Our discussion group begins before the regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the same meeting room. Ask questions that you may feel take up too much time, are embarrassed to ask, or can't be articulated well during the main meeting. PMUG Answers is led by Jeff Gorman of Creative Computing.

As you meet your fellow members, you will find others with similar interests and those with expertise who can help or suggest avenues towards solutions.

Past meetings address topics such as buying the right printer or modem, what the Internet is and how to connect to it, and using files created with Intel-based PC computers on a Mac.

For more information on the PMUG Answers discussion group, please contact Jeff Gorman (.)
