John opened the meeting, with 20 members present.

In anticipation of our numbers swelling still further, and of its becoming more difficult to see the screen properly, Martin gave a practical demonstration and talk on how the situation could be ameliorated by either sharing a Keynote or a .pdf file containing the slides to be presented, or alternatively, how to implement screen sharing between computers.

We're now settling in at our new venue and with the wi-fi working perfectly, everyone was happy. We started with a few questions but not many of us are experiencing problems that need sorting at present so of necessity, it was quite short.

John then took us through the workings of Time Machine and a general discussion followed on different ways of using it and what it would and would not do… Read more…

between POP and IMAP email accounts which seemed to clear up some mysteries for quite a few of those in attendance.

Next up was Derek with a review and demo of the Preview application, an often overlooked program with many features and capabilities. During the demo members identified that Apple had updated Preview in the latest… Read more…

Our first meeting at the new venue. Everyone seemed to think it's a good venue but there was a problem with the wi-fi which we hope to sort out before the next meeting.

We ran through the differences between POP and IMAP email accounts which seemed to clear up some mysteries for quite a few of those in attendance. The Q&A session was also quite lively but that could have… Read more…

We had twelve people in total at the first meeting of the year. After introductions and issues arising Derek ran through a few features in Photoshop to reuse or use photos that initially did not work.

The first picture was of a tourist sign board that was photographed at about 60 degrees from the perpendicular, this image was converted into a square image and then the image enhanced with a bit of "… Read more…

Topics ranged from printer-router connections via Wi-Fi settings, Networks, desktop icons failing to show, Time Machine failures, external drives back-up including Drobo (a powerful storage system), slide shows in sequence from iPhoto… Read more…

The January meeting was attended by 23 members and guests. John introduced the meeting, and distributed forms on which we were invited to record what would like, and what we could offer to future meetings. This month, we heard about the mysteries of POP and IMAP email from Mick, and also about some useful apps from Michael, and John.

First, Mick on email: (A brief paraphrase, notes are available from him.)
