'93 17 As you can see, 50 members have joined, or renewed since the opening of SMUGgler's BBS. 44 of these 50 are BBS users, and 14 of the 50 are students. 62 of our 81 members have logged on to the BBS at least once, which is impressive, but it also means that a whopping 25% of our membership has not taken advantage of SMUG's new files library and its most powerful means of communication. As a full member of the Sequoia Macintosh Users' Group, you are entitled to full use of SMUGgler's BBS. Some of the benefits are: 1) Macintosh Technical Support, andTips & Tricks Forums to increase your productivity. 2) A wide range of current freeware, shareware, and online news and periodicals. 3) Interaction both private and public with other SMUG members. 4) A link to a world-wide network of Mac users, the OneNet. We would like all of our members to try this service at least once. In order to try to convince you to do so, we are offering to loan you a modem. If you already have a modem, we will help you get it set up and show you how to use the SMUGgler's BBS. We will also try to help with any other questions or problems you may be having with your Mac and it's attachments and software. All you have to do is call me at 445-3454, and leave me a message indicating that you would like to try the service. There will be absolutely no obligation on your part. We'll come to your house, hook up the equipment and show you how to get online. You can keep the modem for two weeks. If you don't like it, we'll come by and pick up the modem, and will be happy just to have had you try SMUGgler's online world. Won't you try it? - Steve
