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).

It won’t be long now before we see the latest update to Windows 10, the Autumn version, also known as 1709.
That will then be the fourth update in just over the 2 years that Windows 10 has been around, and you can expect future updates at roughly the same rate in the past.
This new update when released can be expected to have loads of changes both for the users and the developers.
So, what can we look forward to? The crystal ball points to elements of Microsoft’s new ‘Fluent Design’ being added, which should add performance and user improvements, including easier resizing for the varying devices on which you use Windows 10 as your operating system, i.e. whether you use a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, and smoother transitions.
