10-3-2022 Tech for Seniors - Episode 131

It was evident by the attendance that some of our viewers from the areas affected by Ian
had problems connecting today. We still had good attendance and a feature packed show.
During today's show we covered Cyber Security, A new security feature in Windows 11 V22H2,
setting up emergency services on your cell phone, four windows 11 tips,
saving photos in Gmail, What to do with your left-over coffee, Android Phone Launchers,
and the music outro featuring Jimmy Buffett ended the show.
As always, a twenty min. Q&A session finished up the session.

10-4-2022 - Komputer Enthusiasts of Greater Seattle, WA

This evening's hybrid meeting was for the members of KEGS
The presentation was well received. There were quite a few
questions after the presentation covering Avast One Essential
regarding the included VPN. There was also a question regarding
data collected and saved by Avast SecureLine.
SecureLine, doesn't collect data so there is nothing to save. 
I was also happy to answered some questions about Ccleaner.

10-5-2022 Under the Computer Hood UG - CA

I spent yesterday evening remotely visiting with club members in San Diego.
Evening sessions in CA are always pretty late for my lifestyle since I'm a very early riser.
I was however very happy to again see and interact with old friends.
The presentation was well received and followed by a Q&A session where we discussed
the importance of VPN's, cookies and what they are. We also talked about reducing the
sales popups in Avast Free and how to adjust the personal privacy settings in Avast.

This morning I remotely joined the club members for the annual   
Cyber Security Awareness presentation witch was well received.
We had folks remotely attending from Canada, Great Brittan and the US.
I was asked about the different version Avast offered.
Someone said that they first needed to absorb all the information presented
before she could ask any questions.

10-10-2022 Tech for Seniors - Episode 132

Our attendance today was a bit lighter than usual. Probably because it's a holiday today
both in the US and in Canada. Columbus Day here and Thanksgiving Day in Canada.
Those that attended learned about all the security news that occurred since the last show,
they got to see what the new Gmail interface will look like, saw the final episode on Solar Energy,
learned how to use Google Photos to edit their videos, learned how to search for traffic Cams, and
saw a tribute to Loretta Lynn in our music tribute. The show ended with a Q&A session where we
answered many questions on the topics covered.

This evening I was happy to join the club members for their hybrid meeting.
It's a small but very interested club. They even had some brownies baked for me.
After the presentation we talked about 2FA and why it should be used at anyplace that offers it.

I remotely visited the with members of SenCom in Kansas City, KS
For this presentation I used  FreeConfereceCall for the first time and I was impressed.
The only problem I had was unsharring my screen which we eventually solved.
During the Q&A session that followed the presentation, we discussed the importance of
the removal of a currently installed Antivirus before installing Avast or any other AV.

10-17-2022 Tech for Seniors - Episode 133

Another well attended and feature packed show.
Before the actual start of the show, my ISP, Comcast, decided to cut off service twice.
The good thing is that all of this happened during the first half hour of the show which is
devoted to general discussions. The internet service was without troubles during the show.
Today we covered the following topics, Cyber Security News, IRS Smishing warnings,
All about the Ember Coffee Mug, Choosing an ISP provider in Cnada and the USA,
Should you be using BeReal, and we ended with a tribute to Angela Lansbury.
A Q&A session followed the show devoted to the topic presented.
