Online Store is open now.

Here is a Link to the CKCS Store Registration Guide.

CKCS Tech Night - Monday - April 10, 2023 - 7 p.m. In-Person at CKCS

Display Efficiency with multiple monitors.

Presented by Paul Stackhouse

How much time do you spend switching between your browser and Excel and Outlook and YouTube and Word and Facebook? Do you sometimes lose track of which tab has what? Do you find yourself squinting at a screen that has text that has become too small to read? Do you dread travelling with your laptop because its screen is so small? Is the clutter on your desk hiding your mouse, or important documents?

Discussion areas will include choosing, mounting, connecting, and using extra displays. Paul Stackhouse will share why this can be a life changing event. He is also a long time CKCS member. Over the years Paul has held several offices within CKCS: president, vice-president, treasurer, and director. His service goes back to within six months of our founding. He currently is a Programmer Analyst at Asbury University, having retired from Kentucky Educational Television in 2009.

There will be door prizes. Persons attending in-person will have the chance to win one of the 10 CKCS surplus monitors. Winners will need to supply their own cord to connect it to their computer, making this a low-cost way to experiment using multiple displays.

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
  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.
