SLVCC Presentations 2022 / 23

Oct 26th - Geocaching: The Sunland Village Way.  Our "Welcome Back Members" session on Oct 26th will include a presentation on geocaching in SLV.  This is an opportunity to learn what geocaching is and how to participate using it in Sunland Village.  It's different here in The Village - because we are governed by our Community HOA rules, so we have modified searching using restricted parameters.  This PDF presentation will explain it to you.

Nov 02nd - Geocaching: The Global Village Way.   On Nov 2nd we will to use an actual geocaching app.  This is required if you're look for your treasures outside of Sunland Village.  Geocaching can take place globally in the city, suburbs, forest, the desert, parks, etc.  It truly is a global recreational activity, and something you can enjoy alone, with a group, our also your grandchildren.  Get ready for this presentation by pre-loading the geocache app onto your smart phone (iOS or Android).  

The Geocache App icon looks like this         .  Go to your Apple Store or Google Play Store.  Download and then create an account:

Suggestion Box Items: Sharing Google Calendars.   We had a really good discussion on the 16th of Nov.  One item in particular that got momentum was Sharing Google Calendars.  Something my wife and I do to ensure we don't overbook when transportation is limited or if we both need to attend.  This works great for family, partners, spouses, and even small businesses.  This PDF explains the setup.  Enjoy.

Nov 23rd - What Is The Cloud.   Well, That's an easy question, but more difficult of an answer.  Hopefully we covered it well today during this presentation and our follow-up discussion.  What does The Universe and The Cloud have in common?  They are both architecturally constructed very similarly.  One is referred to as "The Cosmic Web"; the other "The World Wide Web".   Hmmmmm.....Curious?

Nov 30th - So - What is Anti-Virus.   Anti-virus is an important part of device security (along with firewalls and vpns).  This presentation discusses all three and hopefully gives enough information for you to understand what they all do.  In the cyber world, "Security" plays a very large portion in your protection.  Be safe while online and understand why. 

Configuring TotalAV Anti-virus.   For those who have downloaded and installed TotalAV Anti-virus software, this is an instruction set for setting the configuration pages on your device.  There are bits of explanation as well to help you along.

Dec 07th - Trusting Technology.   Technology and the Internet has gone through exciting advancements:  Online Shopping, Immediate Emails and Text Messages, GPS Mapping, etc.  Unfortunately, there are always those who try to take advantage of others - whether into hacking accounts, money scams, and various other methods.  This is a presentation from Techwise - Daniel Edlen to help show you how to watch out for technology predators.

Dec 14th - Real or Not Real.   We all receive emails that make us wonder whether they are from a real organization or not.  Is it True that someone is going to charge my credit card, send me a prize, - OR - are they trying to scam me out of money, get my bank account information, or put a virus on my device?  But - if the email is Real, what happens if I delete it without responding to it.  Hopefully this presentation helps you a bit to determine whether the email is REAL or NOT REAL.

Jan 04 - The Fry's Grocery App.   This is a presentation on understanding the newly revised Fry's Grocery Store App.  Some things have changed and this will keep you updated. 

Jan 11th - Protect Your Credit Cards.   There is a new tool out recently that can READ, Store and Emulate your credit card, employee card, garage remote control and other similar devices.  It can be purchased at Walmart and via Amazon.  We need to be more careful than ever.  It's call "The Flipper Zero".  Learn about it and how to protect yourself.

Jan 18th - Wireless Home Internet VS Wired.   We are seeing an emergence of 5G wireless technology.  Cell phones are faster, and data transfer speeds highly improved.  We now have access to 5G Home Internet Gateways.  What's the difference between wired and wireless home internet?  Let's have a look.
