A CD was distributed of some CMOM graphics.
Next month:

March: Notes from the Secretary_March 10, 2006

Program Report:
First time we tried smaller conference room at Canterbury. Screen visibility
was a concern, but smaller intimate setting was pleasant and interactive, in my view. Bruce Belcap MC’d meeting, with Susan Tarleton giving presentation on features of InDesign CS2. Questions and answers followed, lively discussion.

Planning: Discussion on setting up our wireless network and examination of our purchases and plan of action discussed. Thanks to everyone involved especially Jerry Gifford, Scott Cote, David Powell, and Ken Morley for your actions! If I understood it right, we are trying the router and high gain antennas first and we have a backup plan.

Bruce Belcap called David Patterson about IP problem gaining access. Website discussion followed.
Ken will assist Bruce in communication.


Please let me know if I have left out anything important or you would like to correct anything before I post on the Web. Thanks, Susan Tarleton

February: February 10, 2006
Notes from the Secretary_Feb 10, 2006 Club Mac of Monterey Board of Directors’ Meeting

Program Report:
Ron Brunet gave a great presentation on iWeb from Mac’s iLife software pkg. We also compared some of the features to the NVU authoring tool. There were around 11 people there and we sat in our reccommended U around the speaker and it worked as hoped in limiting side dialogues.

Planning Notes: Ken was unanimously welcomed as he volunteered to take the Presidency. A consensus was taken. Other concerns were discussed on the web management transfer to Bruce from Dave and topics for our next few meetings were suggested. Susan offered to show Indesign in March, and others offered to supply a laptop setup. Other topics for meetings were: i Tunes, Acrobat Professional (perhaps at a later time presented by Malcom), current modes of networking and connection, online financial sites, RSS, sources of info on the Web, and we hope that Jerry and Suzi can do an iMovie video thing in a few months if they are willing. We are still working on getting a connection at Canterbury Woods.
