The meeting was opened by John, 20 members were present

Martin started the proceedings by telling us about 'Maintaining your Mac' and asking us why everyone else had more trouble with maintaining their Macs than he did, and wondering if it was because they were making life to complicated for themselves. His guiding principle was KISS - Keep it simple, stupid!
This, for him, means:
Don't run 3rd party maintenance applications, and… Read more…

JailBreak - Alan Lewer

Alan gave a very entertaining talk on Jail-breaking iOS devices. Various topics were discussed:

Is it Legal? - Yes but will violate the terms of use agreement between end user and Apple, forget warranties and support.
You can still access the iStore even after device has been jail-broken.
It took a while to do and so did the reverse process

After talking about… Read more…

A few regulars missing this month but a select band listened to John's demo of Skype. He volunteered his son (who was in another country - Scotland) to be on the other end. We were treated to a video chat which of course is free to do. We then looked at how you can find contacts by searching for their Skype name (if you know it) or their email address or name. John didn't demonstrate but explained… Read more…

Alan started the meeting by saying that the WAGs website had recently had a superb, major makeover (by our Webmaster Chris Willis) which he recommended everyone to visit. An interesting new feature was Chat enabling members to indulge in text conversations with each other on a public or private basis. He then asked members to suggest topics they would find interesting at future meetings and would be pleased to hear from anyone who would be… Read more…

John introduced the meeting with 16 members present.

Jim spoke about the `Moneydance money management programme. This had started as an open source programme, but, although now commercial, was maintained and updated for a number of platforms, by a responsive and helpful team. He had initially used Quicken, then Microsoft Money, and now Moneydance, since 2004.
The programme can be used with online banking, or can import statements which the user downloads… Read more…

There was a good attendance this month which I suspect was because of the discussion about Mountain Lion. About one third of us had already installed this and were able to offer comments and suggestions as Doug went through the presentation he had prepared. This gave us a very good idea of what the new operating system was like. Those of us who had yet to install it and indeed some of us who already… Read more…

The topic for the main discussion this month was creating Dynamic Panoramas. Derek Wright explained that he had been taking panorama pictures for quite a while, The images had been merged together using the special feature in Photoshop. The images tended to be very long and thin so when viewing with Preview the image had to be zoomed in and then scrolled left and right to see the image, and / or printed on continuous paper… Read more…

It was nice to have a demo that had been requested! This month, Denis gave an excellent follow-up to his previous PhotoShop presentation, showing us more of the versatility of the full version - CS6. He did point out that it can be rented for a monthly fee if the eye-watering price of purchase is beyond your budget but that a lot of what he showed us was also available in the much cheaper… Read more…

Another good attendance resulted in much lively discussion before the meeting formally started. When Alan eventually managed to bring us to order, the Q&A session covered a variety of topics including how Alan came to have some old dormant 2004 Windows viruses on his 2007 machine, conversion of Appleworks documents, rumours of a new iMac (and whether or not it would be able to run pre-Lion versions of the OS to run… Read more…

Mark opened the meeting. 15 members were present the floods having prevented many from travelling.

Tom told us about motion induced blindness - Drivers advised to keep moving eyes and not become fixated on one spot, otherwise danger of losing peripheral vision. This can be a danger for elderly motorists, and Tom wanted to show us a computer simulation to demonstrate this. Unfortunately, the Colliton Club network proved unequal to the task, and so… Read more…
