John introduced the meeting with 16 members present.

Jim spoke about the `Moneydance money management programme. This had started as an open source programme, but, although now commercial, was maintained and updated for a number of platforms, by a responsive and helpful team. He had initially used Quicken, then Microsoft Money, and now Moneydance, since 2004.
The programme can be used with online banking, or can import statements which the user downloads… Read more…

There was a good attendance this month which I suspect was because of the discussion about Mountain Lion. About one third of us had already installed this and were able to offer comments and suggestions as Doug went through the presentation he had prepared. This gave us a very good idea of what the new operating system was like. Those of us who had yet to install it and indeed some of us who already… Read more…

The images tended to be very long and thin so when viewing with Preview the image had to be zoomed in and then scrolled left and right to see the image, and / or printed on continuous paper… Read more…

It was nice to have a demo that had been requested! This month, Denis gave an excellent follow-up to his previous PhotoShop presentation, showing us more of the versatility of the full version - CS6. He did point out that it can be rented for a monthly fee if the eye-watering price of purchase is beyond your budget but that a lot of what he showed us was also available in the much cheaper… Read more…

Another good attendance resulted in much lively discussion before the meeting formally started. When Alan eventually managed to bring us to order, the Q&A session covered a variety of topics including how Alan came to have some old dormant 2004 Windows viruses on his 2007 machine, conversion of Appleworks documents, rumours of a new iMac (and whether or not it would be able to run pre-Lion versions of the OS to run… Read more…

Mark opened the meeting. 15 members were present the floods having prevented many from travelling.

Tom told us about motion induced blindness - Drivers advised to keep moving eyes and not become fixated on one spot, otherwise danger of losing peripheral vision. This can be a danger for elderly motorists, and Tom wanted to show us a computer simulation to demonstrate this. Unfortunately, the Colliton Club network proved unequal to the task, and so… Read more…

He started by showing us some standard shortcuts for Finder / Email / Quickview / and Spotlight. We then looked at some of the bigger applications such as Pages, along with the standard shortcuts for cut, copy and paste. John finished up by discussing… Read more…

For the first half hour Lionel told us about Drop Box and its use for synchronising files between your Macs and mobile devices as well as its ability to act as an off-site storage facility for those that need it. With 2GB of space being available free of charge, this could well be enough for your most important data. he also explained how it could be used to share files with others either by… Read more…

Thanks to the improved Colliton Club www connection, John, taking time out from his holiday in France, was able to address the assembled members via the Internet, and mutual greetings were exchanged. Including his virtual presence, the meeting was attended by 14 members.

Euan had viewed the WDDC highlights, from Apple, and gave a brief rundown of the headlines, these being the new iBooks, Mountain Lion, and iOS6.

The main part… Read more…
