Windows file index and search capabilities are mostly adequate. When they're not, FileLocator Pro (FLP) comes to the rescue. From website: Navigate and understand your data! Whether it's a line of source code, an entry in a log file, a legal brief, or even just a Christmas letter to your family, FileLocator Pro helps you find things fast. Its unique features make it possible to dig out information in even the most obscure file formats.

Arlington Meeting Info & Maps       


The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in subjects addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And – there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

  Build a WordPress Blog

WordPress Website
WordPress Websites for All

Presented by
Gary Vaughan

WordPress is a popular, powerful and user-friendly open source software that accounts for some 25% of all sites on the Web, and can be an excellent tool in building an individual, non-profit or small business website.

In this presentation, Gary will first explain WordPress's (WP) breadth as both a blog and content management system, explore various WP hosting options, and show how WP compares or connects with other site builder or social media tools. He will then discuss the details of planning website content and design, drawing on such WP components as Themes, Plugins and Widgets, and tapping a wealth of support resources on the Web and at WP events around the DC area. The talk will also include a live WP demo, models of WP sites, and WP resource handouts. After the class, Gary offers to help (for a limited time) any interested attendees get started with their own free Wordpress.Com site.

Gary Vaughan is a Senior IT and Knowledge Management Advisor (Buchanan & Edwards) with the Office of eDiplomacy at the State Department.

Over the last 12 years he has provided user support on various internal knowledge management tools such as a Department-wide wiki, SharePoint, and Search@State, and with a focus on internal WordPress-based "Communities@State" blogs since 2014. In a prior career, Gary was a Project Officer (Foreign Service) with the U.S. Agency for International Development, with various tours in Washington D.C., Egypt and Latin America from 1979 to 2006. He has an MBA from the George Washington University, an MS in Computer Science Administration from UMUC, and is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).
