Tips from the Webmaster!
When are Passwords too secure?
When there is an emergency and no one knows them! Be sure to give someone you trust a list of your User Id's and Passwords in case of emergency.
Did You Know?
If you registered your domains with Network Solutions, they are prepared to honor last wills and testaments. Your executor will have no problems transferring domain names into your heirs names, so be sure to include them in your will.
New/Intermediate User Special Interest Group (SIG)
Remember back when you had just the 1 computer that every member of the household had to share? Things have surely changed! These days you could have multiple pc's, laptops, netbooks, tablets, smart phones, smart TV's, set top boxes, ... Trying to stay in touch with friends and family scattered across the globe. Online shopping, banking, trading, and even healthcare management while trying to stay secure. And you thought that one computer was daunting. Well, that's where the New/Intermediate User SIG comes into play. No one person can figure it all out, but collectively we can cut the digital beast down to size. We share our experiences learned over the "years of tears" to enable each of us to more fully take advantage of our digital devices.
Everyone is encouraged to email questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org or post on . This gives Ray a chance to do a little research.

July 2014 General Membership Meeting
FIELDTRIP!! - Tour of Jefferson Parish Crime Laboratory
On Wednesday, July 2, 2014 the New Orleans Personal Computer Club will take a walking tour of the Jefferson Parish Crime Laboratory at 1233 Westbank Expressway, Bldg G in Harvey. This is an excellent chance to see how this relatively new facility for law enforcement in Jefferson Parish is run. The tour will show their operations, get a peek into different types of investigations, and see the emergency rescue plans for different scenarios. For those of you who are fans of the CSI shows on television, this is real life Crime Scene Investigations.
This tour will start promptly at 6:00 pm and run through 9:00 pm. Don't be late as this promises to be a very different and interesting meeting.... more and to rsvp
Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
JUST FOR THIS MEETING, THE LOCATION HAS BEEN CHANGED!
Please don't show up at Congregation Gates of Prayer for this general membership meeting. We won't be there; you'll be all alone and missing out on a pretty cool event. We, on the other-hand, will be touring the Jefferson Parish Crime Laboratory and we will miss you, but not till the tour is over.
1233 Westbank Expressway, Bldg G
Harvey, LA 70058
Here is a link to a map and directions to help you find your way.
You'll find this link cool if you have on your smartphone.
Finally, if you're the type to key in the coordinates into your trusty GPS device, 29.907378, -90.063379 are the lat and long you'll want to put you at the gate.
Directions to Jefferson Parish Crime Laboratory
The gate on 12th St is the only gate that will be open; the entrances on 8th St are automated security-badge-required which we will not be able to use, and we should also not use the entrance from Westbank Expressway which has a guard shack.
- Exit the Westbank Expressway at Manhattan Blvd and go North
- Turn right on 8th St, the first intersection just past the Best Buy store, and go about three blocks
- Turn right onto Dolhonde St for a half block
- Turn right onto 12th St and go through the open gate
- There will be plenty of open parking to the right
- The Crime Lab building is four stories tall and has a big concrete sign in front of it facing the parking lot
- Go into the building and enter the classroom on the first floor; it is the only room to go into. Our walking tour will be through this building only, visiting the different areas on each of the floors
