Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the tragic events in Christchurch.
At SeniorNet Kapiti, we have a very special new member. His name is Yates, he has his own membership card and he’s the guide dog for Elizabeth East. Elizabeth is visually impaired and she regularly updates us on IT developments for the visually impaired. Yates now attends meetings with Elizabeth and listens attentively to our discussions!
Reminder: When Yates is wearing his walking harness, please don’t engage with him – he’s busy working!
2nd Reminder: If you want to discuss anything with Yates, please ask Elizabeth for permission first… especially if it involves food!!! Continue reading

This is a quick message to all our members who have @gmail addresses….
You’ve probably received a message this week from Google telling you that your Google+ Account is being closed soon and wondered what it’s all about.
Long story short…when you signed up for your Google email address you were also allocated a Google+ Account (it’s like Facebook but it lost the “war”). Google have now decided to close the entire Google+ “Ecosystem” down and they are just letting you know before they delete everything.
Your xxx.yyy@gmail email address WILL NOT BE AFFECTED
We wrote about the demise of Google+ a couple of months ago in this article
If you never ever posted anything to Google+ (and most of you won’t have), then you don’t have to do anything.
If you did post to Google+ and want to keep any of the content, then you need to get on over there now and extract the bits you want to keep and store them elsewhere. Otherwise, DO NOTHING works for you too!
