April 7 Clubcast is Now Available: 22nd meeting: My Girls Visit the Club Meeting, but Our Audio Stream was Broken

April 8th, 2015 by

Hi Clubbers!

Sorry about the first 45 seconds (sounds ugly.) You may want to adjust your volume (for some reason it record very high.)

Thanks for making my kids feel so welcome. They are tablet maniacs and spent the whole meeting playing MineCraft and talking with themselves. If anyone need info on MineCraft ask the kids.

It was a good meeting with nice people, but we never did get an audio stream working.

We talked about about Roku and MachTV and Power line network extenders. Also, Jim brought up the topic of capacitor boxes that (again) needs more research from me. I think he’s challenging me (grin). Also, had an interesting discussion of propane explosions.

Chester prompted a discussion on things that will cause a PC to slow down over time. Also, what’s the different between restart vs shutdown and the difference between old windows vs Win8, 8.1, and 10.

Gary prompted a discussion on missing drive letters under windows for USB mass storage devices. Why it doesn’t also have the same drive letter, or missing drive letter, and how to change the drive letter.

Linda prompted a discussion on Android 4.4 vs Android 5.

If you weren’t with us then your only chance to hear the meeting is this podcast.

You can subscribe to our feed and get our regular meeting on iTune just search the iTunes store for “The San Carlos Computer Club”.

Thanks for tuning in with us.

I’ll see you next Tuesday.

Tech On!

December 16 Clubcast is Now Available: 11th Meeting: A Little Twitter, A Little Network Solutions, A Lot of Roku and some Credit/ATM card experiences

December 16th, 2014 by

Happy Holidays To all our Clubbers!

Our last meeting was a favorite, and  great way going away for me. We had about 21 clubbers, and a lot of talk about Roku. Also, I updated folks about Network Solutions finally reversing the credit card charge without me having to anymore work. Yay! Mike shared his daughter’s car rental resolutions attributed to twitter and the Global Conversation. Another Yay! for twitter; keeping businesses honest.

I must apologize for how late this recording is. I’ve gone off on holiday with my family, and have only now had the time to get this on the internet. Also, I won’t be at the next meeting. Lucky, Linda has volunteered to be our guest host in my stead, and she’s got some good topics in mind. If you are still in San Carlos, then,YES!,  we do have a meeting on December 23.

 

I wish everyone, their friends and their family, a great holiday. I should be back on the 30th. Until then, Tech On!

December 2 Clubcast is Now Available: Ninth meeting: VPNs (again) Roku/Netflix, ChromeBox/Book, Smart TVs, Black Friday sales, and even a Spanish lesson at the beginning

December 2nd, 2014 by

Hi Clubbers,

I hope everyone had a good holiday. I hope it was ful of friends, family, and turkey.

We started recording our meeting a little early today. The conversation is very random and includes some Spanish lessons. If our pre-meeting dialog is too much for you, then just fast forward to the start of our meeting (at 7mins, 45seconds.)

We had a lot of people join us this morning. Even my folks showed up. And, for no agenda, we sure found a lot to talk about. Chromebox, Chromebooks, Roku, FireTV, Chromecast,  smartTV, Black  Friday shopping, VPNs, PhotoShop, and even more.

It was an awesome ninth meeting. If you missed it, then you can hear the recording from the link below.

You can join us at Tequila’s or you can tune in on Tuesdays (9:15-10:15am AZ time) with our chat-room and live audio stream found at http://sccClub.org.  If you want to receive this recording in iTunes then search the iTunes store for ‘The San Carlos Computer Club’.

Thanks for listening. Please leave comments and rate us in iTunes.

Tech On!

Great Primer Article “What the Heck is a Roku (or Apple TV or Amazon Fire) and Why Do I Need One?”

April 15th, 2014 by

I just came across this article from Yahoo!TECH. It’s a good primer into your options for devices to stream videos from the internet to your TV. It covers all the options we’ve talked about in club. I think it’s a recommended read for everyone in our club.

What the Heck is a Roku (or Apple TV or Amazon Fire) and Why Do I Need One?.

Last Meeting was March 25, 2014. Meetings at Tequila’s. Live Stream starts at 9:15 on Tuesdays, and the Chat-room is always available.

Bring any computer/technology questions, stories, experiences, etc. to contribute to the discussion. If you have any experiences with  Apple Airplay I would like to hear your stories.

Also, here’s some Cool New Stuff:

Netflix support info (from the Feb. 18, 2014 meeting)

February 18th, 2014 by

Hi Everybody,

It’s club day again. I come with some new roku/netflix experience that concludes that Netflix is not supported on Roku in Mexico.

Here is a link to a netflix support page that vaguely refers to this:
https://help.netflix.com/article/en/node/510?ba=GSButtonClick&q=roku%20region.

So this means no Netflix on Roku without VPN. Bummer.

Anyway, come join us at Tequila’s at 9:15am. We’ll cover this topic and more. Please bring your questions. If you can’t join us, then tune-in at our website http://sccClub.org during the meeting for the audio live stream, or later in the week after I’ve posted the recording.

Thanks,

Scott Stimson, director International Computer Solutions (internationalcs.net)
