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…

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…

Eleven people, including one guest, attended this meeting.

John gave a talk explaining the terms: Downloading, Uploading, Updating, Streaming and Syncing, all of which actually perform a similar task of copying data from one device to another. Data that is downloaded from the internet would be either stored as a file, or only temporarily stored in a cache.
He mentioned that whenever we're using the Internet, we're either downloading or uploading data… Read more…

Brian Tapper from our Salisbury Group gave us a very entertaining and informative demonstration of Keynote which, he emphasised was his very personal way of using this flexible software. The images he had previously drawn moved across the screen along many different paths. Brian showed how by reducing the size of the Keynote slide, the pasteboard around it becomes visible so that items positioned off the slide can move onto, across or off the slide… Read more…

There were 14 people at the meeting including three new faces – and a remarkable collection of Dianes/Dianas (4 in all).
Mick gave a very clear and comprehensive demonstration of just how easy it is to use iTunes for syncing between appliances. It is possible to select the quality of songs and so lessen the amount of space they take on an iPad or iPhone – very necessary if their is only a… Read more…

Mick stared off with a presentation showing how easy it it to put Custom ringtone on your mobile phone, using Garage Band to edit a short piece of music to fit by removing the lead in so that it started at the correct point, then saving it as MP3 ready to import it into your mobile phone.

Following Mick, Euan showed us… Read more…
