Tech Night - Monday, April 13 at 7:00 p.m.

Registering a Domain Name at Godaddy

by CKCS Member - Paul Stackhouse

tech night

Paul Stackhouse is joining us for April Tech Night. Paul has been a member of CKCS since early 1985 with much time contributed as a leader and instructor. He has extensive professional experience as Director of Web and Multimedia Services with KET, a Senior Developer with Wilmore Computer Associates, and Information Technology Manager at Frontier Nursing University.

Paul's presentation will cover what an Internet domain is, why one might want their own domain, how to use GoDaddy to inexpensively get one, how to set up an e-mail forward from a new domain e-mail address to your existing email account and how to forward any web traffic to another (perhaps Facebook) address.

Have you been wanting to set up a domain name? Would having www.myname.com or myfirstname@mylastname.com be helpful?

Paul will do a step-by-step demonstration of setting up the domain name for a member of the audience who would like to pay the $20 fee to register a domain name.

Join us for this informative demonstration and, as always, guests are welcome. If you cannot join us, then tune in to the live stream to see and hear it!

Mystery Topic

As always, you are invited to bring a laptop to follow along and take notes.



Changes to Kroger Card 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.

But, Kroger has made changes in the way that the program works that will take effect on September 1.

Kroger now requires all those who wish to have their spending at Kroger generate donations for CKCS to do two things:
1) get a Kroger Plus Card and
2) register on the Kroger website with CKCS as your donation choice.

Step 1 - Most everyone already has a Kroger Plus Card (it has a picture of a tomato on it), but if not you can get one instantly at the office counter in any Kroger store or we have a few at the CKCS front desk.

Step 2 - Use the Kroger website to register your Plus Card number and choose "Central Kentucky Computer Society" as your organization.

Detail instructions for Step 2:

a) go to https://www.kroger.com

b) click on Community Rewards

c) click on "Create an Account" to enroll

d) enter your information: including email address and a new password for this account

e) click Create Account

f) enter your Kroger Plus card number - it is on the both the wallet card and the keyring card

g) Click "Enroll now for Community Rewards"

h) enter the organization name "Central Kentucky Computer Society" or the CKCS number which is 11119

Note that if you get all this correct, then when you make purchases at Kroger your checkout receipts will have Central Kentucky Computer Society written at the bottom.

Your existing Kroger Gift cards can still be used to buy groceries but after September 1 will no longer generate donations to 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 disk drive or whole computer to CKCS on any Wednesday between 10 AM and 1 PM or Thursday between 1 PM and 3 PM or to the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
