Mrs. Gilleran's classroom phone number is 501-701-1739 if you want to let her know when you want to come.


Scholarships

As part of our goal to be of service to our community, we have set up a scholarship for a qualified high-school student from either Jessieville, Fountain Lake, or Mountain Pine who plans to go on to college to study computer-related technology. This year, we received enough donations to award three $300 scholarships - two Fountain Lake students and one Jessieville student.

fundraising ideas for schools, churches, and youth sports teams

Currently, we have enough funds to offer one scholarship. We are asking for donations to help us fund at least one more scholarship in 2015. There will be a donation jar at our evening and breakfast meetings as well as at each of our classes. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax deductible.

Donations may be mailed payable to Computer Club of HSV, P.O. Box 8387, Hot Springs Village, AR 71910. Be sure to indicate it is a scholarship donation. If you need proof of donation for tax purposes, please let us know.

As an added incentive, one of our members has challenged our membership. He will match $1 for every $3 donated up to $500 (requires $1,500 in donations to reach the maximum $500 match). Watch the thermometer to see how close we are are doing.

APCUG's Winter Virtual Technology Conference Session Videos

APCUG's free 2015 Spring Virtual Technology Conference (VTC) will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The sessions are 50 Minutes in length and offer attendees the opportunity to ask questions via a chat window.

Track 1 Sessions:

iPad 101: Turning on the iPad, Physical Components, Basic iPad Operations, Using the Keyboard, Connecting to the Internet, Putting the iPad to sleep or Off.

Picasa, an easy-to-use digital editing program: What can you do when a photo looks awful but you just can’t throw it out?

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of Recording and Organizing Your Research on the Web: Which websites allow you to record your information online? Comparison of the pros and cons of several of the leading online tools including Ancestry.com, familysearch.org, MyHeritage.com, and others.

Preview of New APCUG WordPress Website: Jim Evans, APCUG Director presents Hewie Poplock is retiring as APCUG’s webmaster and, since he is the only person familiar with Drupal, we needed to decide on a program to create a new website, who was going to put it together—you know, all of the things you need to do when you lose your webmaster. Bids went out, responses were received and the contract was awarded to AnnaGraphics. One of her references was the Danbury Area Computer Society website. Join us today and take a preview tour of our new WordPress website. It will go live in early-May.

Track 2 Sessions:

Selecting the Best Backup Approach: We will inspect the four most common backup approaches on the market and tell you the advantages and problems with that backup approach. We will also describe why and where you would want to use each type of backup available. Most important of all, we will tell you why one backup approach is vastly superior to all of the others.

Are We Under Cyber Attack?: The constantly increasing volume of information has indicated that we are indeed under an increasing level of cyber attack. Sadly, most of us are blissfully unaware of the degree and scope that our computer systems are being hacked and penetrated, with massive amounts of personal, technical and other sensitive information being stolen. It is not just the massive theft of computer data that has been damaging our national security and economy, but the increasing number of cyber attacks that have threatened our critical infrastructure as well as jeopardized our collective personal safety.

Social Networking: What the Heck are Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn???: What is everyone talking about when they bring up Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites. Also, how you can enjoy the benefits without risking the loss of your privacy.
