Some of the members had also attended the 
APCUG Regional Computer Conference and said that 
they needed more than just on presentation to absorb all the information. 
It was a very interesting afternoon with some very interesting people.
Maybe that's why I became an official member of their Computer Society.   
I was invited to Supper after the meeting and had something very light.....

What wasn't to nice was a case of food poisoning which I picked up on Friday night.
It's the reason that this was posted this late. It was a bit of a struggle making today's presentation.
This time the old saying about getting of the pot actually applied.....
