For our September meeting we were fortunate to have Iain Cowper, an Apple accredited trainer, mainly with local schools to give us a presentation on creating/editing a video.

Iain gave a thoroughly enjoyable and thoroughly understandable guide to creating and sharing a video on the iPad in iMovie. He demonstrated the very comprehensive versatility that iMovie for the iPad has in so small and affordable a package, demonstrating the ability to add… Read more…

David opened this special Q&A meeting, which attracted 21 members who were fully geared up to transmit and/or receive a plethora of (mostly) Mac related information.

Your scribe attempted vainly to record the minutiae thereof, but was overcome by the copious flow of questions, data, hypotheses, speculations, and general advice and miscellaneous chit-chat.

The scope covered was wide, and included the mysteries… Read more…

I showed some of my Card Designs and simple drawings, starting with basic card designs and a reminder that you should make sure the card will fold correctly and, very importantly, that it will fit into an envelope.

Then onto some more complicated card design samples, such as triangular folded, bowed, tubular and arranging two cards printed both side in two printer passes, some designs worked but others… Read more…

With two talks to fit in, Alan called the meeting to order and immediately introduced Peter Shepheard to talk on fractals. A Polish born mathematician called Benoit Mandelbrot is generally regarded as the father figure of fractals (Mandelbrot in Wiki).

His talk centred around three applications that allow fractal artwork to be produced with little or no understanding of the underlying mathematics. Peter started by showing pictures of fractal patterns occurring in nature. He then… Read more…

After John opened the meeting, David gave a talk and demonstration of Image Capture both as a stand-alone app and as built in to Preview. Actually his live demonstration was frustrated by the fact that whilst his Epson Printer/Scanner printed fine over the network , he could not get the scanner to respond. Several members printed documents from IOS devices via Printopia installed on David’s Mac. Printer network problems proved a significant… Read more…

We had six people at the meeting. The flow of the meeting was disturbed by the disastrous news that Apple have decided to kill Aperture - a favourite product amongst the members. Aperture is a product that helps to define OSX as being different from Windoze and the Windoze centric Adobe products.

A certain amount of branch admin took place regarding meeting run times and schedule.

It is thought that we may… Read more…

John Ansell presented a short history of his experiences with electricity monitors some of which he produced out of his bag as he proceeded with his presentation. About five years ago he bought an energy monitor from E-on, his energy company. He showed how the sensor part clips to the main electricity input to the house while the display part, connected wirelessly, shows the instantaneous energy usage. This allows consumers (that’s us… Read more…
