News

Another successful, smooth give-away was held Nov. 10 with our extraordinary volunteers: Hart, Sean, Susan and Howard. 41 families were able to take home Windows XP loaded computers to help their children in K-8 learn better and become comfortable with technology. Thanks to all our supporters.

Little Geeks gave away close to 40 laptops at the end of September to our students in grade 9 and above to equip them for the high school success. The laptops, donations from the TD CanadaTrust and the York School are very important to help our older students level the playing field.

June 22, 2013 heralded another successful give-away at the St. Andrews United Church. 88 families were able to take home their "new" refurbished computer to help their children be more successful at school. Thanks to our volunteers, Nadia, Gabe and Hart for working so hard through the whole day, and thanks to our donors for all their support.

FAQs

FAQs for Donors

YES - we prefer laptops.  For our clients, they are smaller and do not take up as much desk space in too-frequently cramped homes.  We reserve our limited number of laptops - when we have them - for teens in higher grades.  

YES - we do accept one-off computers from individuals.  Please drop it off at our supporting partner, BeachMac, at 2196 Queen St., East.  If you are dropping off a PC - maybe you need an iMac?

YES - we prefer corporate computers - they are much easier to re-image as they use the same driver sets

YES - we would love to work with your school to help students earn their 40+ hours.  We bring the PCs and train up the geeks at your high-school.  PLease call.

YES - we take applications from community and social workers ... or school counsellors.  Our role is to help kids ... not put up barriers.

YES - we take working iMacs etc - please take them to our partner at BeachMac

YES - we are a Registered Refurbisher with Microsoft, and so, are licensed to install MS operating systems.  As XP winds down, we will be moving to Win7 within the coming year.

NO - we do not normally take printers and other devices, as 'cherished and sometimes needed as they are - we simply can't manage the inventory 

Help for kids/recipients

  • Login - every Little Geeks computer comes with a default user named "Student 1". If you have several children who use the same PC, you may provide each user with their own login.
  • Administrator - You should NOT need to use this login, but if you think you do the login for the Administrator for each PC given away in 2012/3 is:

    "LittleGeek"

    (Note the capital letters).

  • We use OpenOffice for desktop applications for word processing, spreadsheets and others.

    This is an equivalent program,

    to Microsoft Word and Excel. You can open Microsoft documents, and you can save as MS type documents if you need to send them by email. Just click "Save As" instead of, or as well as, "Save".

  • If your child wants that extra advantage for school presentations, go to
    www.prezi.com

    - this is a free presentation tool that is easy to learn, and makes a presentation terrific. Take a quick look at an example on this website at "Help for Applicants", on the left.

Technology and your "new" computer

  • Laptops

    - These are convenient, portable and use wireless to connect to the internet.

    BUT

    they also typically have very weak batteries. We cannot replace the batteries on laptops, so, while they can be carried around the apartment or taken to a "hotspot", you will need make sure you can plug in to the wall outlet.

  • Updates

    - Your computer is preloaded with a number of useful applications and programs. These are constantly updated by their publishers. When they update their software, and the computer goes online, the computer automatically checks for updates. We highly recommend you allow the computer to update the software that we have preloaded.

    Specifically, you ought to allow updates for: Windows, Adobe (Flash, pdf reader and Shockwave), Skype, Gimp, Mozilla (Firefox) and Microsoft Security Essentials.

    When you do allow the updates, sometimes the update asks if it can install toolbars. We recommend that you DO NOT add any search bars or toolbars. In fact, we highly recommend you NEVER add or download any toolbars. These slow your computer and often carry malware and viruses.

    You may add applications, such as iTunes, Chrome (Chrome takes up a lot of disk space), DivX etc. Many of these are safe applications, but they also ask if they can install toolbars. Again, we recommend that you do not.
