Making a Copy of Your Computer

Freddy Peralta of Kentucky Trade is back

tech night

Long time friend and supporter of the Central Kentucky Computer Society, Freddy Peralta, will be with us on Tech Night this month. He will be giving us proactive steps that we can take in the event our computer is attacked by a virus or crashes, by walking us through what we need to do before the emergency strikes. He will be discussing Acronis, which is touted to be the best back up and recovery software available and will show us how to make a full copy of our computer.

He will also introduce us to some of the latest computer gadgets. In the usual “Freddy style” he will have KyTrade door prizes. To outdo himself, he will be giving away a solid state drive that night. Join us for a fun and informative night. Guests are always welcome.

Changes to Kroger Card 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.

But, Kroger has made changes in the way that the program works that will take effect on September 1.

Kroger now requires all those who wish to have their spending at Kroger generate donations for CKCS to do two things:
1) get a Kroger Plus Card and
2) register on the Kroger website with CKCS as your donation choice.

Step 1 - Most everyone already has a Kroger Plus Card (it has a picture of a tomato on it), but if not you can get one instantly at the office counter in any Kroger store or we have a few at the CKCS front desk.

Step 2 - Use the Kroger website to register your Plus Card number and choose "Central Kentucky Computer Society" as your organization.

Detail instructions for Step 2:

a) go to

b) click on Community Rewards

c) click on "Create an Account" to enroll

d) enter your information: including email address and a new password for this account

e) click Create Account

f) enter your Kroger Plus card number - it is on the both the wallet card and the keyring card

g) Click "Enroll now for Community Rewards"

h) enter the organization name "Central Kentucky Computer Society" or the CKCS number which is 11119

Note that if you get all this correct, then when you make purchases at Kroger your checkout receipts will have Central Kentucky Computer Society written at the bottom.

Your existing Kroger Gift cards can still be used to buy groceries but after September 1 will no longer generate donations to 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 disk drive or whole computer to CKCS on any Wednesday between 10 AM and 1 PM or Thursday between 1 PM and 3 PM or to the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
