Once you learn that you can set a browser's default page to something other than the original setting, whole worlds open up, including the personal landing page. A personal landing page is a web page where you can store the stuff that matters most to you: commonly used sites you like to visit, weather and traffic reports, stock market reports, tracks of asteroids that may destroy all life on Earth -- that sort of thing.
For some time, Google's iGoogle service allowed anyone to create a customizable landing page, but Google is retiring this service. Never fear: there are other options out there, and the February meeting will show you how to make the World Wide Web more narrowly focused on what matters to you.
Once again, we will attempt to stream it over the Internet: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wap-general-meeting.
The meeting will be held in Enterprise Hall, Room 178.
Address: 4400 University Dr., Fairfax, VA (near Rte 123 and Braddock Road). Directions and Map: http://www.gmu.edu/welcome/Directions-to-GMU.html
Here is a campus map with annotations (PDF, 2.8 MB). Interactive map of campus: http://eagle.gmu.edu/map/fairfax.php
The Sandy Creek Parking Garage is fee-based facility. It is more convenient and closer to the meeting location. The Pi will subsidize the facility's parking fee by providing vouchers for donation request of $4.00.
If using the parking garage, park in Visitor's area; i.e., the lowest level. Take the elevator to the third floor (Campus Level), and exit along the sky bridge.
After the meeting, exit the garage using the exits marked for Validated Tickets. Your parking ticket goes in first. Then the validation ticket goes in next. If you have any problems, there is a speaker box for calling the parking lot attendant at the checkout point.
Free parking in Lot A (see map below)
Park as close to Mattaponi River Lane as possible, then walk north along that road toward the main campus buildings. The sidewalk route takes you directly to the side of Enterprise Hall, on your left. The meeting room is located on the second floor, accessible via outside stairs or via an elevator on your right as soon as you enter the building through the doors behind the outside stairs. We will endeavor to have signs posted to help guide you to the right location. It is at least a five-minute walk from Lot A and up a slight incline. We will be using a golf cart along the route, to offer rides to those who want or need a lift.
Handicapped Parking: There are three handicap parking spaces next to Enterprise Hall that can be used by members, on a first come first served basis. Have your Handicap Sticker showing on the dashboard or on the rear-view mirror.
