Maine Macintosh Owners
& Operators Society
Next MMOOS MMeeting:
20 December 2016
5:30 PM (Special Time!)
Large Meeting Room, Thornton Oaks Retirement Community
25 Thornton Way, Brunswick, Maine 04011
Featured Program: Annual Holiday Extravaganza!!!
We’ll begin at 5:30 PM with mingle and appetizer time and plan on eating in earnest at 6:00 PM. The meal will be “pot luck”. MMOOS mmanagement will provide utensils, plates, chips, salsa, water, and a variety of sodas. Here’s how we’re gonna divvy up the food: If your last name starts with A thru H, please bring a light entree. I thru R please bring a salad or appetizer. S thru Z please bring a dessert. Having said all that, if you make an amazing specialty that’s outside your last name alphabetical window, please feel free. Simple, easy, effective. Oh,
We’re going to try to have a joyously short “meeting” while we dine, starting around 6:15. We’ll do a little Updates & Rumors and give away a couple of door prizes. We’ll get to know each other better, and talk a little about what we want to accomplish in 2017.
MMOOSDroppings Mail List
To promote community for members of the Maine Macintosh Owners & Operators Society and to provide a means for Apple users to help each other in times of need, we’ve created a mail list, aptly called “MMOOSDroppings”. MMOOSDroppings was the name of our longtime newsletter, but 1995 called and they want their trees-crying-out-in-the- forest paper newsletter back.
If you’re not familiar, here’s how a mail list works. You subscribe to the mail list with your email address. Let’s say you have a question/comment about how to do something with your Apple device. You send the question/comment in an email to the list email address, and everyone subscribed to the list receives your email. Let’s say someone else has the answer, responds via email to the list email address, and everyone else sees the answer. It’s a great way to spread information and build community – Apple users helping Apple users. It’s what it’s all about.
The only trick to the list is that once you subscribe with a given email address you have to use that address for future “posts” to the list, or they will “bounce” and no one will see them. Also, we don’t allow attachments of any kind. There’s nothing to keep you from sending an image via off-list, personal email, to someone who may be helping you.
While we don’t restrict anyone from subscribing, we do moderate the list and if anyone uses the list for any “unto wards” reasons, or is not a good list citizen, they will be removed promptly.

See you on the list!
Mail List Tips:
Remember that everyone on the list can read your posts. Also, you will be able to see the email address of other list members on their posts. If you have a personal message to another list member, email them directly.
Don’t say anything on the list that you wouldn’t want printed on the front page of the local newspaper.
Trim irrelevant information out of your posts. You should, however, leave parts of previous posts that help to remind members what you’re posting about.
If you are starting a new topic, please make sure the SUBJECT of the new email reflects the new topic.
