A rather select group of just eleven members gathered to hear Mick Burrell talk about Mail on the Mac. Mick's stated intention was to tell us about a few features of Mail which we may not have thought of exploiting but, by popular request, he prefaced this by a quick revision on the differences between POP and IMAP mail accounts, and the various ways of trying to control the amount of spam we receive. Whilst we… Read more…

Top of the bill was a talk by John Hooper on Time Machine.

Time Machine was introduced with Leopard in 2007, and underwent a major change in 2012. One consequence of that change is that doing a full system restore from a pre-2012 backup poses problems (If you really need to do it, ask John - he has a way!). Restoration of individual files and folders still works normally though.

As promised, Derek took us through editing photos, firstly on the iPad. This was new to lots of those in attendance so it was a well paced walk-through which people could follow on their own machines with one of their own photos.

Derek then went on to look at the extra… Read more…

He avoided specifics but gave good advice on how to approach problems (don’t try when you are tired or stressed) and of ways of finding out what might be causing the trouble (Activity Monitor isn… Read more…
