Sig Computing Topic: Troubleshooting Your Computer 101

Presented by Judy Taylour

Before you make that $99 tech support call, you can do many easy things to troubleshoot problems you encounter with your computer. Can’t start your computer? Does your hard drive make grinding noises? Is it taking forever to start? Does it randomly turn off and restart? Has your printer stopped working? This presentation covers problems and solutions that might help if and when…..

In addition, she co-facilitated the Southern California Regional User Group Summit (SCRUGS), a group of computer clubs in Southern California that met quarterly for over 20 years to share ideas, presenter information, solve problems, etc. Information shared at the meetings helped two groups remain active.

SIG-Linux Topic: Exploring fun things to do with Linux

Presented by Sharan Kalwani

The beauty of Linux is that one can do a  lot of fun things with it (and I don’t mean console video games).

A lot of ASCII text based stuff and some graphics.

We will explore about 40 minutes of amusing entertainment, which will delight the younger version of you.
