The OS/2 SIG of the Philadelphia Area Computer Society invites all interested
computer users to attend the September meeting:
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2000 7:00 - 10:00 PM
The Episcopal Academy, 376 N. Latches Lane, Merion, PA
*** SEPTEMBER FEATURE PRESENTATION ***
-- TCP/IP NETWORKING .. DEMYSTIFIED --
At the September 27th meeting, SIG member gurus David Moskowitz and David Gentzler
will present "TCP/IP Networking Demystified"
In last year's networking presentation, David ~David took us on a tour of networking
with NETBIOS. But this time around, they are going to give TCP/IP the same in-depth
exposure. The September meeting will cover everything you need to know about TCP/IP
from installation to setup of a TCP/IP network in your home or office.
They will cover the difference between the TCP/IP stacks and the applications,
how to print, share files, etc, assigning names to computers, dial-up versus broadband,
If you access the Internet or want to know how to set up a network without NETBIOS
or whatever else, this is definitely a not-to-be-missed session.
Other agenda items include SIG business matters, Warpstock 2000 report, OS/2
news, new software releases, Q&A session ~raffles. An OS/2 system will be on
hand for demos of OS/2, Java, Internet, etc. as time permits. Free light refreshments
will be available.
Mark the date and time: Wednesday, September 27th, at 7:00pm, to hear about all
the new and exciting developments, or if you have questions about OS/2 Warp and
Java. OS/2 SIG meetings are open and free for OS/2 users, their guests and all others
interested in learning about OS/2 and associated Java technology.

There's a new OS/2 Help Desk day for Southern California! We've expanded into
better facilities and chosen a convenient weekend day so everyone can attend these
expert-hosted OS/2 days.
The Southern California OS/2 User Group, in conjunction with the North Orange
County Computer Club's OS/2 Special Interest Group, invites _you_ to bring your
hardware and your questions to this fully-staffed OS/2 Help Desk on the first Sunday
of every month.
OS/2 Help Desk starts at 2 p.m. and lasts for two hours "or until everybody
leaves". Individual attention is available to fix your machine, be it laptop,
tower or server. Notable on-staff experts include Terry Warren, NOCCC President
and OS/2 SIG leader; Steve Schiffman, President of SCOUG; Steven Levine, writer
of the "OS/2 Mr. Know-It-All" column; Tony Butka, who pens "OS/2
Ink"; and Webfoot, The Duck.
The next Help Desk is Sunday, October 1 at 2 p.m. The site is Chapman University
in the city of Orange (east of Interstate 5 and north of Route 22). That's near
Disneyland and it's where Warp Expo West was held in August 1999.
For directions visit http://www.scoug.com/warpexpowest/travel.html
or visit http://www.mapquest.com/ and enter
the address 400 N. Center Street, Orange, CA. You can park in any of the University
lots for free since it's Sunday, but if you park on the street watch the signs carefully
since they do issue parking tickets.
Come to Hashinger Hall Science Building's room 203. It's on the second floor
and there's an elevator to bring up your equipment.
This OS/2 Help Desk replaces SCOUG's Monday evening OS/2 Help Desk in Anaheim.
Print this page and print the maps. Put them on your dashboard. Come to the new
OS/2 Help Desk!
JOIN us for a complete review of all the command line tips-n-techniques that
you ever wanted to know about OS/2, but were afraid to ask
Let's BACKUP a little and review some of the helpful things we've learned from
our years of OS/2 experience. Do you know how many characters you can use in a command
line? You'll find out, if you attend. Are there any undocumented DIR parameters
that you may FIND helpful? You'll find out, if you attend.
Take PAUSE to learn MORE! This is the PATH to higher learning. This is the SORT
of information that can help you RECOVER from a bad TIME. Mark the DATE on your
calendar to VERIFY your ability to attend!
See you there. See our web page for directions.

How to get to Grace Baptist Church:
The Grace Baptist Church in Anaheim is at 2528 W. La Palma Ave. It is on the
south side of the street (about 200 ft. E of Magnolia). It's a 2-story office building
close to La Palma Ave. with the address of 2528 up near the roof. (It's between
2 large apartment complexes and can be easily missed). Look for the SCOUG banner
and/or a sign with the words "New Hope Christian Center". Turn in (south)
there. Park in the front lot. For the general meeting, go up the stairs in the middle
of the building along the parking-lot side. For the Help Desk ~Networking SIG, go
in at the middle on the ground floor and down the hall to your right.
Freeway exits: (subject to change due to freeway construction on I-5 and the 91 freeways):
1) North I-5 (from central/south Orange County): take the Brookhurst/La Palma exit and turn left (going west over I-5). The church will be on your left side.
2) South I-5 (from Los Angeles): take the Beach Blvd. exit and turn right going south. Turn left on La Palma Ave; after you pass Magnolia, the church will be on your right side.
3) West 91 freeway (from the Inland Empire, etc): take the Magnolia exit and turn left going south. Turn left on La Palma Ave; the church will be on your right side.
