March 2011 Meeting Minutes

Here’s the news from Tuesday’s meeting……

It was brought to our attention that our president Pete Anderson has been ill and in the hospital. Let’s all wish him a speedy recovery and keep him in our prayers.

Another issue brought to our attention was the time of our meetings. It has been requested to move the meeting time up to 5:30 pm instead of 6:30. That way everyone can get home a little earlier. It was agreed by everyone so 5:30 will be our new start time.

After the business was taken care of, the meeting started out with a question about temporarily taking off the pop-up blocker on the IPad. The directions for that would be: Settings, Safari, pop-up blocker. Don’t forget to go back and reset the pop-up blocker when you are done.

A second question was : How to connect a computer to run through you TV screen. The easiest seemed to be the Apple TV box. Also there types of cables , DVI or HDMI, depending on whether you have HDTV or not. If you are needing that information, check with Strong Solutions. Those guys can always get you the right information.

A presentation on Compressing files, or creating Zip Files, was given. Great idea for files that have a large amount of information. Creating Zip files or Archive files as some computers call them, compresses information into a small file, saving space on your computer.

Some of the other topics discussed were: 1. The IDisk, and the other functions of MobileMe listed in the “Cloud”. Also 2. Encryption, for saving private or secure information you may need to save. 3.If you have an IPhone, and have lost it, you may want to use the “FindMe” feature of MobileMe. You can use that even if you are not signed up for MobileMe.

Well that about did it. Please let us know if there are any topics you would like to have presented. See you at the next meeting.

Sincerely, Linda, Secretary
