Winter is Here Don t
Yes winter is here. ¥hen you heat the house
to keep the winter breezes out the air gets very
dry. You don't know what to do because its too
cold outside so you go over to the computer
thinking you will entertain yourself or write a
letter. You reach back to turn on the computer
and feel a slight shock. There it goes the 6526
maybe more. How many times I have heard of
this happening. Well it doesn't have to happen
to you this winter. Two tips are cover the joy
stick ports with tape (electrical) or keep joy '
sticks attached. Secondly and best is take a
twelve ounce spray bottle with a cap full of
fabric softener and 12 ounces of water mixed
well and spray your carpets., rugs and area
around the computer where you walk or sit.
Once a week should prevent any static
electricity around your computer. Don't blow it.
It could be costly.

on improving your club, please jot them down
and share them with us at the meetings, upload
them to the bbs, or just hand them to the editor to
print in the news letter. This is the only way

membership and help our club mature

misleading. Take 5 0* Clock Computers. This is a

The "Windows" Desktop Alternative is here. I
sent off for information that I will have for the
next meeting on the imported windows
application for geos. The ad looks very
impressive, and I just had to order it to use with
my geos applications being you can use the REIT
and up to three other drives. This will make
things much simpler to do. I don't expect to have
my copy of the program that soon but I will
pass the information on to you. If you are
