SCOUG OS/2 For You - March 1998
Mesa 2 and Elections March 21st
With the release of Mesa 2 version 2.2, this locally developed OS/2 spreadsheet leapfrogs ahead of all the competition. Some of what's new includes customizable menus, toolbars, and accelerator keys; more printing and graphing options; cell attachments; REXX enhancements; and more statistical functions. Mesa 2 is so feature rich, we can't do it justice in this brief description. You'll just have to come to the meeting and see it all for yourself.
The annual elections are another very good reason to come to the March meeting. You'll get to hear what each candidate has to say as they make their final appeals for your vote. (Besides any lobbying they might do before the meeting starts, those running for the Board of Directors have provided written statements for your consideration which you'll find later in this newsletter.)
It's a busy meeting! Along with the elections and Mesa 2 presentation, Treasurer Tom Emerson will let us know how we stand financially. And, we'll still have time for Q&A - if you've got a problem, this is a good time to ask about it. We'll have a raffle, a quick break, and the two Saturday SIGs take over:
General Interest - will show how to use REXX as a scripting language in OS/2 applications.
Programming - will look at the latest results of the win32 api project (assuming that their beta is released in time).
On March 17th (the Tuesday before the SCOUG general meeting) at 7 PM, the Networking SIG meets with the OCIPUG OS/2 SIG at their facilities in Santa Ana. They'll be refining the Java raffle program network environment, updating the Java environment on the servers to the JDK 1.1.4 level, and making sure that the Java Raffle Signin programs continue to function correctly. The Network SIG now meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the OCIPUG Resource Center, 1520 Brookhollow Drive, Suite #38, Santa Ana, in the Brookhollow Office Park located between Dyer Road, Warner Ave, Grand Ave and the 55 Freeway. Contact Steve Schiffman at 714-531-0376 if you need directions.
Later in the month on Monday the 23rd, the Internet SIG will discuss the newest version of the web programming language - HTML 4 - and data warehousing concepts. They'll also be testing new internet products. And, of course, there will be cookies. The date and location might change, so check the web site for details, or contact Dave at email@example.com.
