AUGUST 2005 – "THE SILICON KID"
This month we will have The Silicon Kid giving a sneak preview
of his new web site, which is due for launch later this year. The
PCUG has agreed to provide the Silicon Kid with the web space for
his new interactive 'problems solved' database, as we feel that
it is a definite win-win situation. The Kid gets the solid and reliable
TIP services, and the PCUG gets what should become a large, dynamic
problem solving resource. This is in line with our motto of “Users
In his Canberra Times column over the last 7 years the Silicon
Kid has answered countless readers’ computer problems. His
web site will build on the success of the column, by providing a
fully searchable archive of all the questions the Kid has answered
in his column. This resource will allow visitors to research many
of the topics answered over those years, and to find links to other
sites with answers.
Following The Silicon Kid’s talk, the meeting will become
a forum for everyone to participate in solving computer problems.
Bring along your computer problems and experiences for an exchange
of knowledge, and then stay around for coffee afterwards. Enquiries
