Meets on First Tuesday from 7 PM to 9 PM at the North Bellevue Community / Senior Center, 4063 148th Ave. NE, Bellevue, WA, in the Pool Hall (it's where the Computer Lab used to be and gives us access to monitors & other testing items) (see maps).
This Computer Support SIG goes the extra step to help you set-up and/or repair your personal computer. If you are a beginner and want help installing new hardware in your computer or even if you need help installing new software, just bring your system in and we will help you get your computer up and running.
While KEGS’ volunteers are willing to help you with any hardware and/or software problems they are limited by the two hour time frame and we have to provide service on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are a couple of other requirements on your part. Before you pack your computer into the back of your car and bring it down to the North Bellevue Community /Senior Center you must understand some basics that have to be complied with:

The Seattle Internet User Group starts with an informal question and answer session.

This could include a discussion of SPAM, email, e-commerce or what have you.

This fun starts around 9:15 PM and continues until the group decides to go home. Just ask at the general meeting for directions. Sally Ann Mowrey is currently administering this SIG.

Those of you who can come in early to our KEGS General meeting (6:00 PM) can also participate in our KEGS Technology Corner.
The KEGS Technology Corner
The KEGS Technology Corner is for all levels of computer savvy. The format is in the context of a conversation. The moderator is a well schooled troubleshooter who entertains all types of questions from the audience on installation, configuration, application and functionality. He encourages the audience to participate if there are attendees familiar with the question. It is a "cooperate to graduate" session with everyone leaving with information they can use in their day to day computer experience.

Meets on second Wednesday from 7 PM to 9 PM at the North Bellevue Community Center, 4063 148th Ave. NE, Bellevue, WA, in Conference room D (see maps).
This SIG discusses most aspects of the computer industry from Laptops, Desktops, to Tablets. We primarily discuss equipment that uses either Windows or Android operating systems. We encourage all skill levels of computer enthusiasts from beginners to the very knowledgeable to attend. At the present time about twenty members attend each meeting. We try to answer members' problems and questions with a Q and A portion of the meeting. The main presentation at each meeting is usually something that should interest all attendees. This is a very social group and we all have a lot of fun in learning.

The Digital Imaging SIG explores the use of computers and technology in producing and manipulating digital photographs and images. Many members want to get out of the darkroom and on to the computer to process their images. We discuss picture taking, scanning, editing and printing techniques that produce the best digital images. Also, talk about the hardware and software needed to do Digital Imaging.
