Special General Meeting Notes

The Special General Meeting of the WAMUG was held at 7.00 where the four special resolutions (amendments) to the constitution were put to the meeting. There were a number of proxy votes also received and, combined with the personal votes made at the actual meeting, each individual special resolution was carried unanimously.

The amended constitution will now be forwarded to the Department of Commerce to allow the changes to take effect.

There being no other business, the SGM was closed and then we all boxed on with the monthly meeting.

In a small break from tradition, the monthly meeting started off with a demonstration. Read the rest of this entry »

New Web Site

Tuesday, 21st October, 2008 – 15:14 by Administrator

Hi Everyone,

After a long a painful journey the new, easier to manage, WAMUG Web Site is now open. Although it is by no means finished. Have a play and see if you can break it.

As it supports comments on the pages, feel free to leave one. Tell us what works, what doesn’t and if you think something should be added.

– Matt

Meeting Notes

Although the numbers were down on the previous month, the May Meeting was conspicuous by the largest Q & A session we have had for quite some time. The following issues were discussed:

  • Playing WAV files,
  • MacBook Air won’t talk to an external HDD,
  • VM Fusion versus Parallels – pros and cons,
  • How to delete an unwanted startup item,
  • Slow keyboard response after Sleep on a MacBook Pro,
  • Spotlight,
  • Safari,
  • Text alteration in a PDF, and
  • Lack of columns in Numbers.

After welcoming Greg, a new convert from the dark side, Peter Hinchliffe then proceeded to the evening’s main topic, web browsers.

There are about a hundred or so out there with varying pros and cons, both paid versions and freebies so only a limited few were discussed. The most popular for our platform is obviously Safari that seems to go from strength to strength with each update. A little known gem hidden in Preferences – Advanced, is the Develop menu which contains a wealth of information including the construction of web pages. Also interesting is Inquisition, a plug-in that is virtually a ‘Spotlight’ for web site searching. Check out Version Tracker.

The next most popular is probably Firefox. This browser is the child of Netscape and is developed by Motzilla, is free and has more bells and whistles than most others. Flock, which is based on Firefox is designed for social networking.

Others discussed were; iCab, Opera, Sea Monkey, Camino (very popular with very fast page loading) , OmniWeb and Webkit, the engine that powers Safari, Dashboard and many other Mac applications.

Peter’s next presentation was X11 which comes with Leopard and lives in the Utilities folder. This is the technology that enables drawing in Unix and gives access to possibly hundreds of Unix programs and downloads of Unix software to run in OS X. He demonstrated Inkscape, a Unix vector drawing program.

Next cab off the rank was a look at Default Folder X, a shareware utility that attaches a toolbar to to Open or Save dialogue boxes that enables fast access to and management of folders and commands. Check out Version Tracker.

The evening ended with the multitude being able to exit the building without the intervention of Curtin Security. (you had to be there :-o)

Mailing List Now Member Only

Monday, 2nd July, 2012 – 23:28 by Pete Smith


After much careful consideration, the WAMUG Committee have decided that the Mailing List, as of 1 July 2012, will be a member only list. This was not a decision taken lightly but suffice to say that a full explanation was given on the mailing list prior to the change.

The ‘new’ procedures on how to join and subscribe are fully explained on the ‘Join’ and the ‘Mailing List’ pages.

At this stage, previous subscribers to the list who are not currently members have not actually been removed from the list. Their ability to post, however, has been blocked.

Only current financial members can actually post to the list.

New Monthly Meetings Page

Tuesday, 25th January, 2011 – 18:10 by Pete Smith

G’day all.

The WAMUG website is finally undergoing some renovations. We’re learning as we go (and probably forgetting and having to re-learn too! – weeelll, me anyway!!!) so it will be bit-by-bit.

The ‘Meeting’ page is the first to be modified. It has the latest details of the next meeting and will be updated regularly.

Keep an eye out on the site and see if you can spot the changes. Some will be minor and others somewhat more involved. We’ll let you you know about some but not all!

The meeting started with the usual questions and answers and a look at Peter H’s screen saver when it clicked on.

Anyway, there were only a few questions this month but one notable one was about the ability to manually sort photos in iPhoto. It was interesting that amongst the group present with their
