Editorial April 2021

Hugh Macdonald

Pleasingly, life is beginning to return to normal at Melbourne PC User Group. Everytime I walk into the club these days (usually on the weekends) it is a hub of activity, often with members of the Microcontroller Workshop SIG working on their projects. There’s also often Coder Dojo, which sees some of the youngest people in the club attending, and has returned to face to face mode this year.

We also had our first (almost) fully attended monthly meeting in nearly a year earlier this month. You’ll find more details about that in other pages of this magazine, and see a few nice photos from George Skarbek, who also took this month’s cover photo. We even had Lloyd Borrett, the club’s founding member and namesake of the Borrett Room, turn up to the meeting.

This month the magazine deals with password managers, Chromebooks, stopping liquid damage to mobile phones and artificial intelligence. Frank O’Loughlin has also reviewed the ASCCA courses that are offered each month online via Zoom. If you’d like to learn some new computer skills have a look at what is on offer and try one. Also make sure you read Frank’s review.

Enjoy the issue, and see you next month!
