So you think just having a will is good enough? David Shulman will walk you through the pitfalls of dying without preparing your digital life for the “afterlife.” He will pose some crucial questions you SHOULD deal with right now (BUT would prefer not to).

~Do you think having a will and a person with Power of Attorney is enough?

~How do you avoid messing up your kids, relatives, friends, and the causes and organizations you have supported during your life?

~Will your online life be as private as you wish?

~How to deal with your DIGITAL legacy?

~Are your information assets safe and in the control of those you intend?

~Can you prevent your online accounts from falling into the wrong hands?

~What will happen to all your pictures?

~Have you prepared your ON LINE afterlife?

~How can you make the correct moves now to avoid adding great trouble and ongoing difficulty to your survivors and the organizations you supported?

David, our own Weekly Update co-editor, teacher, sailor, former tech hardware installer, and board member, will pose questions to ponder so you can cope with the ongoing effects of the digital world we are sliding into. He will provide resources and sources for information.

‘WiFi radio’ as a range-extender


March 7, 2019 @ 7 pm

Keller Williams Realty
120 Bloomingdale Rd. ****location map***
White Plains, NY 10605


Plan now to attend!


Need to share an Internet-like connection across
two or more sites or buildings? A solution is
“WiFi radio,” which tech guru Rob Caluori will
explain and explore at the March 7 general meeting. WiFi radio has greater range than
ordinary WiFi. It unleashes the potential of WiFi
to go beyond your four walls, beam a WiFi signal
on the other side of your property for that security camera or shed, and even can connect directly across to buildings without using the internet (useful in an emergency!).

Rob Caluori has worked at Westchester Library
System since 2007 where he currently serves as
the director of information technology. He brings
experience from various areas of IT from working
in the medical, financial, and library industries.
He’s a member of local HAM radio club Westchester Emerg Comm Assn (WECA.org).
Rob holds MS degrees from Pace University in
Information Systems and SUNY Albany in
Information Science as well as a BS in Information Systems from Mercy College.

Operation Clean Slate

In the last several years, the use of malicious software (malware) by online criminals has emerged as a global cybersecurity threat. Of the available intrusion devices, the “bot,” or Web robot, is particularly pervasive, allowing an attacker to take control remotely of a compromised computer or computers.
