Welcome to WAUC

 
 

The Wisconsin All-computer Users Club is for computer users of every level of expertise, from novice to expert. Our computer user group supports a variety of computer platforms: Windows, Mac, and Linux.

There is a monthly General Meeting on the first Thursday of the month, and several SIGs (Special Interest Group) meetings during the month. See the Events section for more details. Guests are welcome at the meetings if you want to see what the club is all about before joining.

The yearly dues are $25; if you join after June 1st the dues are $12.50. Becoming a member entitles you to a monthly e-mail PDF newsletter, a monthly e-bulletin, access to our message board called BoardWAUC, and attendance at the General Meetings and SIGs. In August the General Meeting is replaced by a picnic, and in December the General Meeting is replaced by a Christmas Party. We also have a monthly luncheon get-together.

The monthly General Meeting is two hours long: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Coffee and goodies are served, there is a short business meeting, and there is the sale of a club CD-ROM with useful software.  After a short break, there is a drawing of a raffle prize, and then a one hour presentation. To facilitate presentations, the club has its own laptop and projector.  The presentations are about a variety of computer-related subjects. In the past there have been presenters from Microsoft, Smart Computing Magazine, APCUG, the FBI, and local TV and Radio celebrities, just to name a few.

Concurrently with the presentation, All WAUC members qualify to receive WAUC's One-on-One Computer Repair Service. As we have learned all too well, computers often have to be examined to determine exactly what their problems are. What we think might be the problem, might not really be the case. WAUC Treasurer Bill Gierach has been working with personal computers ever since they came along and few can match his experience. If your machine is crashing, running slow, making funny noises, or whatever, let him take a look at it. This is just the first step. Subsequent payment for parts and labor may be necessary, but at least you'll be informed and able to make a better decision. Computer examinations can be carried out at the WAUC Tutorial SIG, second Thursday of the Month, or the Q & A SIG, third Thursday of the month, both at 7:00 PM, Speedway Station, 60th and Layton in Greenfield, at Bill's home, or at your home. To facilitate this service, please first email, call, or speak to Bill to arrange the best time Bill can be reached at wdgierach@yahoo.com or at 414-421-6827." Those who do not bring their computers can still consult and ask questions about personal computing.
