Martin had put together an excellent demonstration of Delicious Library for us. Most, if not all of us knew nothing about it beforehand so were most impressed by it, particularly its ability to read bar codes and connect to Amazon and fill in loads of detail for you - no typing - including jacket artwork (for books and CDs) plus things like a brief synopsis or track listings. It can also keep track of which friend you've… Read more…

OK, it wasn't hot dry & sunny in fact, to be honest it was bordering on the cold, wet and decidedly overcast but I'm please to say that a few hardy souls joined me for what turned out to be a good afternoon out. For good, read entertaining.

We decided that it would be prudent to take a couple of garden gazebos with us to cover the picnic tables so that we could… Read more…

A busy meeting with a good attendance! I can't attribute that to the cakes that Jane had baked for me to take as nobody knew they were coming so it was either the attraction of a talk by Trevor Middleton of Mac Format magazine, the chance to see Roy Rainford's superb photos or maybe the excitement of our first AGM!

We went for the AGM first but the details of that will be in… Read more…

Once more a select gathering- the holiday season was certainly upon us.

Mick Burrell gave an excellent presentation on setting up wireless networks - it all looked so easy! And he was able to pass the words of wisdom on to anyone who needed them in the form of a PDF document, to download onto pen-drives or lap-tops.

Michael Corgan outlined the very competent and wide-ranging writing program, Scrivener… Read more…

We went a little geeky this month, with sessions on running "other" Operating Systems on your Mac and a session on using your Mac when you're a Radio Ham. Interspersed of course with Coffee and Donuts to keep us going!

We kicked off with general chat and discussions including chatting about Broadband providers and the relative speeds we were all achieving. Martin Spenceley followed this, with both an interesting and inspiring… Read more…

At last - a Meeting! But summer has struck and we were, to put it at its best, a very select band that met to see demonstrations by four of the five!

Roy Rainford showed us how he deals with the storage and selling of his very impressive photographs, doing the latter through two linked photo agencies. Having seen the quality of the work he puts on these sites I won't even bother!

We started the afternoon with Mark's presentation of Comic Life Magiq - yes, that is how they spell it. Mark concentrated on showing us just the features that have been added in this new version. The bit that impressed us most was that it now has a tool for cutting out one area of a photo and putting it onto another. This was very easy to use and you didn't have to be too precise to… Read more…

This meeting brought our first year in Salisbury to a close. We were a little down on our average with just nine stalwarts making the effort. I say stalwarts as 3 of us had made 8 of the possible 11 meetings, 2 had made 9, 2 had been to 10 and one other person besides me had in fact made it to all 11 - so we have a "keen core"! Of course, our… Read more…

Steve opened the June meeting at the Colliton Club, at which this month's speakers were Ivan and Martin.

Ivan demonstrated how iPhoto can be used to achieve all sorts of transformations to photos, from changes in colour balance, to alterations in texture. Some of these effects one had imagined could only be achieved using a programme such as Photoshop. He followed this up with an impressive DVD presentation which showed 'before' and 'after… Read more…

O.N.N.A.*

AS Trevor Middleton was driving down from Derby to show us how we could use our Macs to track down our ancestors, at jut gone 3 I received a call from Solutions. Their security shutter had malfunctioned and had to be repaired. And that meant there would be no access to the shop or the presentation room beneath between 6 and 11.30 that night. Of course, this was a… Read more…
