YAHOO Group Sites
How to take full advantage of Group sites, such as Yahoo.
There are several versions of this type of site but Yahoo is the one that BUG uses.
Paul will show us how they can be useful for sharing and coordinating information between people, as an alternative to email.
Paul will also show us how to create a new site for personal use with family and friends, how to upload and dowload pictures and files and how to use the calendar functions.

Paul Mather is our BUG President and Webmaster. He has also designed and managed several other web sites for the Ontario Government, Scouts Canada, and the Honey Harbour Historical Society.

If time permits, Dave Jackson, our Vice President, will demonstrate the new BUG Basics CD.
