my thread in soc.genealogy.computingGoogle Groups : soc.genealogy.computing
I have been maintaining a dialogue there, rather than blogging daily as I should.
As well as the online community and the Macintosh User Groups AKA MUGS there are the magazines which are my primary source of information and education about computers for more than 15 years.
Welcome to AMUG About AMUG
The Arizona Macintosh Users Group, Inc. (AMUG) is a non-profit 501-C3 organization incorporated in the State of Arizona and founde in 1984.
Its purpose is to provide education and assistance in the use of Computers and related products to it's members.
I have a collection of older AMUG CDs which they pioneered as a method of distributing software from the 1990ies
my other favourite was the Berkeley Macintosh Users GroupNews, editorials, community information (including special interest groups), software, and links.
The Planet BBS is PlanetMUG's private, Internet accessible online bulletin board system. As the former BBS of BMUG, The Planet BBS has a large community with a wide variety of interests and expertise. It offers dozens of conferences dedicated to a variety of technical issues, social issues, arts, and culture. By posting messages in those conferences, PlanetMUG's members engage in interactive virtual discussion groups, helping each other and sharing information.
The Planet BBS is a moderated environment and we require our members to use their real names. As a result, we have developed one of the most inviting and personal sources of technical support and community available over the Internet.
PlanetMUG uses the First Class communications platform, which provides a refined, cross-platform user interface. The Planet BBS is accessible directly over the World Wide Web or through client software that you can download from this web site. While web access is more convenient for many people, most of our members find the client software faster and easier to use.
If you are having trouble connecting to the Planet BBS, you can check the server status to ensure that we are not experiencing any technical difficulties.you just need fc.planetmug.org and the BBS software and I was logged on to the as a guest
