50/50 winner, Betty Lucas, was presented with $24 by Cecelia Vance.

Vice President Jim Kaehler introduced the speaker, nationally known Marie Vesta, currently President of the Pasco County Computer Users Group. She explored “Wireless Network” and “Configure Your Wireless Router” with us, including the risks of using a network that is not encrypted. A variety of security tips was covered. Marie distributed two supporting handouts to aid us in setting up a wireless network.

Free gifts of TampaBay Buccaneers mouse pads were distributed to all.

Marie’s own laptop cover was decorated with a beautiful floral photo that she had taken. The web site for ordering such a “peel-off” photo for the laptop lid is www.skinit.com.

In addition, Marie encouraged all to use the Microsoft Essentials software for virus scanning.

The meeting ended at 2:30 pm and was followed by a Board meeting.

Respectfully submitted,

Donna Gilbert
