WE WELCOME YOU TO
THE OFFICIAL WEB SITE OF:
SCORCC is an organization for Senior Citizens (age 55 or older) having a common interest in personal computers. After friendliness, the main quality which the members have in common is their desire to learn more about computers and the software which makes computers work. Members share their computer knowledge and experiences with newer members.
The St. Louis County Missouri Department of Human Services and the County Older Resident Programs (CORP) supports SCORCC.
SCORCC General meetings are generally held on the First Monday of the month from 1 to 3 PM at Tesson Ferry Library. The September meeting is our annual Meetnic. The December Meeting is a Holiday/Installation of Officers luncheon/party.
The meeting commences with members Pledging Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America
Approval of previous month's minutes is called for, as published in Bits, Bytes & Bugs.
The Treasurer will then report the financial condition of the club and approval will be requested.
Visitors will be welcomed and attendees counted.
Next, there will be announcements and comments related to the condition and general direction of the club.
Immediately following these comments, Special Interest Group (SIG) Leaders will be introduced for the purpose of announcing their up coming SIG meeting.
In the event there is a featured Guest Speaker, they will be introduced. If there is time left after the Guest Speaker, the club will have a short session of "no dumb questions". In lieu of the availability of a Guest Speaker, a No Dumb Questions session will be the program for the meeting.
The program will conclude at 2:30 PM., giving members time to visit until 3:00 PM, at which time we must prepare to clear the auditorium.
The SCORCC Board meets about a week before the General Meeting, usually on a Monday from 1 to 3 pm at
the County Government Center at 4544 Lemay Ferry.
The Board reviews the minutes of the past meeting, receives the Treasurers report, authorizes the payment of submitted bills and reviews the entire operation of the Club, including the Special Interest Groups and Committees.
Club problems and new ideas are presented and discussed by Board Members in a round-table discussion. Motions are made and voting is recorded.
In event a meeting is cancelled due to a uncontrolled circumstance, the Moderator of the Month will notify the Board members of the change.

How the Internet Came to Be . . . . .
In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.
And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?"
And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"
And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS).
Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent. To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew To The People (HTTP).
And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.
And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. And indeed did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.
And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel , or eBay as it came to be known. He said, "We need a name that reflects what we are."
And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators." "YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.
Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside. It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).
That is how it all began. And that's the truth.

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. They had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that out- house into the creek.
One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away.
That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why.
The dad replied, "someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it, son?"
The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth."
The dad replied, "well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in that cherry tree!"
