Changing it up

This blog was started to allow our computer students to improve their skills and cover topics more in depth than we could in class. The core idea of covering computer topics in bite size, but thorough, morsels remains the same, but we hope to have a whole new attitude once our brand new Computer Club gets off the ground.

Once a month, we hope to have a group of technology-curious people who want to learn something specific. Someone who knows will demonstrate and explain for the rest of us. After the demo, the group is free to exchange tips, techniques and skills in a social setting. We also want members who are willing to create content for this blog. Imagination is the only limit.

Look for announcements through this blog, the Library website, our Facebook page, and Twitter.

P.S. The Club is open to smart phone, tablet and Star Trek device users as well.

Setting up a free email account

In previous posts we've discussed the mechanics of setting up an email account. Pictures are worth 1,000 words, though, so watch this video as many times as you have to to learn how to fill in the registration form to acquire an account. Please note: When you sign up for an email account, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions Yahoo has spelled out. If you don't want to read the document, fine, but don't complain when they come take away your car (just kidding about the car).
