The people have spoken! They must have Gadget Class!
With all these devices being thrown at us, wouldn’t it be nice to have someone actually show us how to use them? Are we supposed to know this stuff by osmosis or what? (For that matter, nobody ever showed us how to do Taxes either, but that’s another story.)
What would you like to learn?
I have been fielding a lot of questions recently about whether I teach classes on Macs. The answer is yes, and the time has come for me to put it together!
I am trying to determine the scope and form of the classes. I am thinking that it won't be 'just' about Macs, but about our Digital Gadgets in general.
To help me in planning, please take this poll. Thanks!
It’s been a while
It’s been some time since my last Newsletter release, and some folks have been wondering what’s up in the land of Make Your Mac sing! I’d like to take a moment to catch you up on things going on at Apple, at MYMS!, as well as other odd ’n ends.
If you are looking to have a new website built,
then I'd like to tell you about Joomla!
Joomla! is a one of the most popular website platforms today. Joomla! is a CMS or "Content Management System". It is open-source, free software. It is standards compliant and mobile device friendly.
Mobile-friendliness, also called 'Responsive Design' is more than just a convenience. These days it is a necessity, because more and more people are visiting websites on their phones and tablets. It will really help your Google rankings. Last year saw the infamous 'Google Mobile-geddon'; when Google changed the way it ranks websites, favoring those that are Responsive. So if your site is not responsive, odds are that it will not see page one in search results.
Part of my work in Web-related services is as Webmaster for PVMA Deerfield.
For some time we have been looking to migrate to a new machine two of our most important sites, American Centuries and Raid on Deerfield: The Many Stories of 1704. Our current Dell machine is 13 (!) years old, and while it is still operational, we know that it's days are numbered. Of even more concern was the aging server software running on it.
