With two talks to fit in, Alan called the meeting to order and immediately introduced Peter Shepheard to talk on fractals. A Polish born mathematician called Benoit Mandelbrot is generally regarded as the father figure of fractals (Mandelbrot in Wiki).

After John opened the meeting, David gave a talk and demonstration of Image Capture both as a stand-alone app and as built in to Preview. Actually his live demonstration was frustrated by the fact that whilst his Epson Printer/Scanner printed fine over the network , he could not get the scanner to respond. Several members printed documents from IOS devices via Printopia installed on David’s Mac. Printer network problems proved a significant… Read more…

John Ansell presented a short history of his experiences with electricity monitors some of which he produced out of his bag as he proceeded with his presentation. About five years ago he bought an energy monitor from E-on, his energy company. He showed how the sensor part clips to the main electricity input to the house while the display part, connected wirelessly, shows the instantaneous energy usage. This allows consumers (that’s us… Read more…
