Well I really can’t quite believe that it is SEVEN months this week since I first posted the news of the Unlock the Past Victoria Expo to be held in Geelong on Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd September! And now it’s only a week and a half away.
Already we have 74 exhibitors and lots of people registered. Don’t forget that if you register before 30th August you get into the Expo for FREE! And don’t forget to book for any of the sessions you want to attend to ensure you don’t miss out. There are some free sessions with others at $5 each.
I really hope to see lots of you there.
And just to share something funny with you … this afternoon I was testing some computer equipment we’ll have on the Geelong & District stand so we can do lots of lookups of databases etc. I had previously used my Netbook and USB dongle for Internet connection. Unfortunately the Netbook has a rather insignificant display card and when a larger screen is attached for people to view it looks a tad … well … AWFUL!
The screen looks great with my Notebook but I had never used my USB dongle on it. So, there I was trying to get my Internet connection working on the Notebook computer. You see, where I live in Ocean Grove, we’re in a shadow and sometimes struggle to get digital TV reception, let alone a wireless Internet connection. If you can picture me standing on tippy-toes on a chair on the verandah AND holding my Notebook as high as I could while still reaching the touch-pad and keyboard to try to get a connection … well I nearly fell off the chair laughing – it looked pretty silly and obviously my neighbours thought the same.
The good news – it works!
See you there … Susie Z
I’ll be there! And will definitely be chatting with you regarding those databases and the surname Plumridge!
