Hard Disk Sentinel, Gabe Goldberg. Gabe will give a short presentation and demo of Hard Dick Sentinel (HDS). All members of APCUG groups are eligible for the 50% discount. HDS monitors drive status, including health, temperature, and all S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) values for all hard disk and solid-state drives. And it measures the disk transfer speed in real-time, which can benchmark or detect possible hard disk failures, and performance degradations. It is the perfect data protection solution: it can prevent drive failure and SSD/HDD data loss because it has the most sensitive disk health rating system, which is extremely sensitive to disk problems.
If you have questions for Gabe, please put them in the Chat Box with a G before the question.

Apple and Samsung Health Apps, Jerry Rogan & Bill James. We can track and maintain our health by using our watches compatible with the popular Apple or Samsung Health apps. They can become our digital assistants.

Jerry Rogan will begin the workshop by giving a presentation and demo on Apple's health apps; Bill James will follow with the same for the Samsung health apps.

Please put your questions in the Chat Box with a J or B before the question, and we will go through them after the two presentations.

Learning Linux - Getting started using Linux from the Windows users' point of view
John Kennedy & Cal Esneault. This will be the first of a 3-part series specifically for Windows users who want to learn more about Linux while still using Windows. In part one of the series, Introducing Linux, we'll begin with John sharing what software Windows users could/should be running to make the "slide" over to Linux easy. Then John will show the step-by-step process for downloading the Linux Mint ISO (installation file) and another program called Etcher (program to make live USBs) onto your Windows machine. John will finish up his portion of the workshop by taking you through creating a live USB with Mint on it. Next, Cal takes over and will show you the step-by-step process of getting your Windows computer to boot to the live USB so you can run the Linux Mint operating system without making ANY changes to your Windows operating system. Finally, Cal will finish this first session by giving you a tour of the live distro and what things you might need to check.
