Beginning Computer Concepts

Today we started at the beginning, "What is a File?"  Then moved on to Folders, then Cut Copy and Past, and finally put them together to do a simple backup.  Lastly, talked about Synctoy for the next time you want to update your backup.

(Yes, that's Dale Junior on the first slide - Jodi got a 'hot pass' and wandered around Dover International Speedway during the NASCAR race.)

Here's the link to the GWX Control panel <link>.  This will suppress the Get Windows 10 nag and stop Windows from downloading Windows 10 in the background.  (Bad Microsoft! Don't download multi-gigabytes to our computer without asking!!  <link>)

The link to download Microsoft's Synctoy:  <link>  It's free.  We like this for beginner's backup, very easy to set-up and use, and it's "stupid simple" to restore files.

Radio Newark

A group of amateurs is establishing a new community radio station in Newark. The radio mast is up and they will be transmitting shortly. WIZU – 99.9 FM. Who are they? Just Google “Science Radio Station” – and they’ll be the second link, http://radionewark.org right behind PBS.
