September 2016 Fourth Thursday Meeting

This evening's meeting was rather an adventure, but once again geekiness was triumphant! The projector died, but fortunately the library had an older large-screen TV that 'the man with all the wires' had an appropriate cable for. With a little extra work scrolling, we got through a lot of the songbook!

September 2016 Second Thursday Meeting

We have a new Ukulele Club computer. Don got in on the Kickstarter for a cute little computer that cost $9. You can still get it for $9, but you'll probably spend a little more for some necessary accessories. He got the case (in Store) and the VGA adapter. Then he couldn't get the darn thing to work so he consulted our nerdy friend Stevie. Turns out he should've gotten the USB wall charger because you need a charger that produces at least 2 amps. All the USB chargers we have around the house were only good for about an amp. When we discovered that, he went and bought a 4 amp powered USB hub.

Don was able to hook it up to the nice large multimedia screen at the Library and it worked beautifully. We haven't tested it with our projector yet, but we will before the next meeting at Marble Falls Library. 

Thanks for the lovely meeting, y'all!

Don, Elizabeth, Kunio, Cherie, Virginia
