Standard and non-standard methods to see if either your hardware or software is failing. 2. Rescuing your data, and 3. Recovering your OS. Among the non-standard methods are (1) using Linux as a diagnostic, repair, and recovery tool; and (2) powerful but not well known tools from Windows. About the Speaker Harry Elder is a lifelong resident of Ulster County. In the early 70's Harry was a radio announcer at Kingston and Poughkeepsie stations, sometimes under the name "Rick Williams". While in radio, Harry became fascinated with electronics, and self-studied it. In 1974 he passed the FCC 1st Class Exam, the highest FCC technical license. Harry then worked at local two- way radio companies. In 1977 he began an almost 30 year career with IBM, working as a Systems Test Technician and, beginning in 1980, as a Software Developer. In addition, he taught others to use the software projects his team developed. Currently, Harry is an adjunct instructor at Ulster County Community College - Continuing Education, and teaches a number of personal computer related courses, including a computer repair course, which focuses on recovering PCs running current versions of Windows. Harry is also an active member of MHCUG - Mid Hudson Computer Users Group. He has presented on various topics at their main monthly meetings, and he edits their newsletter "microChip". Harry also runs a PC Repair and Consulting business, TEK Pro Data. When: 7:30 pm, Monday, Apr 15, 2012 Where: Presentation Room (2d floor, Rm 2023) <-------- !!!
