Sheena gave a very comprehensive introduction to Facebook and reassured us that users do not have to reveal very much about themselves or their contacts to the World. Many different setting options tailor the degree of privacy and security users want. Messages and notifications can be directed to an individual, specific named people, or to a closed group. Sheena finds it a great way to keep in contact with friends, particularly those living far away… Read more…

We had seven members at this meeting, and there was only one presentation today, not two as advertised.

John talked about the Settings app on the iPad, pointing out that the iPhone settings were basically the same. He explained how to navigate through the structure of the iOS Settings pages, with some settings hidden deep within the columns and not always obvious. He mentioned that a few of the commonly used settings were… Read more…

As a complete departure from our usual fare, we had a very enjoyable presentation by Euan on the history of punctuation and how it tied in with the advent of printing and subsequently with today’s short-cuts in the form of emojis etc. Much of what Euan showed was new to most if not all of the audience, and we found that it is possible to read whole paragraphs with all the letters… Read more…

The advent of the holiday season, the unlikely home nation success in the Euros and the irresistable lure of the Great Referendum Debate combined to ensure that only a select group of nine members gathered at Solutions in Bournemouth to hear part two of John Ansell's Sounds of Music talk, this part being subtitled 'A Listening Evolution'. John told the story of the evolution of his hifi system through the ages, starting with a traditional… Read more…

“Of Squiggles and Marks (letters, points and punctuation), a whimsical talk” began with finding the best punctuation for a highly ambiguous sentence, and establishing when a spoken word like ‘so’ or ‘ok’ is used as ‘punctuation’. There followed a very brief revue of modern punctuation marks. Euan explored emoticons, emoji and symbols through the macOS “Emoji & Symbols&rdquo… Read more…

Ten people attended this meeting, including one new member.
There were two presentations today, which differed from the advertised one.

John gave a talk about using Wi-Fi and how to set it up on an iPad. He explained that having a good Wi-Fi signal, as shown by the Fan symbol, didn't necessarily mean that you were connected to the internet. The term Wi-Fi was only used to describe the… Read more…

Was it because it was a lovely night, or in spite of it that 19 people came to the Café at Ann Day to hear Michael give a series of presentations? We may never know. Anyway, the main one was a Keynote on making a Keynote, showing the basic elements of the application on the Mac, and giving tips on how to go about creating a presentation – or demonstration. One use that not… Read more…

14 members attended to hear John Ansell give his talk on Digital Audio, entitled 'Sounds of Music'.
John began by introducing the basic principle of sound as a pressure wave which is captured using a microphone to produce an electrical analogue of the pressure wave. Up until the 1980s, this electrical signal remained in analogue form as it was recorded (e.g. onto tape) and later played back through an amplifier and speakers. This… Read more…
