Happy Birthday HMAUS-L – Local Talk 2015.12.27

Article by Doug Frick Twenty years ago today, the HMAUS-L mailing list began operation! We had an active HMAUS Telecomm SIG, and the focus was gradually moving from BBSs/AOL/Compuserve to the Internet. I was looking for a good place to post HMAUS announcements on-line.

Local Talk 2015.11.18 – Celebrating Earth’s Greatest Treasure

Have you ever thought about the people you meet in life? Those you meet from time to time at any of our HMAUS meetings, for example? This was the question posed by Terrence Young at a recent idea session. He expressed how being a member of HMAUS rewarded him with the opportunity to get to know and learn about so many interesting people—his fellow HMAUS members. Thus was born KnowMemberfest, which will be held this Saturday, from 9:00 to 1:00 at Dave & Busters at…
