SCOUG OS/2 For You - April 1999
New SCOUG CD Compliments Disk of the Month
Starting this month, SCOUG will have a special CD available for sale at the membership desk. The CD will contain the many programs that have been requested by members, but can't fit on even several disks of the month(s).
Some of the contents include:
- OS/2 FixPaks
- Updates to Netscape
- Java Runtime for OS/2
- Recent contributions to Hobbes FTP site
- Updates/new device drivers
- Contributions from SCOUG SIGs
- Additional useful shareware and freeware
These are just some of the preliminary ideas for the CD. If you have requests for particular items or other ideas of things to include, please email them to Rollin or leave them at the Membership Desk when you come to the Saturday general meeting.
The current plan is to have new copies of the CD each and every month. However, much of the content will remain constant from month-to-month. We anticipate about 10% of the CD's content changing each month, and we will always attempt to have the latest files, drivers, etc. on the CD. So, you may not want a new CD every month, but getting one every 3-4 months is a good idea.
Given the much larger capacity of the CD, it could well replace the Disk of the Month. The cost for all this extra wonderful stuff? A mere $5. That's right- just $5. Compared to the Disk of the Month, that's 185 times the value for your dollars.
