The question & answer session was quite lively this month with members asking "why am I being asked for a password to join my network" and "what hardware should I buy next". "Why is my Text Edit misbehaving" and finally, "what's Text Edit"! In fact, I think there were more answers than questions!

We then had a brief run through of how to coax labels… Read more…

Sorry about the date shown above - the only other date on offer was for the September meeting! That was because I had forgotten that it was down to me to add the 2011 meeting dates to the WAMUG calendar. This is now done! (ARMeD*) Anyway, the meeting actually took place last night, January 18th, with the programme originally set up for that December meeting but postponed because of the bad weather. (My car was stuck… Read more…

An excellent meeting as our last of the year with two presentations from two very knowledgeable presenters.

First up was Alex Cox who is coming back into the fold after a long absence. Alex has a great depth of knowledge of computer security but managed to cover the subject so us mere mortals could understand. He covered viruses, malware and phishing attacks and gave a particular warning that it's now easier to fool… Read more…

With three of our regulars elsewhere engaged the meeting was best described as compact. So was the presentation by Michael Corgan who gave an overview of five applications for Optical Character Recognition. Of the five it was only possible to show the three cheapest at work, namely in descending order of price and accuracy: Abbyy Fine Reader 10, Prizmo and Vuescan. The last adds OCR to it's scanner driver capabilities (which are huge and well… Read more…

John opened the meeting, and explained that we would be short of one speaker, who had been held up in the traffic.

We started with a presentation by Michael Corgan, who told us about Soho Organiser by Chronos.
This programme serves to replace Apple's Address Book, and iCal,, and Michael feels that it has a number of advantages over these programmes. It also adds a Journal. For example, it offers a tabbed… Read more…
