We are a nonprofit computer club located in Westchester County New York. Our goal is to increase the computer knowledge of our 200 plus members. Our General Meetings are held once a month. We also have over a dozen monthly workshops and discuss everything from beginner topics to the Android operating system, Excel and Website Design. Another special workshop is Westchester PC-Renew where our members refurbish donated computers & provide them free of charge to the community. Please join us!

ukiyoe         

Our David Lerner will provide us information about Ukiyo-e, the delightful and beautiful
Japanese wood block printing art form.

The method was used to produce art prints, ads, religious books, travel books, sex books, and many other types of printed material.

In Japan, social and political circumstances
fostered this art form, which was mass produced from the Middle Ages to modern times. When it reached the West, Asian printing technology set off the European Renaissance. For a variety of technical and social reasons, this technology did not have the same impact in Asia.

Today the Internet is the Information
Superhighway. In earlier times, writing and printing caused dramatic social, economic, and political change—as dramatic as the Internet now.

David will show many delightful samples of this art form and put them in historical context.


All are welcome.

John Moore will provide a well-rounded presentation on tiny and inexpensive computers, often called micro-controllers.

He will demonstrate how you would interface
with such a unit and the various capabilities it
has.

These units can run under the Linux operating
systems on tiny computers called Raspberry
Pi. We will be able to see the tools and techniques used to get these units functioning and providing useful operations.

Operation Clean Slate
In the last several years, the use of malicious software (malware) by online criminals has emerged as a global cybersecurity threat. Of the available intrusion devices, the “bot,” or Web robot, is particularly pervasive, allowing an attacker to take control remotely of a compromised computer or computers.
