TUE SEPT 17TH @ 7PM

Now that we know the history of Google it is time to improve our searching.

Barely a day goes by that I don’t have a reason to search for something. Usually, I get what I want with Google but there are times when I get everything but. Yes, there are many other search engines but most of us “Google.” Is there a better way than how I approach this? I expect to get that help with this upcoming presentation.

Google is the world’s most popular search engine, so if you don’t know how to use it, you may be feeling left out. Whether you want to know how to do a basic Google search, or you want to improve your Googling skills, you’ve come to the right place.

Google Search’s learning curve is an odd one. You use it every day, but still all you know is how to search. But the search engine has plenty of tricks up its sleeve. Tonight you will become aware of some of these useful tricks.

Hewie Popluck, our guest speaker, is a former APCUG Vice President currently serving as the Windows SIG leader and APCUG Rep for the Central Florida Computer Society. Hewie attended his first user group meeting armed with a yellow legal pad and 21 questions. Although only four of them got addressed at that first meeting, he knew that computer user groups were an invaluable source of help, information and friendship. That was in 1982 at an Osborne User group. (Note: TUGNET began as an Osborne User Group) He has been active in the user group movement ever since. He likes to help computer users and give back much of what he has learned over the years.

Tonight we are privileged to hear one of his most popular presentations. I hope you will plan to attend.

Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army.

 

On his first day in basic training the Army issued him a comb.  That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair.

On his second day the Army issued Herman a toothbrush.  That afternoon the Army dentist yanked three of his teeth.

On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap.  The Army has been looking for Herman for 51 years.
