NEW Chat! by MomJ: 

The Paint Shop Pro Users Group announces the move of its chat room,
#psp/group, to StarChat.Net on IRC (Internet Relay Chat).
To learn more about the network, its services, and general IRC information,
visit their site or read their monthly Star News on line.

Currently we hold Study Sessions there on Thursdays and Saturdays.
Members may be found socializing during Friday Frolic (evening USA time).
We hope to offer more scheduled activities in the future, such as basic psp
for beginners, chat help sessions, and social activities. Our goal is to
have this room open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for help and socializing.
If you enjoy IRC and are interested in donating several hours a week to open
the channel, please contact MomJ, and include your hours of availability.
This includes all our members in the eastern hemisphere as well!

To most enjoy chatting with us we suggest you use an IRC chat client
(program)such as Pirch or mIRC. However, we have also installed a browser
based Java chat for those who, for technical reasons, are unable to use
IRC connections, or do not wish to install another program on their computers.
If you are familiar with IRC, simply set your network to StarChat.Net,
select a server from the current list, log on, and /join #psp/group.

Members Sites/Tutorials by Tom Stack 

In late February the Members Sites page had 87 sites listed on one page. 
Today we have over 350 sites listed and in the near future will double our 
present five (5) pages to facilitate quicker loading time. 
Speaking of loading time, something we all are concerned with due to the 
graphic 
content of our pages. In March I did a  Midi Player tutorial for the group 
which also was featured in the May issue of the German computer magazine 
"PC Online". The java Midi Player lets your 
page load without having to load a midi file saving loading time. It 
also lets your visitor decide whether to view with or without the midi. 
Right click on the above link to view the tutorial in a separate window.

Members Directory by Milda Hadaway: 

   I have the privilege of keeping the members directory current. 
All our members are listed by their Screen Names. Members 
are not mandated to list themselves in the directory. This is just 
a way of putting your name, e-mail address and your website 
addy in view of the other members in the group should you 
choose to do so. There is also a comment section in the directory 
in which you may post information about yourself or your site 
that you would like the other members to know about. 
We currently have a little over 200 of our members listed. 
The member's directory is only accessible by other PSP 
members. We encourage our members to visit the member's 
directory and find out about each other. The directory an excellent 
source in finding someone else in the group who might have 
interest similar to yours. If you have any questions regarding the 
directory please don't hesitate to ask. You can contact me 
at milda@prodigy.net. Thanks, and keeps those listing submissions 
coming in! Milda
