David P tried to balance his fondness for spreadsheets by issuing warnings on the dangers - JP Morgan Chase is reported to have lost more than six billion dollars relying on a spreadsheet!

Thanks to Roy we were able to have an emergency change of venue and meet in the Yarn Barton Centre. David P addressed the basics of using Numbers and illustrated how spreadsheets could be used for more than just manipulating numbers. Some sheets had not a single number on them.

Automator is a facility included in macOS for generating scripts without the need for programming. Euan started with a history lesson, tracing the origins of this idea back to Bill Atkinson’s HyperCard app which was run on the very first Macs.
