You just brought that shiny new computing device home – Now what?
10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

You just brought that shiny new computing device home – Now what? Computer expert Dr. Pierre Darmon will share his 30 years of experience.

You just brought that shiny new desktop, laptop, or tablet home, or even a new smartphone. You can't wait to start using it. Should you simply use it right out of the box? The answer is emphatically and unmistakably NO. Why? There are numerous steps you should be taking BEFORE you put your new computing device into service, or it could come back to bite you.

Come and find out what they are. We will discuss backups, recovery CD, updates, configuration, user accounts, what to do with trialware, what not to do with freeware, antivirus, Wi-Fi, browsers, and more.

Dr. Pierre Darmon has been in the IT industry for over 30 years. He held many management and non-management positions at IBM, where he worked in all 6 major business units of IBM, including Research and the recently created Watson Health. He helped develop various technologies, including data mining, virtual reality, integration solutions for the industrial sector, and Watson, among others.

Current President of the Westchester PC Users Group (WPCUG), Dr. Darmon is a PC/Mac Computer Support and Education Consultant, serving small businesses and individuals.

 Title:  Paper: Paging Through History  by, Mark Kurlansky  

"Paper holds the world together. It wipes our foreheads, cleans up our spills, bags our groceries and disposes of our waste products. It floods into our ­mailboxes at home and across our desks at work. And it’s not going away anytime soon.  A sheet of paper can be a work of art, its surface rich with life and visual interest. Timothy Barrett, the MacArthur fellow and master paper maker, moved to Japan to learn how to make washi: a translucent paper so delicate it hardly seems material. In more recent years, he has studied the solid white paper, made from cloth rags, that Europeans used for books from the 14th century on. These papers, he says, “had a kind of crackle and made you want to touch them.”  NYTimes Review 2016
