North Orange County Club, NOCCC, meets monthly, generally on the first Sunday of the month. For directions to the meetings and what we have to offer go to the NOCCC web site.

The primary purpose of the Windows 9X SIG is to answer questions you have about Windows 9X (Windows 95 and Windows 98.) They can be: problems (software and hardware,) software suggestions (utilities, applications, etc.,) and how-to requests. Or you can just visit and learn about Windows 9X by being there. The meeting is held in Science 111 from 9am to 11am. You can show up and leave at anytime.

Note: Bring a 3.5", 1.4MB floppy. I generally have Zipped files full of information.
