Last May Open Lab

Don't forget about the last Tech Open Lab in May on Tuesday, May 24, 2-3pm.  Only one person has signed up so far, so there's plenty of room.  Don't forget to check with bonnie to make sure there's sufficient floor coverage before you commit.

Things Heard in Open Lab

just a few fun things i heard while learning together

"This is what I call computer hell." Aesta

"That was the wildest night upstairs I've ever had." Janice

"Patience, patience." Amy

"You must do a victory lap!" Carrie

color printer upstairs

I find the color printer upstairs jams alot. I found that the paper tray has too much paper.  I pull out several sheets and then push the button on the right side of the printer to open the cartridge holders.  I push it firmly shut and guess what it unjams.  See me if this is confusing.

Don't Panic!

Gentle reader of the Smoky Blog,
I want to take this opportunity to assure you that the July 1st competencies deadline is not a reason for panic. You only need to have the curiosity and willingness! I suggest checking out DVDs on excel, word, power point and watching tutorials. It's really all about knowing where to go for help. Locate the help button on any program, such as excel and become familiar with the index so you know where to look for help. I know we are all busy but the buddy system is also a great way to learn. Ask one of the techs or staff who knows power point or whatever you want to brush up on and plan a time, even a half hour together to go over the basics. We are here for you and learn as much by your questions as anything else!
