Euan explained the technical wonders and evolution of Apple’s new M1 chip which is replacing Intel processors across the Mac range and is also used in the iPad Pro. He discussed some very technical details but the talk was aimed at a more general audience and he successfully held our interest and attention.

After visiting the development of integrated circuits from Jack Kilby’s first experimental design through Apple&rsquo… Read more…

New, organiser, new venue and lots of familiar faces. Stuart has taken over from Jeanette and as we'd lost our old booking found us a new room - in The Victory Hall at Warsash. The wi-fi signal is a little weak but we'll find a way round that. It was a really good turn out for our first face-to-face meeting post lockdown with nearly all our regulars present. There was no formal presentation… Read more…

This was our first face-to-face meeting following the switch to virtual on-line meetings because of Covid. It was also the first in our new venue Yarn Barton. There were six attendees: three from Beaminster and three stalwarts of the club whose support and expertise is most helpful. Since this was a new beginning David P explored what members might want from the sessions and established that a balance of presentation on diverse… Read more…

This was our second physical meeting (even if in the open air) and celebrated the 500th physical meeting our Chairman Mick Burrell has attended. David and Margaret Whitton kindly hosted the occasion in their garden and house in Poundbury. Twenty three of us from all AugWessex groups came (sadly, four had to cancel for health reasons). After such a disappointing start to August weather, the sun shone on this event; clearly the Gods wanting to… Read more…

Wow! What an evening! Most weather forecasts were predicting thunder storms but it was a beautiful evening over Helen's garden which, I may add, looked as if it were part of Kew. We were able to sit on the lawn, basking in the late evening sun and enjoying Helen's delicious food. She hadn't told us she's a Michelin starred chef when she offered to host but what a treat. However, it was 50/50 whether… Read more…

Our new session of having a monthly Q&A online meeting got off to a good start with ten of us. Questions ranged from a glitch using TeamViewer leading to discovering that Apple have a screen share app on the Mac, do I need ethernet and wi-fi both connected on a Mac to preparing a Mac for sale or disposal. Hopefully the answers made sense and even those who joined in to learn… Read more…

Our first meeting since March 2020, really a social get together, hosted by Georgia Cheer in her lovely garden in Poundbury was a most enjoyable occasion and great to meet up physically rather than from behind our Mac screens. Fourteen of us attended and many had the added pleasure/education of Georgia's husband John showing them/us his stunning 1924 Rolls Royce beautifully renovated to original specification. The meeting started at 7.00 pm with… Read more…

David’s talk illustrated how drones, even the type that are available to a domestic market are finding applications in all walks of life. The basic rules and features of the drones were described. The talk finished with examples of some of the images that can be taken using the vantage point that a drone offers.… Read more…

We had a look at Pages tonight. We looked at the use of templates, styles, columns and flowing text around objects then finished with a quick look at how Pages could be used to lay out and print different sized photos on an A4 sheet.… Read more…

By popular request, John Lemon gave a reprise of his talk on ViewRanger he first presented four years ago. At that time, you could download maps or just portions of maps to the device you'd be taking with you to guide you on your pre-planned route by foot or bike. However, lots has happened since then, principally that ViewRanger has been bought by German company OutdoorActive. The takeover has not worked to John's liking… Read more…
