MLPAA 5th Annual Pumpkin Hunt and Hay Ride


10-18-2017 Icon Computer Users Group

Unfortunately the Story Hour Room wasn't meant for Remote Stories or Presentations.
We struggled for a while and then the ICON Computer Users group asked if I could
wait while they moved to a different part of the Library that had better internet access.
Since the cam on the computer that was used wasn't working, I have no video of the presentation.
I was able to hear the club even if not clearly.
The good thing was that the club had an excellent feed coming from my side and  had no problems
watching the PowerPoint presentation and hear my narration after they moved.
All's well that ends well. .

Uninstall Before you Install

Before you install Avast(or any other Antivirus program) you first need to uninstall what’s currently installed on your system.This will make that process safe and easier.
(I've checked all the links and they all lead to the right place.)

10/19/2017 Modesto PCUG - Modesto, CA

An interesting evening with the Modesto PC Users Group.
We had an interesting discussion prior to the Presentation.

We also had a nice Q&A session after the presentation.
Again, a big thanks to Avast Software for making this possible.

10/15/2017 East Central Ohio PC Users Club - Newark, OH

It was nice to the many of the faces from the ECOTU. I've been a member of this club
for several years. (I guess I can count myself as one of the attendees.)

Facebook Hacked? Here's how to check.

Better Safe than Sorry!

10-11-2017 SCV Computer Club - Newhall, CA

The SVC Computer Club located in the Santa Clarita Valley in California,enjoys keeping up with technology. If you live in the era, this is a clubworth joining and supporting.

10-11-2017 The Madison PC Users Group - Madison, WI

As you can see, this was a very small group. The presentation was well receiveddespite a few hiccups. Apparently the clubs laptop hadn't been used in a while.During the middle of the presentation, Windows decided to reboot to finish someneed updates. Keeping your programs and Operating System updated is something I stressduring the presentation. Once the updates finished, we were able to finish the presentation.All's well that ends well.

10/11/2017 Indian Prairie Computer Club - Hinsdale, IL

Image remote Presentation to the Club, was followed by a very extensive Q&A Session.The video is only a very small excerpt from that Q&A session.

10/10/2017 Twin Cities PC Users Group - Minneapolis, MN

Last but certainly not the least of my three remote presentations yesterday was for the members and guests of the Twin Cities PC UG.I have to admit that doing 3 presentations in one day is a lot easier via Zoomthan it is in person. Thanks Avast for making this possible.

10/10/2017 Rochester Computer Society - Rochester, NY

Tuesday was a busy day. The Rochester Computer Society was my second of three stops for the day.

10/10/2017 Greenspring Retirement Community Computer Club Springfield, VA

It's a bit strange to do a one sided presentation. They had no problem
seeing and hearing me and seeing the presentation. I wasn't so lucky.
The good thing is that my audience was still very happy to have received the
remote Presentation.

10-9-2017 Komputer Enthusiasts of Greater Seattle, WA

Last night I had the pleasure of doing a presentation for the members of KEGS
This was a smaller club ideally suited for a remote presentation.
Monetarily, it isn't possible to do a live presentation for every club.
Doing a remote presentation makes sense because expenses are minimal yet,
the club receives virtually the same information and benefit. I've been very happy with ZOOM to do these remote presentations.It just works.

10-6-2017 PC Community in Hayward, CA

Last night I had the privilege to do a Remote Presentation for the
Members and Guests of the PCC in Hay, CA

10-5-2017 Wisconsin All-computer Users Club - Milwaukee, WI

Performing in the dark,

Another nice crowd for last night's Zoom presentation sponsored by Avast Software
The light was turned down low to make the screen more visible for the attendees
at last night's presentation to the members and guests of the WAUC

10-5-2017 Computer Club of OKC - OK

Nice when you're told that there was standing room only.
Wish I had been there. This was another remote (Zoom) presentation.
We started out with a little malfunction

Once they plugged in all of the connections,
the problem was resolved.

There was a 10 minute intermission before we started the Q&A session

CCOKC is another club worth joining if you live in or close to Oklahoma City, OK
If you're interested in the little glitch we had to overcome, take a look at this:
Some pictures sent to me from the 10/5/2017 Remote Presentation in Oklahoma City, OK

10/2/2017 Quad-Cities Computer Society - Moline, IL

It was nice to see a full house last night for the Remote Presentation
to the members and guests of the Quad-Cities Computer Society
Even the little glitch at the end didn't dampen any one's spirits. Apparently,
the computer used by the club wasn't plugged in and ran out of power just
before we got to the end of the Q&A session that followed the presentation.
I didn't know that till the club realized what had happened.
After plugging in the power cord to the laptop, and reconnecting to the ZOOM link,
we were able to complete the evening's event.

An American Tragedy

How do you make sense out of a Senseless Act? You can't. 
What you can do is to pray for all those affected. 
You can say thank you to all of those who helped. 
You can pray for unity. 
The shooting that happened last night in Las Vegas was totally senseless and totally unpreventable.
