He gave it on the general area of email splitting it into with 10 separate areas. On this occasion, in response to requests by the audience, he dealt with the first 4 of these ranging from setting up email accounts, through etiquette, to spam. All of the areas were based on using the… Read more…

Mick had prepared a multipart presentation on everything to do with email from the basic setting up of accounts to more sophisticated troubleshooting split under 9 headings, so he suggested that the meeting requested which he should cover. We started at level 3 on his list, Spam. Most email providers provide settings by logging into the webmail account for how they handle spam. This can be holding at the server, marking as suspected spam or… Read more…

Mick took us through the basics in Numbers using a spreadsheet showing transactions on a hypothetical bank account — he advises against that use for real! In addition to columns for the date, description, credit and debit entries he set up a column for the running balance, showing how to make the formula for the calculation and how this can quickly be copied down the column. Numbers is clearly very user friendly; for example when… Read more…

Nine members attended the July meeting to hear Tony Still talk about Blu-ray: ‘a bag of hurt’? Tony first covered the history of Blu-ray, the “next generation DVD” supporting HD, 3D and, in an incompatible new form, 4K. In the search for this, new blue light lasers were developed at significant cost. Steve Jobs refused to adopt Blu-ray for Macs due to complex and expensive licensing and security… Read more…
