  Another great show. We maxed out at 100 early and started the YouTube Live stream early. An additional 9 viewers joined via YouTube live stream. We covered several topics including security, virtual reality and how it relates to seniors, how Covid has changed our daily lives and changing over to an SSD drive.

  I spent some time this afternoon with the members of  PCBUG . The presentation was well received. It was followed by a log Q&A session that covered many topics. Password Managers, SecurLine, Omni, and routers were just some of the top topics. The Q&A session took longer than the presentation which was great.

1/18/2021 Bellaggio Computer and Technology Club, Fl - Remote

Image
  I spent this afternoon with the club members but was a bit disappointed because I usually saw them for their Sunday brunch. Today was all business, no brunch, no goodies. Everyone still had a wonderful time and since we spent about 1/2 hr. just doing Q&A, they must all have been interested. The most discussion during that Q&A was about backups. There was also quite an interest in Avast Omni. Avast Free ,  Avast Secure Browser ,  Avast SecureLine ,  Avast Omni

  I spent this evening with a few of the members of the club. This club has been affected by the pandemic which is evident in the attendance. It's a club that like most of us hopes COVID-19 will soon be behind us. I do know that those that attended enjoyed and learned from the information in my  new presentation .

1-13-2021 Sun City Center Computer Club, FL - Remote

Image
  This presentation was a bit different than most. I presented via Zoom to two  club  members and one of them streamed the presentation to YouTube Live. This is how they get the presentation to their members. For me the drawback is that this method doesn't allow for interaction with the audience. Since there is also a time delay between the Zoom presentation and the broadcast to YouTube, live questions aren't really possible. It was still an enjoyable evening and I was told that the information was well received.

  This evening I had the pleasure of spending some time with the members of the Lorain County Computer Users Group . It was a small but extremely interested group. I was asked and answered a question about data harvesting. I also had a question and some interest in Avast Omni.
