WarpUK OS/2 users group

Currently I am secretary to WarpUK. We have not met a lot recently but have had several successful meetings at Milton Keynes at these we demonstrate various software and solve problems for each other. We have a quite active mailing list that we all find very useful.

To find out more about why I like OS/2 Warp see my OS/2 Warp & why it's so good page.

Our Meeting at Astrac in Warwick

1 October 1999

Where I gave a presentation on home networks my notes at long last are here in Acrobat format. Thanks to the eventual arrival of my copy of Clearlook (a really excellent word processor) which unlike IBM works can drive the generic postscript printer properly. Apologies for the delay.

So far I have had 9 replies to the meeting feedback form will all those interested in a meeting who havn't used it please fill it in you wil find it at http://www.warp.in-uk.net/meeting.html Although mostly not relevant to out first meeting I hope this will form an ongoing data collection that will be a usefull recorce to the group.

Of the information receved so far 3 say they can bring a computer a further 2 posibly could. We would like to see a very wide range of things demoe'd. What we understand least is IBM and finding compatable hardware with decent software drives seems by far out biggest problem.
