Local computer group launches website

Rowan Computer User Group (RCUG), an all-volunteer group, recently launched its website and Yahoo Group site to help with problems related to new computers and devices.
RCUG provides a forum for residents of Rowan County to connect with other computer users who share an interest in the ownership, operation, education and application of their personal computers and the accessories that plug into them.
ěWith the recent releases of new computers, operating systems, gadgets and software releases, it can become overwhelming from too much information,î says group founder Steve Ziegelhofer. ěThereís bound to be questions or new discoveries that can be shared with other members that are struggling or would like to get the most out of what they have.î
In addition to online Question-and-answers, discussions and how-tos on their Yahoo Group Site, there are plans to also add a buy, sell or recycle component.
Offline, RCUG will offer meetings twice monthly beginning Jan. 19. Noting that this new group is not affiliated with the Rowan Public Library, ětopical meetings are currently scheduled to alternate between the libraries in Salisbury and China Grove. We hope to offer additional locations slightly north, east and west of Salisbury to make it convenient for our members who are located in those areas to attend, if cost-free space can be found,î says Terry Echeverria, a co-leader of the group.
RCUG is free to join, free to participate. Interested computer users can access the groupís Yahoo Group site through www.rowancomputerusergroup.org.
The first meeting, ěIíve Got a New Computer So Now What?î will be Wednesday, 6:45 p.m., South Branch of Rowan Public Library, 920 Kimball Road, China Grove. Call 704-267-1371 for more information.
