Happy February everyone! At least it’s finally warmed up a bit, eh? Now it just needs to snow a bunch more! Oh, and it’s also going to be a great month for computer classes!

Class list for February 2013:
Sat., February 9th, from 10 a.m. to noon: Password Management; Ridgway Town Hall
Sat., February 23rd, from 10 a.m. to noon: Intermediate iPad/iPhone; Ridgway Town Hall
Wed., February 27th from 5-7 p.m.: FREE Mac OS X Overview; Ridgway Library
The details:
 On Saturday, February 9th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be offering a brand new class: Password Management. Come learn everything there is to know about the crux of every good security set up: your password! I’ll cover everything from how to create strong passwords, to the biggest question: how to keep track of them all once you have dozens of them! Cost for this class is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. No sign-up necessary, and it’s open to drop-ins, so come if you can!
 On Saturday, February 23rd, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be offering another new class, one that’s been requested a lot in the last year: an Intermediate iPad/iPhone program. In this class I will take you to the next level with your iOS device: Apps, Books (audio and e-books), Movies, Music, etc. etc. In general, how to use your device to do the really cutting-edge stuff! Cost for this class is also $20, and it’s held at the Ridgway Town Hall. As above, no sign-up is necessary, drop-ins are welcome!
 As I mentioned last month, the Ridgway Library has given me the go-ahead to switch up my regular FREE Library classes, which take place on the last Wednesday of every month.
Starting last month, I’m now alternating monthly between the Mac OS X Overview and an iPad/iPhone Overview! This month, it’s the FREE Mac OS X Overview on Wednesday, February 27th from 5-7 p.m. The Mac overview classes are always held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library, while the iPad/iPhone ones are held in their small meeting room. There are only eight seats available, so you have to sign up, and the Library has asked that I handle the sign ups, so 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).
For the iPad/iPhone Overview, you’ll need to bring your own device. For the Mac Overview, there are six Macs in the computer lab, so only two of the eight attendees need their own laptops. This class is beginner-oriented, but we cover some different things every month; repeat attendees are encouraged (when there’s room)!
Take care everyone, and have a great month!!
As always, let me know if there’s something else you’d like me to consider covering in the Saturday sessions.
