FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OS/2 Open House Celebration
Fifth Anniversary of the Southern California OS/2 User Group
Saturday, September 19, 1998
An OS/2 Open House Celebration of the fifth anniversary of the Southern California
OS/2 User Group (SCOUG) will be held on Saturday, September 19, 1998. The event
is being held at the IBM facilities in Costa Mesa from 10 a.m.(*) to 3:30 p.m.
"Last year our Open House was a huge success," said Carla Hanzlik,
editor of OS/2 For You, the monthly SCOUG publication. "We had almost 200 OS/2
users in attendance for our presentations, round-table discussions and product demonstrations.
We also gave away a lot of door prizes, and even served everybody a free lunch!"
This year's Open House is slated to be just as action packed.
"We've got several lecture rooms that will be running simultaneously,"
said event chairman Rollin White. "We're covering networking, programming,
the Internet, video cards, things that OS/2 users want to hear about. In all, there
will be 16 presentations, all on OS/2."
"We have Dr. Virginia Hetrick scheduled with an entire series on setting
up a web site. Anyone who wants to set up their own web server should attend this
"We've also got Don Baker, the man behind the Paper, Paper, Paper story,
who will show exactly how to get superb, professional results out of inexpensive
color inkjet printers."
"And we'll take a look ahead with 'Coming Attractions: Speculations (and
Some Facts) About the Future of OS/2', a special presentation by the ever-popular
Randell Flint from Sundial Systems."
In addition to the lecture hall presentations, the main hall will be filled with
demonstrations of OS/2 products. Vendors such as Sundial Systems and Perfect Niche
Software will be showing their products while other areas will have demonstrations
such as scanning and printing with OS/2, financial trading with OS/2, OS/2 games
and exhibits, plus some new software releases that will be previewed for the first
"And we've got one other lecture hall that's been reserved for round-table
discussions on specific OS/2 topics," added Rollin.
The presentations, exhibits and games go all day, with breaks for the free lunch
and the Door Prize Bonanza.
This is _the_ OS/2 event of the year for Southern California. Every OS/2 user
within driving distance should attend.
