CKCS Tech Night - Monday - January 14 at 7 pm

Futuristic Technology in BMW Automobiles

Presented by Austin Werner, BMW Genius Tech at Don Jacobs

The January Tech Night is going to give us a peak into the future of cutting edge technology in automobiles. BMW is a leader when it comes to new and innovative design, and Austin Werner, BMW Genius Tech at Don Jacobs, is going to show us this latest technology.

Among the futuristic designs that BMW already has in its flagship cars is Heads Up Display that projects information directly onto the bottom of the BMW windshield to help you keep your eyes on the road at all times. BMW Night Vision uses a thermographic camera integrated into the front grille to pick up infrared radiation being emitted by living obstacles. We will also be learning about the new ways to control the vehicle climate options, audio controls, communication and navigation systems.

You do not have to be in the market for a new car to be curious about the newest car technology. Whether your budget will handle it now, or you just want to know what will be coming down the road in your price range, or are just interested in cool technology, this Tech Night is for you.

We hope that the weather will cooperate and you will have a chance to see one or two of these cars up close in the back parking lot.



Kroger Community Rewards Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

If you are not participating in Community Rewards, you can sign up to have Kroger donate a portion of every purchase you make to CKCS.

Steps to create your Kroger account:

  1. Go to the Kroger website at https://www.kroger.com
  2. Put the mouse on Savings and Rewards to see the options
  3. Click on Kroger Community Rewards
  4. Scroll down until you see "I'm a Customer"
  5. Click on "View Details" to go to the Sign In screen
  6. Next, click on Create an Account
  7. Fill in the requested information (see note 1 and 2 below)
  8. Near the bottom of the screen click on Create Account

Note 1: You can go to most any email service website and create a new email address just for your Kroger account. Kroger will send you emails frequently and will offer the opportunity for receiving a lot of emails with coupons, etc.

Note 2: Not your email password, but create a new password just for Kroger.

You can do this anytime during the year, but right now is best for CKCS.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. Shortly after you enroll, you will see a message on your Kroger purchase receipts, indicating that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS for you. The size of the gift is proportional to the amount of your purchase.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
