WEEKLY SIG MEETING UPDATE 25 - 30 October 2010
School of Arts
280 Pitt Street, Sydney
Sydney PCUG's Blog
1 - 6 November 2010
The Committee & Members
would like to welcome
new members and
subscribers who joined
during the month of October.
The sixth Annual Australian IPV6 Conference was held in Melbourne this week.
Most of us are currently using the Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPV4) to surf the web but the number of unique addresses is limited to around about 4.2 billion. That is insufficient to cater for the growth of the internet over the next few years.
There was a short talk on the ABC about the development of IPV6 on Thursday. The new protocol opens up some amazing possibilities. You can listen to that talk or read the transcript if you click here.
Hello and Welcome,
Alex has arranged another interesting presenter for Tuesday's Main Meeting. There will be prizes to be won and a friendly atmosphere to be enjoyed.
Tuesday 26 October - MAIN Meeting - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
It's Internet Security time again, and this time we have AVG's
Marketing and Security Guru, Lloyd Borrett, visiting us to showcase AVG's latest 2011 range of security products.
There is the ever popular AVG Free and the free Linkscanner software
that scans the sites you're visiting in real time to ensure they're safe
before you go there.
AVG also has paid products, from AVG Anti-Virus through to the full AVG Internet Security 2011, as well as editions for small, medium and large businesses.
Lloyd will share some of AVG's latest findings and explain how Linkscanner and
AVG are better and faster than ever.
Lloyd will also have some copies of AVG Internet Security to give away as he has done in years past.
So, come and learn about AVG's 2011 range of security products and why AVG's Linkscanner technology blows the competition - and the bad guys - out of the water!
See you there.
