Free Computer Q&A at Third Place Commons
We meet in-person at the Stadler Meeting Room in the Third Place Commons, just north of Seattle in Town Center at Lake Forest Park (directions and time below). We offer these small group sessions as a community service.
Typically sessions are on the fourth Sunday of the month.
We are now in our 12th season of sessions. Usually the session begins with a presentation on a topic of general interest. Then we spend the rest of our time chatting about the questions you bring to the room or submit in advance. Details are below:
Next Session: September 26, 2:00 PM
What's the deal with VPN?
VPN or Virtual Private Networking is being trumpeted as the latest, greatest solution for your security and private. Is it? The answer depends on your circumstances and how you intend to use it. Let’s separate the hype from the sensibility surround the use of VPN.
Q&A sessions are intended to be in-personal events. Should that change due to public health concerns, a Zoom link will be shown here.
Some of the topics covered since 2011 include:
Your Computer Questions and Concerns
Either submit your questions in advance or bring them to the session to
share. You can also bring your laptop to show problem or illustrate your
question. Highly technical or system-specific questions may be beyond the scope of the session and require a separate one-on-one session. Submit your question in advance if you aren't sure whether it can be answered during the Q&A.
