Aug 18, 1997 - At the VOICE bimonthly board meeting the following issues were addressed:
1) It was decided by unanimous vote that Judy be asked to pursue Credit Card registrations
with BMT Micro. Peter can provide any info needed for the bank account, etc....
2) Also, it was decided that the online membership form should allow for entry of
all info there (except CC info which will be through BMT via a link) if desired,
or the member may request that a form be emailed to them for completion.
3) The form if filled out online, will be sent to Peter via email. If it is requested
that they receive an email copy of the membership form to fill out, Peter will forward
the form to them once confirmation from BMT of payment is received.
4) The three methods of payment officially accepted are Credit Card, Check, and
International Money Order. Cash will not be refused, but will not be officially
endorsed in anyway.
5) Pankaj will need to update the bylaws with the change in membership to reflect
that it is valid for 12 months, and will not end on the first of Jan. The three
methods of payment should be mentioned.
6) The questions to IBM that VOICE members have submitted have been forwarded to
the appropriate parties (email@example.com) and Mark (for possible inclusion
in the newsletter)
7) Mark suggested that Judy (in her official position as liaison) sign up for an
IBM Birthday Party for the possible addition of some door prizes.

Aug 15, 1997 - Is Netscape Navigator for OS/2 starting to run sluggish? Try going into Options->Network Preferences-> cache tab and select the buttons to clear both the memory and disk cache. Then close down NS/2 and restart it. Should be considerably faster.
