The May CMUG meeting will be
held on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at the East Columbia library.
CMUG's own George Coffin will continue last month's
discussion of TV from the Internet. George
will be talking about the hardware side, and focusing on his experiences with the
Roku set-top box. The Roku and similar other boxes
allow you to stream video from the Internet directly to your TV.
Remember that we still need to be out of the meeting room before
the library closes at 9, so we will be starting promptly at 7:30.
See you on Tuesday at 7:30 pm at the
East Columbia library.
At the March meeting, President John Weske presented on the

The June meeting is tentatively

Thanks to Beth Tribe from the Howard County Library,
