CPCUG is sorry to note the passing Rich Schinnell,
a past President of CPCUG and a long time leader among our volunteers. His energy and commitment will be long remembered. His columns were a mainstay for our Monitor magazine, which are in the archive on this website. More will be added as time permits. In time we will post memorial particulars.
Thank you, Rich

This is the new CPCUG website. Welcome. Access is limited in places to CPCUG Members, and improving parts of the site is ongoing. Do look around, and let us know what you think, using the "Contact Us" online form or posting to our forums.
Please do not confuse access to CPCUG webmail with registration (to post comments and ask questions on this website).
- The former occurs using the white text on blue menu item, labeled "WebMail" on the right side of the blue menu bar.
- The latter "Login" (blue text on white in the upper right corner), only works for website access, not email, and then only if you have been authenticated following asking to be registered. You ask for registration by entering a valid email address and a selecting a password by clicking on the "Sign Up" link, blue text on white, in the upper right corner of most pages.
- Substantial detail about this and related matter appear under the "FAQ & Forums" link on the main menu.
The old CPCUG site is no longer operational. If you must, you can use www.archive.org's "Wayback Machine" to view its very stale content. Because of this change of address, some links on this new site may prove to be broken, and we'll fix them as time permits. This is still a volunteer activity of CPCUG.
Generally if you have questions about CPCUG don't email or phone us until you've looked at the website and our FAQ. You'll find various information updates in our Developments and News rolls, to the left, and to the Blogs, accessible by the menu above. If you know which Special Interest Group you want to explore, use the drop down menu below the main menu SIG entry, also above. Click here for current status on our email system.
Sign Up to get more Online Access.
The Sign Up hyperlink appears in the upper right corner of most pages. Once you identify yourself and provide a working email address, we'll get back to you -- as soon as our email service returns -- with a confirmation authorizing more access to downloadable materials and more. If your name is not on our existing mailing lists, we may ask you for additional information, in order to secure this site for existing users, as outlined in our FAQ.
There will later be private areas for CPCUG Members as there is now for the CPCUG Board. Both require that you be a CPCUG Member if not also a CPCUG Board Member. You're welcome to apply, using the "Contact Us" and other Membership links. Thanks.
Support CPCUG With Your Online Purchases
Thanks to Nan Blissett, CPCUG has an online "store" associated with the Amazon.com mega-shopping Web site. If you haven't visited Amazon lately, or haven't ventured beyond its huge book selection, you may be surprised that it's become an entire shopping mall offering electronics, apparel, baby items, beauty products, gourmet food, sports and outdoors items, and a wealth of other categories. As an approved Amazon Associate, CPCUG earns from 4 to 10 percent on Amazon purchases referred from the CPCUG.ORG Web site. The higher our referrals, the greater our earnings will be. So when purchasing from Amazon—think CPCUG.ORG! This helps fund CPCUG's revitalization and supports our community service activities (free meetings, science fair judging and prizes, computer recycling, etc.)
Shopping with CPCUG is easy and costs no extra time or money. Instead of going straight to the Amazon.com Web site, simply go to CPCUG's Amazon Shops and select the category in which you're interested. Once you're on the Amazon Web site, purchases you make in all categories during that visit will be credited to CPCUG.
