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…

Apple's April Event

Of course, the Apple Store has all the latest launches available to buy even though it may be "… Read more…

It's surprising how many of our group actually have trail cameras and/or cameras in bird boxes. Mick showed the sort of cameras he uses in both situations and then some footage of hedgehogs, foxes, cats chasing foxes(!) and a blue tit in a newly installed nest box.

Rick now has over 100 apps on his phone so is well placed to offer a selection of some that we may not know of yet may find useful. He made a selection of these and took us through how each of them worked and how he used them. There was naturally a bias towards his interests of cycling and bird watching but plenty of others ranging from the very useful to plain entertaining.

Euan wanted to open up the standard “A4 Portrait, Times / Helvetica” page by looking at page dynamics. The terms ‘Design’, ‘Art’ and ‘Beautify’ were discarded in favour of the populating of a village or town with visible and invisible networks, relationships and facilities. Paul Klee’s “Pedagogical Sketchbook” (the Weimar Bauhaus) offers insights which Euan used to open up the subject. These, with short… Read more…

David, wearing his Positive Money hat, explained how money is created when banks make loans and is destroyed when loans are repaid. Borrowing creates savings rather than vice versa. He stressed that it is private debt not Government debt which is the cause of financial crises.

He explained the differences between Central Bank Reserves plus Cash and Commercial Bank Deposit Money (Commercial Banks IOU’s). QE is new money but, being mostly… Read more…

We looked through the various categories and at the workings of some that Trevor had already changed and a brief look at how to set one up from scratch. He also went through how shortcuts can be added… Read more…

Sixteen of us attended an absolutely fascinating talk by Barry Guyer. The hour we spent went by in a flash! There were lots of medical terms etc. so as I was not wanting to give a précis of the talk with incorrect information, Barry has supplied the following:

Barry traced the history of botulinum toxin from multiple deaths from poisoned sausages more than 200 years ago through its first therapeutic… Read more…
