By Troy Segler, VP of Programs
Experience More. Windows XP
Have More Fun. Learn and Explore. Keep in Touch. Be More Productive.
Join the Computer Club of Oklahoma City and Microsoft® on Thursday, February 17th at 7:00 PM for our monthly general meeting, and discover how to experience more of the photos, music, television, movies, and games you want in your home with Microsoft® Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005, and how to keep your pc safe and secure with Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2. If you are a participant in the weekly SeniorNet User Group (SNUG), this program will be presented the morning of February 17 for those in attendance.
Our speaker will be Aaron Coldiron, Manager of the Mindspring offerings from Microsoft. Aaron is now touring many states and visiting with user groups on a demanding schedule. We are fortunate that he has agreed to visit us at Oklahoma City. Aaron Coldiron is the Mindshare program manager for Microsoft. Mindshare is a user group support program that strives to equip user group leaders with the latest in technology, news and trends. In addition to Mindshare, Aaron is responsible for consumer influencer strategy at Microsoft and Microsoft community scorecards. Before working with Microsoft, Aaron spent time with Disney and a small consulting firm. Aaron has an MBA from the University of California, Irvine.
Microsoft® Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005 is making it easier to experience the broad range of digital entertainment including TV, music, photos and games. When connected to a home network, Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 can become a hub for entertainment, providing you with access through connected devices in any room in the home, or through portable players on the go. Best of all, the experience is enabled by Windows, making it easier and more familiar.
Come join us and learn how you can have more fun, learn and explore, keep in touch, and be more productive ¬— all with your pc. Plus, we’ll talk about how you can keep your pc safe and secure with Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2. There has been a great deal of discussion at SNUG regarding the necessity and advisability of installing WIN XP2. Aaron will respond to any questions regarding the safety and security afforded by this upgrade, along with enlightening us with recommended settings to optimize its functionality on our computers.
Invite your friends and associates to join with you by participating in this meeting. We are fortunate to have engaged Aaron for this visit. As encouragement for other companies to support us in the use of their software and hardware through live presentations, a good turnout is always desirable.
We meet in Suite 201 of the Centre 3000 Building located at 3000 United Founders Boulevard. This is approximately 3 blocks east of the United Founders Tower.
See you on the 17th of February. Troy Segler, Program Vice President
