    Two parts this month:

    At 8:00 and 10:00 am -- Open Q&A - If you have a 'troubled' system, contact Chuck or Gil for a possible 'live, no net' troubleshooting session.

    Jere Minich (APCUG) -- "Tune Up Your Windows PC”

    Making Money on the Internet - 8:00-9:00 am (Again)
    The presentation for July 15th will be session 2 of the Minimum-Cost Internet Marketing Course series. This session will cover initial installation of a WordPress site, along with techniques for "hardening" the site against would-be hackers and script-kiddies, and some general recommendations for themes and plugins. This presentation will be cramming a lot of information in a short time, so it will begin at about 8:05 -- with or without you!

    The presentation will be done remotely via Zoom. NTPCUG members who can't attend the meeting in person may contact Howard@HowardLeeHarkness.com with a request to join the meeting online (requests must be received at least one hour prior to session). The Zoom client is available for Windows, iOS, Linux, and Android.

    Any others who wish to participate in the ongoing beta test should contact Howard at the same email address. The cut-off for beta testers is 20 participants, or August 5th at 7:00am, whichever comes first.

    All presentations in this series will be recorded, and recordings will be made available to all registered beta-testers. Current plans are to do presentations on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays from 8am-9am (1st Saturdays will be online-only, since there is no NTPCUG meeting then), although this may change in August to occur every Saturday, so as not to drag the course development out too long. There are 10 to 12 sessions planned. The exact number of sessions may vary in response to feedback from the beta test participants.

    In addition to access to the recordings, beta-test participants will get free membership in the Course Membership site when it is completed.
