There was a very good attendance of 20, which included another six newcomers.

Andy gave us a very interesting talk about a Database Application - MySQL, which he had learnt from a course attended last year.
The software is free since it is Open Source, and is fully functional and very comprehensive.
He explained how to set it up and entered some details, then showed us how you can quickly display some… Read more…

The main feature of this evening's meeting was a talk on Making Photos by Peter Shepheard. He began by putting up three photographs of the same subject and polling the audience on which one they preferred. Evaluation of the results was promised later. . . .

We were also surveyed briefly on what we actually did with our photos. Rather shamefully, 'nothing' came out clearly on top in this one, so Peter went on to talk… Read more…

Garageband has come on a long way since Mick demonstrated the Mac version of the program in January 2012 and John Lemon followed that up two months later with its first incarnation on IOS. So for this meeting John Lemon brought us up to date on both versions with a fascinating presentation and demonstration first on the Mac and then on IOS using an iPad.

Fifteen people were at Beaminster to hear Mick explain very clearly the functions and differences between iCloud and iCloud Drive – the first actively synchronises items in Apple applications such as Contacts and iCal and Mail between all your Apple devices, while the latter acts as storage for any file that you wish to store off of your Apple kit. There were quite a few questions about these which Mick was able to clear up… Read more…

Once the rather novel IT setup had been persuaded to function (more later), Tony introduced himself to give a talk on Keynote on the iPad.

The talk covered the design, production and delivery of a presentation, the first section emphasising the importance of sorting out your ideas at the outset, being clear on the objectives of the talk and tailoring it to the intended audience.

Tony's presentation had been prepared entirely… Read more…

John opened the meeting with 19 members present.

Mick then gave a talk on iCloud and iCloud Drive, the main distinction being that the former is mainly used to synchronise files automatically (e.g. Contacts, dates) whereas the latter is intended to store files. In this respect, iCloud Drive has much in common with apps such as Dropbox, but is, in some ways, at least at present, more limited than Dropbox in terms… Read more…
