Prez Says for November 2023

The time for witches and pumpkins has passed.  Welcome to November, dark skies, frost, Black Friday, Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving!   I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

On November 7th at 7:00 PM at the North Bellevue Community Center, our General Meeting program will be "Our Need to Rethink Fraud in America" presented by AARP.  This will be a hybrid meeting (in-person meeting and Zoom meeting combined).  Fraud has reached a crisis level in the US.  Millions of victims are losing billions of dollars every year to the hands of transnational criminal enterprises.  As a society, our tendency to blame the fraud victim for experiencing the crime has led to us deprioritizing it.  In this webinar, AARP will discuss the nature of victim-blaming in our country and how changing this narrative could lead to a fundamental transformation in how we combat fraud.  Please join us for this informative meeting.

Do you have questions about one of your computer devices or software?   Join Leader Andy Peck at 6:00 PM on November 7th for our Technology 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 November 14th. The Linux Group also has a build-your-own server project Zoom meeting at 6:30 PM on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.

Don't forget to drop in on Sally Ann at our Zoom Digital Imaging Special Interest Group Meeting at 7:00 PM on November 28th.  November’s Theme is Halloween and Thanksgiving.

To keep up with technology, visit to learn about their Monday morning meetings (9:00 AM PT), their Newsletter, and their Facebook page.
