The PDF versions of the Spring and Fall 2014 editions of the TPUG newsletter are now available in the Club Archives.
On Sunday September 7, 2014 TPUG was invited to participate in a film shoot for a mini documentary style promo for Starbucks. They contacted us and wanted us to recreate our Occupy Starbucks event from a couple of years ago. The notice was short, but we managed to gather quite a few members and spent the afternoon at the Starbucks near Kipling subway station with the film crew.
The resulting film(s) can be viewed here: http://www.YouTube.com/Starbucks
John Easton took a bunch of photos (more…)
The next TPUG meeting will be on Thursday, October 16th, 2014 @ 7:30 PM. This month we will have reports from the CommVex expo in Las Vegas and the ECCC expo in Chicago, with some behind-the scenes stories from the recent Starbucks ad campaign featuring TPUG!
The next TPUG meeting will be on Thursday, September 18th, 2014 @ 7:30 PM. Hope you enjoyed your summer! This month’s topic is getting online with your Commodore PET and the Commodore Flyer Internet Modem.
