General meeting - Leader: JB Burke

The December 2020 Prescott Computer Society Zoom meeting will feature a Festive mashup of material from Phil Ball and JB Burke. Just to be different, Phil will go first with his ever-popular PC and Windows 10 Tips & Tricks, and anything else he chooses to showcase. Phil has been shortchanged time-wise at the General Meetings so often in the past that we decided he deserved the chance to present without the dreaded time constraints.

After Phil (if any time remains) JB will finish the show with a carefully vetted and highly polished selection of entertaining, educational, and enlightening material from the wonderful world of the internet. How many websites are there now to draw from? Turns out there are between 1.6 and 1.9 billion (but only about 400 million active). Still, he says, enough sites to work with.

Don’t miss the last PCS Zoom spectacular of the year.

Membership Info

Fun Stuff

A typical Q&A meeting chaired by some of our favorite PCS members. It's known as a "Stump The Geeks" session which is always enjoyed by all those who attend.

We often hold Question and Answer sessions at General meetings where our members attempt to "Stump The Geeks" with their questions about computer and smartphone problems and other related issues.

Do the geeks ever get stumped? Of course, once in a while they do but we all appreciate the very interesting and informative discussions that are held. I guess you'll just have to come to a meeting to see for yourself.

Due to the Coronavirus all Prescott Computer Society meetings will be held online.
