What do we do?
We meet once
a month at the Richardson Civic Center and exchange information on our Macintosh
computers and other pieces of hardware and software.
We try to help each other solve problems.
We explore the bleeding edge of technological improvements (or blunders).
We support an email and conferencing system (ACD Online) that lets us ... meet any time of day or night to again discuss the Mac, Internet, Hard Drives, Printers, Modems, and.. Politics, Dogs, Cats, Soaps, Sports, hobbies, etc.. and ... use Onenet and the Internet to send email around the world, and ... participate in several hundred other conferences and newsgroups. We maintain ACD Online as a family oriented system.
We have fun..lots of it. We Network. And we cry... when our hard drives fail. We rejoice when a fellow member tells us how to reformat it or recover the files or directs us to a reliable repair place.
We meet socially at various formal and informal gatherings.
We share the latest and greatest public domain software (well checked for viruses). LOTS of it.
in support of the Apple Corps., ie, we volunteer a little time each month
in helping keep this organization running.
We benefit from having 200 experts only a phone call away.
We contibute a small support donation of $30 a year or more, which we can deduct off our taxes (the ACD is a non-profit).
We share our knowledge with other members via an internet publication called the AppleGRAM, a nationally awarded publication.
We let family members join the group and use the BBS for only $10 a year.
We offer specials to members., i.e., great discounts on software and hardware.
We let our members win software and other goodies almost every meeting.
We provide our members an email address on the Internet!
We are known as one of the premier User Groups in the Nation, and we are the oldest continually operating Apple User Group.
We are the largest Mac User Group in the DFW metroplex.
We do not charge for access to our monthly meetings. Non-members are welcome.
We hope you will visit us!
