I'll be looking at the PC in the next couple of days. Hardware aside, we need to recover Tony's data and look at software requirements first. I'll report back when I've had a look.

Dear MSARS members,
I agree entirely with Phil's suggestion that our committee should either have Tony's computer sorted out as quickly as possible, or to take advantage of the current sales and buy a new desktop computer for Tony to use to produce the excellent standard of newsletters as he has in the past.
MSARS is unlikely to be able to hold meetings in Cyprus Hall, as we have in the past for some months to come, so Newsletters to be produced on a new MSARS computer are an appropriate way of keeping in touch. Please don't delay !!

The situation as I see it
1 Tony does a fantastic job doing the club Newsletter and running website
2. We have an equipment problem that needs sorting out
3. MSARS is NOT a savings bank and we have club funds available
4. Buy a new computer that is the “MSARS Newsletter & Website” PC
5. Don’t take to long making our minds up - get it done now !
What does the membership think ……………..

Some of you might have noticed that there are no MSARS Newsletters on our website now. This is because Tony Finch our excellent Editor has a problem with the computer he uses to edit and store the newsletters. Until his problem is resolved there will be no more newsletters , the December issue has already fallen by the wayside. Tony is asking for someone with tech knowledge to assist him. It may well be that he will need to replace the computer but this has yet to be decided.
Since we no longer have face to face meetings we are more reliant on members and many others both at home and overseas being able to read what is going on.
Who can help Tony? If YOU can, please email him on firstname.lastname@example.org.
