Happy December 1st everyone! It was -5° here in Ridgway this morning, so winter is apparently finally arrived in earnest. I think I’m finally ready for it too, though that was a pretty harsh transition! At least we’ve finally reached the ideal time of year to stay inside for a computer class, right?

Class list for December 2016:

  • Thurs., December 8th, from 6-8 pm: “iTunes”; Ridgway Library; discover all the ins & outs of this 900 pound gorilla of media managers!
  • Tues., December 13th, from 3-5 pm: “Office Hours with the Mac Doctor”; Proximity Space in Montrose
  • Weds., December 21st, from 5-7 pm: FREE macOS Overview; Ridgway Library

The details:

 First off, next Thursday, December 8th, from 6-8 pm, at the Ridgway Library, I’ll be revisiting an app we could all use some help with: iTunes. With all that you can put on your iDevices these days, knowing how to use iTunes has become essential. And it’s had another major interface overhaul again recently (yes, again!). If you’ve been wanting to learn how to manage what gets synced to your iPhone, or how to make & burn that cool playlist to a CD for your friends, this class is for you. We’ll cover everything from understanding where everything lives, to navigating all the stores, as well as importing your own CD’s, audiobooks, movies, etc. Cost for this class is $20, and will be held at the Ridgway Library. Please let me know if you plan to attend.

 Then, on Tuesday, December 13th, from 3-5 pm, at Proximity Space in Montrose, I’ll once again be offering “Office hours with the Mac Doctor” sessions. I will be available to answer your questions, take a look at your wonky Mac/iPhone/iPad, or simply have a chat about the latest happenings in the tech world. Attention will be given on a first-come, first-served basis, so come on down and introduce yourself, take a look around Proximity Space! Charges, if any, will be determined by the complexity/difficulty of your issue, and if the issue is serious enough, a separate appointment may be necessary.

 Lastly, it’s the FREE macOS Overview (for Macs, not iPhones/iPads), on Wednesday, December 21st from 5-7 pm at the Ridgway Library. NOTE: The date for the is class is a week earlier than the normal last-Wednesday-of-the-month, due to the holidays. This class is held in the small meeting room at the Library, and space is limited, so you have to sign up. Give me a call at 970-417-8434 (or drop me an email) if you’d like to attend. (Be aware that first-timers take priority over anyone who has taken the class before, but there are often openings for repeaters).

I hope to see you all at a class sometime soon!
