The President's Message
by Tony Butka
Now that we have the coffee and donuts campaign promise under control, we're moving right along into having fun with our favorite operating system. At the July meeting, Dave Watson was a hit with his browser tutorial -- I never knew that there were so many browsers available for OS/2! And not just different builds of the same Netscape 4x either, but exciting new products like Sun's Hot Java and Opera, as well as the flavors of Mozilla/Warpzilla. Good job, Dave!
Sadly, our long term program chair, Mark Abramowitz, has decided to 'retire' after years of service (not to mention cramming an 80 hour lifestyle into a 60 hour week), and announced that he will be stepping down at the July meeting. I want to thank Mark on behalf of the Board of Directors and entire club; he's done a great job and provided the group with many super speakers. Mark will continue to help out during the transition period. For right now, the entire Board will act as 'Program Chair,' and there are some exciting ideas being worked on, like Steven Levine's examination of the current state of Odin. Definitely, stay tuned. If anyone is interested in acting as Program Chair, or Raffle Prize Coordinator, please e-mail me and we'll talk.
And as soon as I can find that SCOUG pension plan, Mark will be first to get it...
