Oman Mac Users Group

Any one here a Mac user?

Would you be interested in joining up with other Mac users in Oman to set up an Oman Mac Users Group?

The goal of the user group is to begin as an informal group where members can get together occasionally and share experiences and advice regarding Macintosh platform. Eventually the group should set up an online presence and expand its membership and promote increased Mac usage in Oman. The group can leverage membership with the official Apple distributors in Oman to gain discounts on purchases for its members as well.

If interested please reply here.

Sounds like a really nice idea. Unfortunately I am NOT a Mac user though.

How many people really are Mac users? As I only know two people who are my cousins and they live in UAE.

Excellent idea. I would like to join. I became a Mac user earlier this year and my first reaction was "why didn't I do this ages ago".

Count me in.

Cult. Cult folk all of you.

Great initiative. Good luck to you and we at EmiratesMac.com are happy to offer our support where we can.

I forgot to add that we want to distribute Shufflegazine to Oman as well and we're happy to put news and information about any Oman Mac User Group in there, even covering the first meeting when it happens.

Muscati, I think starting an Oman Mac from or blog (something like EmiratesMac.com) would be a very good initiative even though it might probably look like an EmiratesMac.com copy-cat.

This is a GREAT Idea. Im a soon to be a MACer.

muscati said...

Aren't all user groups copies of one another?

All I am planning to do is get the people together and from there on I hope one of the members can take it on forward.

Amjad said...

Yes, you are right.

So why don't you for example start this by opening a blog or forum for Oman Mac Users, and through that blog or forum attract members to the group? I think this way it'd be easier and more effective.

Just installed OSX 10.5.5 on my brand spanking new NC10. Looks really good. After some tweaking, almost everything works, including the native WiFi card (which has been pretty much impossible until those last few days).

The only things that don't work right now are brightness control from the function keys, automatic switching between the built-in speaker and the headphone jack (you have to run a manual switch script) Sleeping on AC power, and LAN.

Most of which should be sorted out in the next couple of weeks. Tomorrow, I give Windows 7 a shot.

P.S. typing this out in Safari. It's not bad on the mac, just on any other platform (y)
