Prez Says for April 2023

Welcome to April, the month of tulips and Easter!  April showers bring May flowers so goes the old saying; however, some of our members may be heading to the Skagit Valley to photograph the daffodils and tulips this month.  I wish you and your family a pleasant Easter weekend. 

On April 4th at the North Bellevue Community Center, our General Meeting program will be "Chat GPT" presented by Bob Gostischa and Ron Brown.  This will be a hybrid meeting (in-person and Zoom combined).   Using Chat GPT can provide several benefits that can make daily life easier, more enjoyable, and more productive.  Chat GPT is an advanced artificial intelligence language model that can engage in human-like conversation, provide information and insights, and perform various tasks with ease.  Furthermore, Chat GPT can be a valuable tool for those who are interested in learning new things or pursuing hobbies.  With Chat GPT, you can access a wide range of educational resources, including online courses, podcasts, and books.  Chat GPT can also provide recommendations for movies, TV shows, and music based on personal preferences, helping you discover new and exciting content.  Please join us at 7:00 PM for this informative program.

Do you have questions about one of your computer devices or software?   Join Leader Andy Peck at 6:00 PM on April 4th for our Tech Corner, a hybrid meeting.

If you want to learn more about Linux, visit Steve Herber at our Linux Special Interest Group hybrid meeting starting at 6:30 PM on April 11th.

Don't forget to drop in on Sally Ann at our Zoom Digital Imaging Special Interest Group Meeting at 7:00 PM on April 25th.  April's Theme is Favorite Trips.

Our next Auction will be in June.  We request that you bring your donations to an in-person meeting or have them picked up by May 1st.  Please contribute only working computers, flat panel monitors, and peripherals.  No motherboards or components.  Most of us are no longer building computers.  Any software must work with Windows 10 and up.
