Editorial June 2021

Hugh Macdonald

Welcome to the June 2021 edition of PC Update.

As Melbourne has once again found itself in Covid lockdown, there is not a lot to report this month from a club perspective. The Monthly Meeting transitioned back to an online format and was a lively discussion with David Stonier-Gibson, Kirsten Ellis and Nathan Sherburn which all in attendance thoroughly enjoyed.

From the point of view of the magazine, after last month publishing an article on backing up using some ancient Windows tools, this month I’ve written up an article on the best way to back up for your operating system. All three major operating systems are covered, even Mac OS.

We’ve also got some handy tips on blocking unwanted emails, which apply to the new MelbPC Google Workspace service which you may have been transitioned to by now.

We’ve also got Part 2 of Dave William’s fantastic project to build his own CNC Router. If you read Part 1 last month, make sure you read Part 2.

Some of the usual features are also along this month: Interesting Internet Finds, DOTW Winners, Yammer Highlights and the East SIG Report.

Happy reading!
