Protecting Yourself Your Computer Your Identity

5-8-2012 Central Iowa Computer Users Group in Ankeny, IA

24 Members of the  Central Iowa Computer User Group  where present for the 5/8/2012 evening presentation  in Ankeny, IA. It was a smaller group than last night but they where just as interested.         Very early tomorrow I'll be returning to Chicago to catch my plane for the return trip back home. I would have left from Des Moines but that would have made this trip cost prohibitive.  It would have added $1200.00 to the cost of this trip simply because the rental car didn't get returned to the place where it was originally rented from.  I think saving $1200.00 is worth driving an extra 5 1/2 hrs. and an extra tank of gas.

5-7-2012 Quad Cities Computer Society in Moline, IL

                                                (click on Picture to Enlarge) 75 members and guests of the  Quad Cities Computer Society  attended the 5/7/2012 presentation. It was an excellent evening. The presentation was followed by a lively and fairly extensive Q&A session. There was a lot of interest in avast! for all platforms and some disappointment that Avast doesn't have a version ready for the iPhone. I've posted a video on You Tube  of the pictures I took on Sunday when I went on a nature walk with the club

5-5-2012 APCUG Third Virtual Conference

On 5/5/2012 there were 28 attendees at the remote presentation held by the  APCUG .  I've also gained valuable insight and experience from this, my first, remote presentation which will make all future remote presentations easier. The only thing I missed was the person to person contact that is missing in this format. Remote presentation are however great for making presentations available to clubs of all types who are just to far removed and, without this venue would never have the opportunity to view the presentation. Through this venue, they have the opportunity to  learn of  the valuable security related information contained in that presentation . They would also not learn about  avast! 's ability to keep their system safe without the use of a remote presentation.

5-1-2012 South Suburban SIG in South Chicago IL

It was a little overcast when I arrived in Chicago yesterday: The presentation on 5/1/2012 was held at the                                                        (Click image to Enlarge) for the  South Suburban Sig  in South Chicago IL. and was attended by 26 of their members and guests.  A little less rain last night would probably have increased the attendance.                                                     (Click image to Enlarge)
