Say goodbye to XP, do some networking and watch a classic SF movie on the big screen!

  • Date:     Tuesday April 8th, 2014
  • Time:     Networking starts at 5:30pm, tribute to XP and 2003 at 6:30pm. Movie at 7.
  • Where:   The Kent Stage, 175 East Main Street, Kent, Oh 44240

You know it’s going away. You know you’ll miss it.

Why not say goodbye?

April 8th marks the end of support from Microsoft for both Windows XP and Office 2003. Yeah, they’re going to continue updating Endpoint, Security Essentials and other security pieces that work with XP. But XP and Office 2003 are going away.

Soooo…howzabout a going away party? And maybe a movie, while we’re at it?

So, here’s what we did. We’re taking over The Kent Stage (um…it’s in Kent, 175 East Main Street, Kent, Oh 44240), a really cool theater with a whole bunch of history. We’re going to start with a networking event, followed by a big-screen showing of the 1956 classic science fiction movie “Forbidden Planet.”

The event is free, as will be the popcorn. There will be a cash bar, with proceeds benefitting The Kent Stage (a non-profit group, btw).

***This is open to everybody***

Absolutely this movie event is ok for kids, btw.  The movie part, anyway.  We suspect they’ll be bored to tears with the networking.
