Bill Geraci shows us everything he knows about lives without wires, Wednesday, September 7, 2016, 6:30 pm at After Words Book, 23 East Illinois, 60611

Hi everyone,

We are very pleased to have Bill Geraci as our featured guest speaker at our Wednesday, September 7, 2016 CAUG meeting. The meeting will start at 6:30 pm and is open to everyone. Bill will be speaking about everything he knows about our lives without wires!

Description: You know those little pie-wedge lines at the top of your screen? At the top of every Apple-produced screen? What do they mean, exactly? How is it that sometimes I have lines but still can't view web pages or get e-mail? And does that relate to why my iOS Device (iPad, iPhone) battery go dead some days and run all day on other days? Come learn everything Bill Geraci knows about telecommunications and our devices: Cellular, WiFi (and it's various names), BlueTooth—the whole thing!

Speaker bio:

Born and raised in Northern California, Bill Geraci moved to Chicago in 1983 where he's been recovering from that event ever since. Within a few years he had dropped out of the Univ. of Chicago as a graduate student, met and married his wife, gone from being a restaurant cook to library supervisor to Computer Guy, tried to help raise three children and become staff at the University of Chicago. In trying to recover from those earlier years, he's gone through being a full-time almost-solely Macintosh consultant to, again, being a staff guy at the U of C. Having given up earlier tries at Classical Greek, Sanskrit, Philosophy and pipe organ performance and maintenance, he's now considered expert presenter on Mac systems, hardware and software (as well as some other stuff). In spite of these mishaps, misdirections and boons, he continues his recoveries and remains hopeful. 

Some also consider him pretty funny. He hopes they recover.
