This was our second physical meeting (even if in the open air) and celebrated the 500th physical meeting our Chairman Mick Burrell has attended. David and Margaret Whitton kindly hosted the occasion in their garden and house in Poundbury. Twenty three of us from all AugWessex groups came (sadly, four had to cancel for health reasons). After such a disappointing start to August weather, the sun shone on this event; clearly the Gods wanting to… Read more…

Wow! What an evening! Most weather forecasts were predicting thunder storms but it was a beautiful evening over Helen's garden which, I may add, looked as if it were part of Kew. We were able to sit on the lawn, basking in the late evening sun and enjoying Helen's delicious food. She hadn't told us she's a Michelin starred chef when she offered to host but what a treat. However, it was 50/50 whether… Read more…

Our new session of having a monthly Q&A online meeting got off to a good start with ten of us. Questions ranged from a glitch using TeamViewer leading to discovering that Apple have a screen share app on the Mac, do I need ethernet and wi-fi both connected on a Mac to preparing a Mac for sale or disposal. Hopefully the answers made sense and even those who joined in to learn… Read more…

Our first meeting since March 2020, really a social get together, hosted by Georgia Cheer in her lovely garden in Poundbury was a most enjoyable occasion and great to meet up physically rather than from behind our Mac screens. Fourteen of us attended and many had the added pleasure/education of Georgia's husband John showing them/us his stunning 1924 Rolls Royce beautifully renovated to original specification. The meeting started at 7.00 pm with… Read more…

David’s talk illustrated how drones, even the type that are available to a domestic market are finding applications in all walks of life. The basic rules and features of the drones were described. The talk finished with examples of some of the images that can be taken using the vantage point that a drone offers.… Read more…

We had a look at Pages tonight. We looked at the use of templates, styles, columns and flowing text around objects then finished with a quick look at how Pages could be used to lay out and print different sized photos on an A4 sheet.… Read more…

By popular request, John Lemon gave a reprise of his talk on ViewRanger he first presented four years ago. At that time, you could download maps or just portions of maps to the device you'd be taking with you to guide you on your pre-planned route by foot or bike. However, lots has happened since then, principally that ViewRanger has been bought by German company OutdoorActive. The takeover has not worked to John's liking… Read more…

Not much to say really except there was a lively discussion about all things Apple are releasing, especially the new iMac, and about what we'd buy and why as well as what we won't buy and why not! If you missed the broadcast, it's available to watch (about an hour) here:

Apple's April Event

Of course, the Apple Store has all the latest launches available to buy even though it may be "… Read more…

It's surprising how many of our group actually have trail cameras and/or cameras in bird boxes. Mick showed the sort of cameras he uses in both situations and then some footage of hedgehogs, foxes, cats chasing foxes(!) and a blue tit in a newly installed nest box. Tricia then talked us through her setup which is slightly different so a wide variety of possibilities was covered. A pleasing number of attendees were then able… Read more…

Rick now has over 100 apps on his phone so is well placed to offer a selection of some that we may not know of yet may find useful. He made a selection of these and took us through how each of them worked and how he used them. There was naturally a bias towards his interests of cycling and bird watching but plenty of others ranging from the very useful to plain entertaining.
