2/24/2020 The Payson Computer Club - Payson, AZ

Tonight's presentation was the last presentation on this tour of Arizona.
The Payson Computer Club a few years ago changed to a Meetup club.
It was a small group at tonight's meeting due to a last minute change in the meeting place.
The usual meeting place at the Payson Public Library was not available due to construction.
We still had an excellent meeting with many question raised by those attending.
The questions asked ranged from Avast SecureLine to Avast Passwords Manager
I was happy to address all of the questions asked.

3-2-2020 Greater South Bay PC Users Group - Torrance, CA

It was a small but very interested group for this remote presentation.
A question was raised about Avast's data collection practice which I was
happy to answer.

3-4-2020 Under the Computer Hood Users Group - San Diego, CA

This evening I had the pleasure of addressing the members of this club.
The presentation was well received and was followed by many questions including the steps
to install Avast when already using another third party AV.
I was also given a mouse pad which I had mentioned was something I should have
brought with me on this trip. The hotel where I'm staying uses a table with a glass top.
My mouse isn't fancy enough to work on that surface. Here's the new mouse pad.

3-7-2020 Seniors Computer Group - San Diego, CA
So apparently the Corona-virus is also effecting my presentations.
The facility where I'm scheduled to do a presentation tomorrow morning has decided to close their facility
to all outsiders in order to protect their elderly residents from the virus.
(Come to think of it, I also fit into that elderly category.)
California is one of the states where there are active cases of this virus.
It's time for Avast to come up with protection against this virus. :)

I've been granted a reprieve.
My presentation will be the last event to outside visitors until further notice. Thank You.

3-7-2020 Seniors Computer Group - San Diego, CA

This was the presentation that almost didn't happen. The club members had lots of questions
during and after the presentation. Many of the questions had to do with the Avast Password Manager.
We also had a long discussion on the topic of making up strong passwords and I was happy to share my
thoughts on that topic. We also talked about the importance of a regular backup regiment.

A new picture just sent to me from my 3-4-2020 presentation.

As you can see, the presentations aren't only about serious matters and doom and gloom stuff.
Sometimes a bit of humor does a much better job of getting the point across.
The point this slide stresses is the importance of using quality programs and apps and,
the importance of creating an image backup on a regular basis.
