NORTH WEBSTER — Computers are such an integral part of our lives today it’s hard to imagine functioning without them, but they can also be hard for the average person to understand. What is that pop-up dialogue box asking? Do I click on OK or not? What happens if I click on the wrong thing?
Get answers to your questions at North Webster Community Public Library’s Geek Speak Computer Consulting Series that starts 1 p.m. Thursday, April 18, and will continue the third Thursday each month through July 18.
With over 20 years of computer consulting experience, Ian Crighton, owner of Crighton Technical Services, will share his computer expertise as he discusses a variety of computer topics and issues in language the average person can understand. The April 18 class will focus on computer security.
