Euan wanted to open up the standard “A4 Portrait, Times / Helvetica” page by looking at page dynamics. The terms ‘Design’, ‘Art’ and ‘Beautify’ were discarded in favour of the populating of a village or town with visible and invisible networks, relationships and facilities. Paul Klee’s “Pedagogical Sketchbook” (the Weimar Bauhaus) offers insights which Euan used to open up the subject. These, with short… Read more…

David, wearing his Positive Money hat, explained how money is created when banks make loans and is destroyed when loans are repaid. Borrowing creates savings rather than vice versa. He stressed that it is private debt not Government debt which is the cause of financial crises.

He explained the differences between Central Bank Reserves plus Cash and Commercial Bank Deposit Money (Commercial Banks IOU’s). QE is new money but, being mostly… Read more…

This talk was solely for iOS users - how to use the Shortcuts app. Trevor took us through several of the many supplied shortcuts and how to adapt them to your own version to do what you want. We looked through the various categories and at the workings of some that Trevor had already changed and a brief look at how to set one up from scratch. He also went through how shortcuts can be added… Read more…

Sixteen of us attended an absolutely fascinating talk by Barry Guyer. The hour we spent went by in a flash! There were lots of medical terms etc. so as I was not wanting to give a précis of the talk with incorrect information, Barry has supplied the following:

Barry traced the history of botulinum toxin from multiple deaths from poisoned sausages more than 200 years ago through its first therapeutic… Read more…

Mind Map, first mentioned by Tony Buzan in the 1970’s, is a tool to help you develop ideas. A principal theme is set in the middle of the page and from it the principal factors that make up the idea are drawn and in turn each of them is broken down into its constituent parts. Examples were shown and the features which David thought important when selecting a Mind Map app were described… Read more…

A decent crowd turned up for Mick's Online Apple Quiz. There were just three sections - Macs & macOS, iOS devices and software and to finish, Apple, the company and its history. AUGWessex members all being totally trustworthy, participants were allowed to mark their own answers. In each section there was one "tricky" question which carried more marks though a few people thought there was more than one "tricky" question! However, with a… Read more…

David Parnell took us through using Themes, Master Pages and Styles in Keynote but pointed out that the procedure was all but identical in Pages except that in their usual efforts at consistency, Apple calls Themes Templates in Pages!

He first went through a Keynote presentation showing us the basics of those features and then (bravely!) showed the procedures again, live. This went very well and clearly it was all absorbed by the… Read more…

We were flying high tonight (sorry!). Rick Churchill uses iMovie for, well, movies but finds the titles it can add a bit limiting so showed us how to create a title in Keynote, animate it then add it to iMovie.

Doing it this way you have the full range of fonts, colours and effects available in Keynote and Rick's choice was to use main title in yellow with a blue border and subtitle… Read more…

"And now for something completely different". Euan talked to 24 of us about early computing. It wasn't as I thought a mathematics lesson but a poetry lesson, a history lesson, a lesson on ghost stories and yes, early computers too. The poetry comes from Lady Ada Lovelace, daughter or Lord Byron and the ghost stories (well, nearly!) from Mary Shelley.

Euan confidently walked us through the contributions of Babbage (difference and… Read more…

Barry has an office filling up with filing cabinets and when was then asked to act as an executor with an estate entailing a lot of documentation; how was he to avoid being overwhelmed by ever more paperwork? His investigations led to EverNote which along with all the note taking facilities you would expect can incorporate images, pdfs and a number of different formats with an excellent filing system an easy search facility. Evernote runs… Read more…
