Tico Byte for September, 2016

PC Club members,

The PC Club mourns its President this month, Chuck Jennings, who died on 9/11/2016 of leukemia. Members are encouraged to post memories of him by email to Dick, who will gather and include them in the minutes of this month's club meeting. The meeting will be on September 17th, at the Pan American School in Belen  starting at 9 AM. Members may bring anything computer-related that they have questions about or would like to share with the group on a time-available basis.

  1. The club Board has appointed Dick to serve out the remainder of Chuck's term as President. He will open the meeting and preside over club business. It seems obvious that Chuck would want us to take care of business before starting his eulogy.
    1. Ken will welcome guests and new members.

    2. Ken's Treasurer's report:  $2138.32 in the treasury with 47 paid members. Members can log in and view the details under “Club Business - Financials” on the club website.

    3. Nominations for officers whose terms end at the end of this year (i.e., Vice President, Webmaster, & Member at Large) will be accepted from the floor for elections to be held next month. The Board nominates Bill V for VP, Dick for webmaster, John for Member @ Large, and Helen Frame for Program Chair (a position in the Bylaws, but not filled in modern times, until now). [Note: If Dick is elected for Webmaster and President, he will have only one vote on the Board, except to break a tie.]

    4. Since John has agreed to run for Member @ Large, we will need to discuss the position of Ombudsman. Does the membership want to continue to be represented to the Board by an Ombudsman? If so, the Board will need to appoint someone to fill out the term until the end of next year. If not, the members need to approve deleting the position of Ombudsman from our Bylaws. Any necessary changes to the Bylaws will be carried out by the Board and presented for membership approval at our next meeting.
    5. A committee for the annual Christmas party is needed. Volunteers/nominations will be accepted from the floor or by email. We need ideas, a venue, and possibly turkey cookers (depending on the venue).

    6. Dick will ask if there is any new club business.

  2. Tio will tell us a little about Chuck's illness and give us insight into his wishes for the club.


  3. Dick will moderate the microphone going around the room to hear your comments and questions. All are invited to share their views on the future of the club. Due to the unusual circumstances, time will be extended for this item as needed.

  4. Break
  5. Topics of interest {on a time-available basis}

    1. Helen may tell us about using DropEvent to attach photos.

    2. Dick may tell us about why you might want to use Task View in Windows 10.

  6. Helen will ask for future topics and presenters: Tell us what you want to know about.

This is one meeting you shouldn't miss,

Dick Sandlin
