News and Upcoming Events





Tech Night - October 13 at 7 p.m.

Twitter and Pic Collage

Bob Brown and Darlene Mosley will explain how Twitter works and why we all need to join. In fact, since its beginning in 2006 it has been evolving. It has gone from a way to share updates with friends to what the Washington Post describes as a way to "connect with your friends - and other fascinating people. Get in-the-moment updates on the things that interest you. And watch events unfold in real time, from every angle." In no time you will be tweeting, or at least know what people mean when they say it!

Joe Dietz will do a demonstration of Pic Collage App. Pic Collage allows you to create amazing collages using your photos that you have taken or downloaded from Facebook, Twitter and more. Once you have finished making your collage, you can share it to Pic Collage, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and also email it! His demonstration will be a simple introduction to the app. In just a few steps you can make great collages on your phone or tablet. Later in the month Joe will be teaching an expanded version featuring all its capabilities at his Digital Photography Special Interest Group on October 28th.

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.
