Meeting photos

October’s General Meeting will feature Amy Wooden, the Chief Operating Officer of macUpgrades, the famed Apple dealer in Bethesda. Amy has years and years of experience with Macs and Apple products, and she will be talking to us on a variety of topics based on submissions by Pi members beforehand. Did we get yours? Send questions in advance to office@wap.org.

Topics suggested so far include the care and feeding of laptop batteries, transferring photos in iPhoto from one Mac to another, file management, including searching for lost files, and lots more. Submit your questions prior to the meeting or just come and raise your hand. Amy should prove to be another great source of answers to all of your questions on using the Mac and other Apple products.

This meeting will take place at our usual watering hole — Room 178 of Enterprise Hall — on the GMU campus in Fairfax, VA. Go to the Pi Web site link below for details and any updates.

Check back closer to the meeting date for any updates or changes to the meeting.
