In the absence of our regular scribe, Steve, here is an inferior effort.
Mark described a document management application called Yep. Together the group explored it's possibilities and we were all greatly impressed by the improvements since it's last outing at a WAMUG meeting at the Crumpery some years ago. It is particularly valuable if, like this writer, you have made more than one filing scheme over the years and are starting to loose… Read more…

A really interesting talk by Lionel again this month - off site backup. If you have important data, to run alongside your existing backup method (you do have a backup I hope!) we looked at the options available for uploading your precious data to a server. This is now getting relatively inexpensive but there are still two problems to overcome to make it an easy/good choice for everyone. Upload speed would be painfully slow for large… Read more…

Another small attendance - just 7 people came to see the first class demonstration of the capabilities (and shortcomings too) of the iPad, given by two members of Solutions staff. The iPad is impressive in its' ease of use. Though the environment is different to a Mac, being based on the iPhone OS, it would be more intuitive to a newbie, though lacking in some of the abilities that we take for granted in a computer… Read more…

In the absence of John, Mark opened the meeting, and announced that the Colliton Club had, at last, decided that we can be allowed access to the Club's Guest wi-fi network. Those members, out of the 19 present, who had brought their computers, promptly availed themselves of this facility, which was pronounced a great success, helping presentations to demonstrate the way in which the internet interacts with the kit being presented.

This… Read more…

Approximately 12 members attended the Fareham meeting. The meeting consisted of three components

Lionel's demo of the Elements plug-ins was very well received. Most of us use a digital camera with our Macs and most that do want or need some form of manipulation. For most of us that's Photoshop Elements. Whilst some of what they do is already available in Elements, OnOne have made things both easier and better. And at £45 for the suite of four they represent excellent value - it's probably worth that… Read more…

There was a select gathering at Solutions store and we began with a brief hints, tips, and problems discussion when we talked about maintaining the quality of MP3 tracks uploaded to an MP3 player. Following that Lionel gave a demonstration of OnOne Essentials 2, which is a suite of plug-ins for use with Photoshop Elements. The plug-ins are cut down versions of a more comprehensive suite produced for Photoshop. Nevertheless they give a… Read more…

Tom picked up the iMovie theme from last month and walked us through importing, setting up a new project and basic editing. There were a great many interested questions and we were left with the possibility of exploring the finer points of what is clearly a powerful application.

We had hoped that the iPad would be available for this meeting but well you know the story so John stepped in with a description… Read more…

A slightly smaller turnout this month with only nine of us present. The format was also slightly different in that there was no formal presentation given however this meant that the whole meeting was given over to problem solving and general discussions based around Macs.

Our first issue was that none of us could actually gain access to the Internet at the meeting! Having spent a good deal of time on this we finally… Read more…

Afirst class presentation on iWeb, showing how an impressive web site can be built and published using this easy application together with mobileme. Mark took us though the various options that we could use and there was a great deal of interest and a good many questions followed. A good meeting!… Read more…
