Jack McCleskey and Brent Shirley spoke about Evernote, a cloud based program for storing data which may be retrieved from any type of device, phone, iPad, MAC, PC, etc. I felt there was a need to be aware of misuse of the data and warn not to store anything of a financial or private content. If it's out there it can be Hacked!
Mike Marsters reviewed menu commands and gave some input on how to retrieve files from TimeMachine. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1427 The forgoing address is helpful. Also he found using Finder when his backup drive was connected made it easy. He selected the drive, clicked on the backups, picked the most recent, clicked on users, clicked on his name, then selected what file he wanted, copied it and pasted where he thought best. There probably is a similar process with Carbon Copy Cloner and Superduper? Also he suggested the backup drive doesn't need to be connected all the time and TimeMachine can be turned off until you want to use it.
When TimeMachine is on and the backup drive is connected your MAC saves files for later backups and takes up space on your hard drive. If your hard drive is small this can be detrimental and TimeMachine should be turned off periodically to clear the files.
There were lots of questions about setting browsers and other things. Hopefully our members benefited.

We are getting to the end of the season and had about 10 participants last week. There will be a meeting on 4/2 at 1PM in the regular time & place and we'll review or ask questions and attempt to help as many as possible.
Bring all your questions and we'll try to find an answer. If we can't we'll fib.
Your faithful servant,
