We have met continuously since at least July 1992.

All of our meetings are free and open to the public. There is no individual membership fee.

Monthly Technical Presentations

Connection instructions will first be sent to our mailing lists and then linked here .

We will open the remote session at about 6:00 PM, so that you can join early to test your microphone, screen and video sharing.

Then we start at 6:30 PM with our BASE introductory level session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, smoke and mirrors, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space.

Sometime after 7:00 PM we attempt a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.

Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),

Possible Future Topics

What!

BASE Topic: What You Should Get with GIT

Presenter: James Conroy

Something fundamental, introductory, instructive, short, simple or small.

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

This talk will give you everything you need to know about how to set up a project, and perform the most common tasks.

You will also learn how to interact with open source projects using git.

MAIN Topic: Locking Down Your Web Browser

Presenter: Scott Granneman

What web browsers are doing for your privacy (Chrome, Brave, Edge, Firefox, Vivaldi, Safari)

Something more advanced, detailed, important, new, profound, significant, timely or useful.

Web browsers are the most important software on most computers, but if you are not careful, you can inadvertently reveal way too much information about yourself to websites, companies, and even the Web browser makers themselves. In this talk Scott is going to give advice and instructions for locking down browsers, as well as showing you some of the very cool new browsers on the scene. And on top of that, Scott is going to cover some brand new, not-Google, don't-track-you search engines as well.
