About

The Computers Are Easy User Group, or CAEUG, is dedicated to the use and understanding of computers and related subjects. We have an open forum where all levels of computer users can meet to exchange information, ideas and share knowledge about computers. We encourage questions at our meetings and work together to solve problems members are having. We share new ideas on how to improve our computing skills and put on monthly programs covering all areas of computing subjects, either with a guest speaker or one of our own members speaking.

We meet once a month at the Glenside Public Library, 25 East Fullerton in Glendale Heights, Illinois, at 9:30 a.m.. If you would like more information, drop our membership folks an e-mail.

Meetings

New Roller

Late breaking news - The library is now open, but still has restrictive meeting room rules.

There will be a meeting using Zoom video conferencing software at 10 AM on Saturday October 23rd. A meeting where you get to stay at home. The board decided not to meet at the Library due to the Delta and Mu variants of Covid 19 and Governor Pritzker's new mandates.

Our October 23rd, 2021 presenter: An APCUG speaker on CyberSecurity, the creator of Avast Antivirus software, Bob Gostischa. He shows how to use free programs to keep you safe on line.

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL TO caeug (at) caeug.net WITH SUBJECT LINE "Security" BY 10/21/21 AT 5 PM TO RECEIVE AN INVITATION LINK.

MEMBERS INVITING GUESTS PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL TO caeug (at) caeug.net WITH THE GUEST'S E-MAIL ADDRESS BY 10/21/21 AT 5 PM.

Members and guests will receive an e-mail with instructions for the video conference on Thursday evening prior to the Saturday morning meeting.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: PC, MAC, TABLET, or SMART PHONE to hear and see presentation. OPTIONAL: Microphone to ask questions. Web camera to be seen.

For the purposes of this meeting, Zoom will be used via your web browser. To get the full benefit of the meeting, the device (desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone) which will be used to connect to the meeting should have a microphone, camera, and speakers to take full advantage of the ZOOM product. ZOOM will work properly without; a camera (we will not be able to see you, but you will see the meeting), a microphone (we will not be able to hear you, but you will hear the meeting), speakers (you will not be able to hear the meeting but can still see it). A telephone may also be used, audio only, the number will be provided in the e-mail. You do not need to have ZOOM software on your device nor do you have to have a ZOOM account; simply click on the provided link (see the e-mail on late Thursday 09/23). A few messages may go by, run the ZOOM launcher, and you will be presented (be patient) with a dialog box displaying your camera's picture. Click the appropriate "Join" button and you will be placed in the "Waiting Room" prior to being admitted to the meeting.

If this will be your first time using ZOOM, Youtube.com has many tutorials for first time users. One I found particularly useful is at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9isp3qPeQ0E&t=0m41s

If you have questions regarding equipment, procedures, or want to practice, please send an email to caeug (at) caeug.net; be sure to include your phone number. Members of the Board are available to call you on the telephone to support your use of ZOOM.

CAEUG Zoom Meeting Time: October 23rd, 2021 10:15 AM - The virtual meeting room will open at 10:00 for conversation.

Upcoming events
