Martin introduced a useful tool for investigating local network problems – iNet for OSX. This scans your local wireless network and identifies devices linked to it.  Wifi Explorer is an OS X app too, which identifies nearby WiFi networks, and is useful to identify channel conflicts.

Martin then showed us MacTracker which lists all Apple OSs and models… Read more…

John Lemon gave us a presentation on Garageband to a very good meeting – 21 people came to hear him and it was not a wasted journey. John looked at this program on both the Mac and the iPad and guided us through what could have been a maze, given the huge capabilities and multiple avenues to explore that Garageband presents. He opened many doors to making our own music without dragging us too far… Read more…

Alternatively, the emails can be stored in separate database files, each one corresponding to separate categories, such as for each year.

Initially, he makes estimates of expenditure in various categories. He enters the actual amounts each month which he downloads… Read more…

We started the evening with a discussion on Yosemite. Opening the discussion, John suggested that from the various comments he had read it would seem best to stick with Mavericks for the time being. But the eight or so members present who had upgraded were quite happy with Yosemite; Graham had got over his early WiFi problems by switching from Automatic location to a manual setting. David and Drew had their Computers showing up in… Read more…

Mick Burrell gave a presentation outlining the new features in both OSX 10.10 Yosemite and iOS8. There was a very good attendance for this – Mick seems to draw the crowds! It was good to see Mick showing us in his usual concise and easily understood fashion what we can now do with our Macs, iPads and iPhones, and also to learn which of these can be updated to the latest operating systems. The… Read more…

The meeting started with a presentation by John Hooper on Passwords and Keychains. Keychains were introduced in 1997 with OS 8.6 to store passwords, wireless keys etc. and to allow designated apps to use this information so that there is no need to type it in every time you visit a web page. John demonstrated how Keychain Access (found in the Utilities folder) is used to manage the passwords stored in your Login Keychain… Read more…
