101 presentation on Aug. 12,
Atlantic City MUG’s
“Tips & Tricks and Other Neat Things” on Aug. 13, a flyer construction overview at
The Northwest of Us
on Aug. 14 and more. Visit each group’s Web site for meeting times and locations.
Finally, The MUG Center’s update this week also features information about 25 percent discounts for user group members from Prosoft Engineering and a Regional Liaison Dispatch update for Oceania. The report was filed by Graeme Moffatt, who talks about Macintosh 20th anniversary celebrations and other MUG activities happening in Australia and New Zealand.
