Phoenix Metro RV Park Computer Users Group (PMRVPCUG)

We meet every Tuesday Night at 7PM to cuss, discuss, and learn about all types of Computers.

Each night focuses on different topics regarding what you want to learn about computers, whether it is basic stuff, or specifics about how to do things on your computer.

2017-2018 Presentations

Summer 2017 Meetings

Well, the Snowbirds are leaving in flocks, so the summer sessions will now be ongoing at Space C-24, and we need to have a small meeting to discuss what we're going to do while we wait for the birds to return again in the fall. Contact Bob if you're interested in meeting to discuss this and participate.

Future Meetings

We're always looking for new ideas or topics to talk about at the Meetings, so if you have something that you'd like to see or present that you think would be appropriate for the Users Group, please contact (Computer)Bob at Space C24 to make arrangements.

Linux Workshop

For thousands of years, people have been herded into using things that don't quite work, just like Windoze Users, and Linux is now a viable replacement for that horrible Operating System and Desktop that you were forced to purchase with your computer. While it's not for everyone, it's perfect for people who use their computers to:

  • Browse the Internet, receive and send eMails, manage their financial accounts online, shop or sell online, communicate with friends and family, play online games, or do their Geneology,
  • Play offline games.
  • Create and print documents like letters, faxes, spreadsheets, greeting cards, and labels.
  • Record and Play music and video files.
  • Set up and manage home automation.

Advantages include:

  • It's FREE: It doesn't cost you anything to download OR use it. EVER!
  • It's SAFE: NO Viruses are created for it, so you don't need an antivirus program.
  • It's FAST: Your slow computer will immediately run faster, guaranteed.
  • It's EASY: You can try it out on your existing computer before you install it without messing up your current system. If you decide to install it, simply click the install icon on the desktop, answer a few questions, and it does the rest.
  • It's FULLY SUPPORTED: No fake technicians either. Linux is supported by the worlds largest support group, based on the Internet, and providing all the support you need for FREE! No worrying about whether the tech support person is a scammer, because there are hundreds of thousands of people around the world that you can double-check an answer with.

Travel Considerations

We'll be helping you get your computers ready for travel, backing up your data, talking about WiFi Hotspots and connecting into them, links and resources for repair and upkeep of your RV and vehicles to keep them in top condition for the long drive home, or for their summer storage here in the Park.

Protecting Your Data & Assets

We will talk about how to back up your data, pictures, etc from ANY of your devices to something that is safe and secure.

Even if you're not interested in the evening's topic, you're always welcome to bring down your PC, Laptop, Tablet, or Phone to the meeting and ask for help with any of the items below, OR if you have a particular problem not listed here:

  • How to download a YouTube Video to your computer - Karaoke Video
