Seniors Move with the Times

Senior computer users welcomed back popular guest speaker Lei Parker to the last EuroSCUG meeting. Lei, editor of the new free shire-wide online newspaper, The Beagle, presented an overview of The Beagle, guiding members through the history of the paper, how and why it came to be, and where it sits in our day to day news feed. As Lei pointed out, "It is inevitable that newspapers (in paper form) as we know them will disappear as more and more information goes online”. People now have immediate access to news (global, national and local) using computers, tablets and mobiles. Lei emphasised the importance of the Your Town pages, which provide each community with local news, and gives them a voice. He said "It was encouraging to see all the hands go up when I asked how many members read the Beagle, and it was equally encouraging to see a solid show of hands for those who still buy the weekly newspapers, supporting our local journalists." At the next meeting, at Moruya Golf Club at 10am on Wednesday 3 rd May, photographer Heath Barkley will demonstrate using software Photoshop Elements 12 to edit photos before printing them. After morning tea, small groups will cover such topics as repairing old photos, and Office, and there will be beginner’s sessions on both tablets and Windows. A Help Desk will also be available. EuroSCUG meets at 10am on the first Wednesday of the month at Moruya Golf Club, and local area groups meet regularly in Batemans Bay, Moruya, Tuross Head and Narooma. Monthly tablet groups (iPad and Android) are also held. For more information visit our website at, or phone 0431 809 073
