Mick took us through the basics in Numbers using a spreadsheet showing transactions on a hypothetical bank account — he advises against that use for real! In addition to columns for the date, description, credit and debit entries he set up a column for the running balance, showing how to make the formula for the calculation and how this can quickly be copied down the column. Numbers is clearly very user friendly; for example when… Read more…

Nine members attended the July meeting to hear Tony Still talk about Blu-ray: ‘a bag of hurt’? Tony first covered the history of Blu-ray, the “next generation DVD” supporting HD, 3D and, in an incompatible new form, 4K. In the search for this, new blue light lasers were developed at significant cost. Steve Jobs refused to adopt Blu-ray for Macs due to complex and expensive licensing and security… Read more…

12 people attended the Fareham meeting when Tony Still gave us a talk on iPad, My iPad.

This talk was about personalising the iPad so you can work the way you prefer.

He noted that iOS 11 was a big step and made the iPad more of complete computer and less of a big screen phone.

For our June meeting we made a movie, a Stop-Motion Movie.

Everyone took part by moving our star “Claris the Crocadile (a large cuddly toy)”

Claris was gradually moved around the tables while a photograph was taken after each move, about 25 photos to create the action.

During the break the camera photos were be downloaded to Photos and made into a slideshow, then save as… Read more…

This meeting started in alfresco style as a group of 12 assembled in the sunshine outside of ‘All Fired Up’, a handwritten notice on the door assuring us that someone was ‘on her way’. For some of us, the assumption that this meant she was headed our way on this particular day at around this time seemed rather optimistic but, happily, it turned out to be well founded.

Mick talked us through the basic file structure on the Mac starting at the “top level” Hard Drive. He advised that other than Users and Applications, leave well alone. The Finder is the heart of the Mac system and Mick took us through Finder Preferences. He ran through the default files under any user and explained that the Application folder here is normally empty as any app there would be accessible only by… Read more…
