Wow, how did it get to be October already?? September was as gorgeous as it gets, that’s for sure. I’m not really looking forward to winter, unlike many of you, but at least we’ll all have more time to come inside for a computer class or two, right? 
On to the class details…
Class list for October 2015:
Tues., October 20th, from 5:30-7:30 pm at the Ridgway Library: “Photos for Mac”; an in-depth exploration of Apple’s new replacement for iPhoto.
Wed., October 28th, from 5-7 pm: FREE Mac OS X Overview; Ridgway Library.
Please do let me know if you plan to attend either of these classes; if I get enough commitments ahead of time, I don’t have to send out a nagging reminder!
 First off, for a change, on Tuesday, October 20th, from 5:30-7:30 pm, due to popular demand, I’m offering a second go-round on Apple’s new Photos program for Yosemite. A lot of folks are getting more than a little discombobulated by the switch to Photos, but it’s actually quite a powerful upgrade from iPhoto. As a “version 1” app, it also has some missing features and odd functionality. If you’re running Yosemite on your Mac, you’ll want to take this class to learn all the ins & outs of the new program! Please, do let me know if you plan to attend. Cost, as usual, is $20.
 Then, the following week, I will be doing my regular last-Wednesday-of-the-month class at the Ridgway Library on Wednesday, October 28th from 5-7 pm. This month, it’s the FREE Mac OS X Overview. This class is held in the Library’s computer lab. Space is limited, 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 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)!

Anyone care to wager on when we’ll get our first snowfall? Heck, we haven’t even had a hard frost yet! Crazy…
