Mac classes - October 2012

So much for getting these newsletters out on the first of the month... Sheesh, anyone know why all our lives have gotten so busy all of the sudden?? Mine sure has... Anyway on to the details:

 On Saturday, October 13th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be offering a class covering Email & Address Book on your Mac. This class will cover all the intricacies of email (using Apple's Mail program) and contact-management (using Apple's Address Book program).

Ever wonder what the Bcc field is for, or how to make an email that looks colorful and professional instead of simple black-on-white text? Have you been frustrated by the complexity of creating Groups in your Address Book, and then struggled to send a message to a large group without having the message fail? This class will cover all that and more... Cost is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. No sign-up necessary; it's open to drop-ins, so come if you can!       

 On Saturday, October 27th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be revisiting my in-depth class on the iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch. WIth the release of the iPhone 5, I figured it was time to revisit my class on Apple's "iDevices", since they just keep getting better. The iPhone 4S has gotten much cheaper, then there's the new third-generation iPad, not to mention the iPod Touch, they all continue to set standards that the rest of the industry struggles to match. And on top of all that, iOS 6 has just arrived as well!

Whether you've had one of these game-changers for years, are just now jumping on the "iOS" bandwagon with a new iPhone/iPad, or it's simply time for you to find out what all the fuss is about, this class will teach you everything you need to know about these amazing devices. Cost for this class is also $20, and it is held at the Ridgway Town Hall. As above, no sign-up is necessary, drop-ins are welcome!

 The regular FREE "Overview of Mac OS X" class, which takes place on the last Wednesday of every month, and that means this month it happens on Wednesday, October 31st from 5-7 p.m. These overview classes are held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library. There are only eight seats available, 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).

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)!

Have a lovely October everyone!
