There has been a COG online community presence in one form or another since 1995... and the original Micapeak email listserv is still kicking around. Presently the most popular community is our own web forum. There is also Facebook group. These online communities can be the places where you can find help with everyday issues, discuss the fine new farkle you just installed, brag about your last great trip, or simply chat about life, the universe and everything else! You can link up to these places and more on the COG's Online Evolution page.
