E-mail Group Moderator:  Skip Ross

The number of Mac users in Area 16 has, for some years, been insufficient to support regular meetings. As an alternative, we have established a state-wide e-mail group for Mac users and enthusiasts. All SIR members in any branch are welcome.

If you are a Mac user, think you may want to become one, or are just interested in happenings in the Mac world, please join us. You are most welcome.


Since about 2003, Jim Dinkey has served as ongoing Chairman of SIR Area 16 Windows CompuSIR. Jim also serves in a leadership role at SPAUG (Stanford-Palo Alto Users Group for PC). He has been able to leverage this dual leadership to obtain speakers who will speak to both groups - CompuSIR on Wednesday afternoon, SPAUG the same evening.

The SPAUG website provides the program and other information of interest to CompuSIR members.
