The Manchester Acorn User Group is pleased to announce the forth coming visit by Mike Glover of Icon Technology

Department of Chemistry, Cockcroft Building, University of Salford. Wed, 27th April, 1999. 7.30pm start

Mike Glover, besides being the head of Icon Technology, producers of the world beating TechWriter and EasiWriter packages, is also a very entertaining speaker. As anyone who has visited the Icon stand at Wakefield or at any of the other Acorn related shows both in the UK and Europe will testify, what Mike doesn't know about text processing and integrated software, really is not worth knowing about!

Unlike our normal meeting place, this meeting is being held at University of Salford, Department of Chemistry. There are a number of reasons behind this, but the main one is the availability of a video projector! (Why?, well MAUG still does not charge for membership so us getting such items of kit rely on the good will of committee members employers!)

Getting to Salford

Turn on the graphics, you'll need them

As you can see, Salford is very well supported by road and public transport (Salford Crescent BR station is literally 3 minutes walk from the Chemistry department!)

The building marked 18 is the Department of Chemistry (Cockcroft Building). The meeting is in Room 105. This is on the 1st floor (don't worry, it will all be sign posted). Salford Crescent BR station is marked 5
