10-4-2021 Tech for Seniors - Episode 80
Today my age and the number of episodes we've done are a match.

Another information packed show. Cyber security, product repair,
part two of Screen and Font Size adjustments, using Edge to create a user friendly URL,
how to post articles on Facebook and we ended with some music nostalgia.
A twenty minute Q&A followed the show.

10/6/2021 Computer Booters, AZ - Remote

This is the first of 4 presentation I'll be doing today.
It was nice to visit with the members of the Computer Booters today.
It's been a few years since I 'visited' this club even if it was only remotely.
After the presentation, I had some questions on the price of Avast OMNI and the
Family plan of Avast One.

10/6/2021 Under the Computer Hood User Group, CA - Remote

Todays fourth presentation was for the members of UCHUG. https://www.uchug.org/
Only via Zoom can you start out inthe morning in AZ, follow that up a 2 1/2 hrs.
later in Florida then 3 hrs later do a presentation in VA and end the evening in
San Diego, CA. Covering that great a distance in one day is only possible remotely.
I have to admit that even remotely, 4 presentations in one day are still tiring.
It's always great to spend time with the members of UCHUG and I'm happy they extended
the invitation. I'll probably be back with them next month as a guest.
The Q&A session lasted longer than the presentation.
We discussed WiFi repair, Avast Secureline vs free VPN's Avast One, and Avast OMNI.
We also spent some time discussing Avast's HackCheck and the importance of using a Password Manager.
The Q&A session finally ended at 10:00 PM (MT). Tomorrow's presentation starts at 7:30 AM (MT).
