The new venue at Salisbury Rugby Club was voted a big improvement for various reasons. Being a smaller venue, the 14 people who attended made the room about two thirds full and as such more cosy than rattling around in the huge science lab of the school. Also, the fact that we have movable tables we can arrange into any format to suit us meant that were weren't in regimented rows, one behind the other… Read more…

Summer holidays and appalling weather - and still we had a good turnout at Solutions. The meeting started with the usual Q & A - our new attendee - still a guest as I write - wanted to know if his trusty old Mac, running OS ( on 233 Mhz could be upgraded to OS X - regretfully not! And a problem, already on the Discussion page here, received some good suggestions on how to get Time Machine running again. There… Read more…

The meeting was opened by John, with 18 members present.

David gave a very interesting presentation which explained how he used Sound Studio and iTunes to produce a regular audio magazine programme on CD for blind people in the area. He introduced this with some historical recollections of how sound recording had been used 'in the field' by the BBC since the days of WWII, using wire recorders, reel-to-reel tape, and… Read more…

Numbers were a bit down this month hopefully that was just because it was summer. Nevertheless we had the usual enthusiastic bunch hanging on the presenter's every word! This month's presenter was Barry and he was showing us just how easy it is to transfer an iPhoto slideshow into iDVD. To demonstrate this we were treated to a slideshow Barry had compiled from photographs he took on a trip to Canada a couple of years… Read more…

We were given an excellent presentation on how to trace your family - first from Mary Hewson, on the sources available - a fact sheet was handed out to enable anyone interested to get started - and then a comprehensive demonstration of a well-proven and impressive genealogical program for the Mac - Reunion - which showed well in presenting the details and the family tree of a huge number of ancestors that Trevor Hewson has found and researched over… Read more…

The meeting was opened by Mark, with a total of 19 members present. We all introduced ourselves, as there were quite a few who were new to the group.

Mark then demonstrated Yep! from www.yepsoftware.com This useful programme costs $34, and searches for all the pdf files on a Mac, and identifies them in a searchable archive. It will even read a scanned in document to enable a search of words… Read more…

This months Fareham meeting kicked off with WindowsXP showing on the screen. Shock, horror... Were we at the wrong meeting, wrong date...!?! No, thankfully it was to demo a piece of new technology which is currently only available for PC use. As it was so impressive and will be made available for the Mac it was deemed suitable!

So what was this marvellous technology, it was a magical pen which when used to… Read more…

Numbers were a bit down this month but perhaps people were in the back garden sun bathing - it was certainly hot enough!

There were a few questions and answers as usual then we had a brief look at spam - how is it we get targeted and how to deal with it either using Mail's junk filter or before it gets anywhere near your Mac.

We were then treated to two impromptu… Read more…

Another good meeting with new faces - both members and visitors -and presentations by Michael Corgan on Dashboard and where to get widgets and how, and by Lionel on how to make web-site widgets giving immediate access to a web page using Safari - couldn't be easier! And finally a hilarious tour around the sky over Heathrow, thanks to Euan and his Flying Helmet of the Future. And after the main meeting almost everybody decamped to… Read more…

John opened the meeting, which was attended by 14 members.

Lionel gave a lively presentation on iTunes, which was a helpful introduction to the newcomer, and a welcome reminder to the more experienced, of the various facilities which were available to users of this established Macintosh favourite. We covered the videos and podcasts available through the iTunes shop, the Visualiser, playlists, and smart playlists, how to use iTunes tracks with iPhoto and iMovie… Read more…
