September 18th-7 pm

September Meeting - The topic(s) this time will include:

1. - Printing Basics.  I've had a number of calls when a printer wouldn't print and it was caused by some basic thing anyone could have figured out and fixed.  So I've decided to make a basic printer checklist.  It covers the simple checks any printer owner can do.  No technician required.  We will cover some basic stuff any printer owner can do.  For example:

  1. Load paper in a way that never paper jams the printer
  2. Use cheap copier paper in an inkjet-based printer and still get good quality printouts.
  3. Wake up your printer.
  4. Make the toner work ( laser-based printers ).
  5. Clean a printhead ( inkjet-based printers ).
  6. And more ...

2. - Question and Answer session.  Questions with advanced answers will be saved for last.  This is necessary to keep a basics presentation basic.  This presentation is *NOT* technician training !  It says right on the checklist that you may still need a technician if the problem is not basic.  This does not mean that technicians can't use or won't need this checklist.  It's the same checklist I,ve been using for decades.  I always check for the simple things first.  The simple things have the greatest statistical likelyhood of being the cause of the failure to print.

1. - Giveaways and free stuff:

    A. Free printed copy of the printer checklist for all who show up at the meeting.  The checklist has a short section you can cut out and tape to your printer for a quick check when it doesn't print.  I will have a printer, paper supply, and stapler at the presentation to print copies of the checklist as needed.  I will also have a PDF of the checklist for all who want a digital copy and bring me a flashdrive to put it on.

    B. One Logitech universal remote control for your entertainment system.  This is an expensive programmable universal remote that can turn on and set the inputs for every device in your entertainment system.  By pressing a single button on the remote's touchscreen, you can turn on and setup everything you need to to watch a DVD or blu-ray ( for example ).  Instructions included.  Programming not included.  Slightly used but like new condition.

2. We are asking for all ideas, requests, suggestions, etc. for presentations to give at the main Memphis Applecore Meetings.  These do not have to be for the very next meeting.  We are asking for requests for future meetings too.  Anyone who attends the meetings can contribute.  We only ask that when you request a presentation, that you be at the meeting when said presentation is given.

Green Apples-come before 7pm if you need a little one on one assistance. 06:30 PM ( 1830 ) for those who desire some one on one help with anything related to Apple computers, devices, and Mac OS X.

3rd Quarter 2018 SuperSink DVD's available $10 each. Funds used for club expenses.

MEETING LOCATION: SWTCC's Macon Road Campus, Room: MAB147
