Feb 26, 2024 Golden Gate Computer Society: Hodgepodge of Tech Tips for Everyone

We’ve presented at the Golden Gate Computer Society several times in the past. Initially we were there in person because we lived in our RV and traveled the country. Whenever we found ourselves in California we would stop by Marin County and visit with GGCS. This time we are in Florida, so we will be presenting using the Zoom meeting platform. Here are the slides for the presentation, and below that is our video recording from the meeting.
