HAVE YOUR COMPUTER QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

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 topics 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.

Thinking about Building
or Buying a New Computer?

Presented by Roger Fujii

Given the upcoming announcements of new CPUs and graphics cards, the introduction of DDR5, and the GPU pricing crash, now is a good time to think about building a new computer. Even if you don't think you want to build it yourself, knowing what the parts are will be useful in evaluating if the price is good for what you are getting. The talk will cover the components needed and some pitfalls to be aware of.

RPI grad Roger Fujii is a PATACS technology guru, and has been helping OLLI with knotty tech issues since 2006.



Learn in 30


Lessons Learned From Using Spotify
to DJ My 50th High School Reunion

Presented by Mike Pafford

This ‘Learn in 30’ has Mike Pafford back again, to tell us about his Lessons Learned in using his Spotify Premium Account to provide the Background Music at his recent 50th High School Reunion.Back in February, Mike gave a longer detailed run-down, on how he ‘thought’ he might use Spotify to do this. In this much shorter talk, he’ll let us know what he Really did; what went right; what went wrong; and what he learned from the experience.

Bottom Line: This Really turned out to be an example of, “If I can do it, Anybody can!”

Mike Pafford is a retired systems engineer, having had careers in the Navy and at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. Previously, he presented a fascinating session about a cross-country trip in an electric vehicle.

OPCUG Members Welcome!

PATACS - Arlington,
4th Wednesday, Sept 28th, 7 PM
Zoom Details Will be Sent by Email

Meeting Location: Carlin Hall Community Center,
5711 S. 4th Street, Arlington, VA 22204


Technology & PC Help Desk:
Extended Q&A
Troubleshooting

Do all your electronics, gadgets, computers, phones, tablets, TV sets, networks, earbuds, and software apps/applications work perfectly? Do you never encounter glitches, freezes, failures? Are you always certain what brand and model product to buy? If so, we'd like to hear about your magic touch.

But if you're like the rest of us, none of that is true for you. And so PATACS' first-Wednesday meetings may be just the resource you need for a happier technology life. Just as most PATACS meetings begin with a Q&A session, so does this meeting. But then the meeting continues for nothing but Q&A -- meaning that it's possible to have detailed and in-depth discussions, including real-time research and demonstrations.

Same as all PATACS meetings, these sessions are free and open to the public. So join in, share your questions, problems, and pain -- and perhaps receive answers, solutions, and relief.
