Safe and Secure!!! What, Me Worry?
The Computer Club of Oklahoma City wishes to invite you to attend our regular monthly meeting on Thursday evening, March 17th, at 7:00 PM. We will be in Suite 201 of the 3000 Building. If you are not familiar with this meeting location, please look at the map located on our Website: http://www.ccokc.org/ .
This month we are privileged to have David Robbins visit with us about the programs he uses on his personal computer to insure (as much as possible) a safe operating experience. He will discuss virus protection, spam protection and other nuances that may come our way when working (or playing, for that matter) on our computers. David prefers to talk about real life situations that he is familiar with, rather than review software that he has only experimented with. Those of you who know David recognize that he is a no-nonsense type of guy and insists that even minor situations must be handled in a professional manner.
David is our current club President. In my experiences with him the previous three years, I have found him to be very meticulous in looking after the club’s facilities and insuring that unlicensed software is not installed. I worked for a guy like this. He essentially said, “Segler, if your engineers have any software on their computers that is not licensed for their use, I’m not going to pay a fine or go to jail for them. They better keep their computers clean.” Needless to say, no one spent any jail time on his watch.
It has become almost impossible to continuously protect our computers from interruption by others. They make it a full time job to harass us. I receive messages that say, “You blocked my email.” No, I don’t respond.
Invite your friends to join us for this meeting. I think you will find it to be interesting and educational. David is good at fielding questions.
See you at the meeting. Troy Segler
P.S. If you know anyone in our community that would be willing to present a program for us, please provide their name and telephone and/or e-mail address to me. My e-mail address is email@example.com. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
If you have not attended a General Session recently, attend one soon and bring a guest!
Coffee and refreshments will be available for the taking and soft drinks are available at a cost of $.50. Invite a friend to join you for this meeting. I wish to thank all those who have regularly attended these meetings. If you have a recommendation for a specific topic or speaker, please drop me a note in the Program Vice President’s mail box just around the corner from the refrigerator.
