Help Us Help You!

Today's the day I can feel it! Today's the day I am going to catch the red dot!

Today’s the day I can feel it! Today’s the day I am going to catch the red dot!

You know Adult Life Training, Inc. serves the Fort Wayne, IN community and we are and always have been an all-volunteer organization since we formed in 2004 — all of every donation goes to the work.

In this time we have helped several thousand people learn practical computer job skills so that they actually do become employed in real unsubsidized jobs, not just more government taxpayer funded handouts programs.

Of course, you know that you can help us better do our job through direct donations –It’s really not ‘charity’ if it’s taken away from you involuntarily by taxation, now is it? HOWEVER did you know you can donate money to Adult Life Training without paying us anything at all? You can! Use the Amazon SMILE program! Here is the email I just received explaining our Amazon Smile donation from last fall:

This email is to notify you that Adult Life Training Inc has been issued a $5.48 donation from the AmazonSmile Foundation as a result of AmazonSmile program activity between October 1 and December 31, 2015. The donation was deposited to your organization’s bank account on or before February 15, 2016. It may take several days for the donation to appear in the account.

When you buy something from Amazon, instead of going to go to and designate Adult Life Training Inc in Fort Wayne as your organization to support.That donation above represents only about $1,000 of on-line purchases: what if everyone who purchased on-line anyway purchased from Amazon Smile to support Adult Life Training? It won’t increase the amount that anyone pays for whatever things they buy, but Amazon will donate half a percent of whatever you spend to Adult Life Training to help with the work.

Our link to is at the bottom of our web pages, and it looks like this:

So the next time you are thinking of buying something off the web, think of Amazon, and use to Help Us Help You. For a better, happier, more productive community without costing you anything. And remember, you can also donate directly! Just use our PayPal button at the top of this page!

Tablets 1G / 16 G

DSCN3569AllWinner Quadcore A33 tablets, 1 Gig RAM, 16 Gig storage with Android 4.4.2 installed. Comes with black leather-ish case. These were ordered directly from the factory and do not have the mal-ware common on eBay tablet purchases. Semi-rooted for you by the factory. See John at Adult Life Training. The charity needs $120 each: they were selling for that plus shipping on eBay last time I checked. These last a lot longer than the A23 — all day unless you’re watching lots of videos.

Tablets Ready

Office Computers ordered

News Release!I ordered the last two computers, for the Community Room and for the Office. I ordered on so that Adult Life Training gets help (1% of order) as well as was about $200 less costly and a week faster delivery than!

When you buy, please consider buying from using this link. You will probably get a good price, in many cases free 2-day delivery, and you’ll be helping us help the most desperate and needy people in Fort Wayne get real unsubsidized jobs!

Here is a slideshow of how to assemble your own computer.

New Lab Computers Ready

The new computers have been installed in the Bridge Room computer lab. The parts to build the two remaining computers have been ordered and should arrive by Tuesday. The only snag has been that the ASUS mainboards audio does not work and there is no fix currently. ASUS suggested that I purchase eight (8) ASUS sound cards at about $30 each to fix the problem of their on-board audio not working. It is a hardware problem as it works neither in Windows 10 nor in Linux Mint/MATE 17.3.

With volume licensing it is a snap to image the SSDs (instead of mechanical Fixed Disks): make one perfect computer, then use the Linux dd command to clone to all the other disks Readmore..

Blessed & Blessed Again

DSCN3563The Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University curriculum came in quickly and we are working out exactly HOW we are going to facilitate it for our participants. I am concerned that people may *say* they will complete the 10 week curriculum but only come once, and each student costs Adult Life Training, Inc. $102. We are trying to figure a way to guarantee those who start the curriculum really will complete the curriculum. Readmore..
