  • HTPC/Home Automation - 8:00 am
    Home Theater (or Media) PCs and Home Automation come in an endless range of capability, complexity and price.   Come join us as we cover this new & exciting area.

    Home Automation covers everything from setting your thermostat to having your refrigerator order milk. Come join SIG Leader Bill Parker as we set our direction for this SIG. 

  • Microsoft Excel - 8:00 am
    Excel will be looking at a macro that simulates the Calendar control using only basic VBA elements. I worked on this due to the change that occurred when Excel 2007 released, and the earlier Calendar control no longer worked.  We’ll look at what you can do to compensate when you really need it to function in older code.
