Our Next Meeting: NAS + RAID + Storage Solutions -All

At this meeting we shall discuss use of NAS and Raid systems for backing up. Also network storage solutions and and backup software. It will be somewhat open-ended so come along and talk about how you cope with the everlasting issues of backing up. It should be interesting.

Our Last Meeting: Social Evening Wednesday 23rd January 2019

This was held at the Wooden Fender Restaurant in Ardleigh. I think everyone enjoyed the evening. I certainly enjoyed my meal. The lamb shank was awesome.

This was quite a comfortable venue not too noisy and service was good. It isn't always easy to find but it has a spacious car park. I expect we'll visit again.

Here are a couple of photos to celebrate the event.
