Insert joke about the people of Yorkshire and saving money wherever possible… here!
With the cost of living rising at a rate approaching escape velocity – suggesting NASA’s Artemis 1 mission might be fuelled by British prices – any tips and tricks on how to save money will be welcomed by many at the moment. And at this month’s Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) meeting, Peter Richmond will be looking at just this issue.
He will be talking to the group about how to save money on technology, and looking at how technology can be used to save money – which all in sounds like a win win.
Following Peter’s talk, there will be a more informal discussion on RISC OS matters.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 7th September, with a starting time of 7:45pm, and this month it will be a virtual meeting, held using the Zoom video conferencing system, so is open to anyone – not just members.
To join the meeting you will need an internet connection and a computer or other device capable of running the Zoom software, which is available for all mainstream platforms. With that set up and working, you’ll also need the meeting’s access details – if you’ve attended any recent online WROCC meetings, these are the same as they have been for a while, but if not you can request them from the club.
A suitably comfortable chair, along with snacks and drinks, may also be a wise choice – but all of that is in your hands.
If you’ve attended any meetings and want to thank them properly, membership of the Wakefield Club is excellent value for money at just £10.00 per year (discounted to £5.00 for the first). In return for that, you’ll have free access to their in person meetings if you’re in the vicinity whenever they take place, access to their online discussion list, and the self-titled monthly WROCC newsletter delivered to your door email inbox as a PDF.
