New Course and Workshop Booking Number

The Committee has decided to provide the Enrolments Coordinator with a mobile phone that will become our primary phone number for booking all Classes and Workshops. This has been done for several reasons including freeing up the Coordinator’s personal phone for private use, ease of handover when the coordinator travels/is unavailable, a separate voicemail for SeniorNet messages and the ability to offer WhatsApp calls.

The new Course and Workshop booking number is 021 169 6256 and takes effect immediately. Please do not use Elaine’s private phone for any further SeniorNet calls – all our documentation (paper and website) has been updated with the new number. WhatsApp users can also call or message this phone directly. Continue reading

New Workshop: “Are you thinking of buying?”

You might find that your old printer is playing up. Should you try to get it fixed? If you decide to buy a new one, you notice that you can spend anything from $80 to $500 – how do you decide?  And, what brand to buy?

What if your old PC has finally had it. Should you buy another, in which case how much should you spend, what do you look for, how do you understand all the specs? Or, should you be getting a laptop instead? Or perhaps a tablet? How to decide? Continue reading

New Term

Courses and workshops for the 4thTerm began on Monday 16 October. See the web site www.kapiti.seniornet.co.nz. for the details and times and if you plan to attend a course then make sure that you enrol with  Elaine 04 905 3744 ( preferred option) as soon as possible.

If you have already completed a course and need some additional help to clarify a few points we are, as always, delighted to help at one of our How Do I…? workshop sessions, where the charge varies depending on how long we spend helping you (max $10 per hour).

Please Note: The email migration discussed below cannot be handled effectively at How Do I…? Workshops. Please enrol for the Vodafone Email Migration Workshop (a single session workshop costing a paltry $15) instead.
