Hello everybody

It is traditional when a new member joins our group for Gordon and I to welcome the new member personally.

In keeping with that tradition, I would like to welcome Sharon Ballantyne to our number.

I hope that you will find Mac-Access a worthwhile place to be, and that you will make use of what we have to offer.

In this group, you will find a positive wealth of individuals with knowledge and skills ranging from the beginner to the seasoned experienced user and even developers. Whatever your skill level in OSX and iOS, we hope that you will feel free to post your questions and constructive comments.

Anything Mac OSX or iOS is on topic for this group. In the case of virtualisation products such as VMWare Fusion and Parallels Desktop, the configuration of the virtual machine itself and the virtualisation application are on topic. But configuration of your Windows settings are off topic.

Should you have any list-related queries, please don't hesitate to contact Gordon and myself, (the list owners) on support at mac-access.net or our very capable list moderator Anne Robertson, on anne at anarchie.org.uk for help.

Once again, welcome to the group.

Hello everybody

It is traditional for this group that, when a new member joins our number, Gordon and I try to welcome them personally to the list.

In keeping with that tradition, I am delighted to welcome Rafaela Freundt to the group.

I have just posted 2 new member welcomes; so I won't repeat the information again just now. But please feel free to join in the discussions if you wish.

If you have any list-related queries, please contact Gordon and myself, (list owners), or our capable list moderator anne Robertson, anne at anarchie.org.uk and we will do our best to help you.

Hello everybody

Today has seen a record number of members join our group since we started it and that is undoubtedly due to the best form of advertising on the planet; word of mouth. So thank you to all those who have spread the word about Mac-Access. Please it it going if you would; we're approaching the 100 members mark, let's see if we can top it.

It is traditional when a new member joins our group for us to welcome that new member personally.

In keeping with that tradition, I would like to welcome Dan Eickmeier to our number.

In this forum you will find a wealth of experience and knowledge, as well as a host of people all eager and willing to learn from and help one another.

Whatever your level of skill with Apple's products, I hope you will feel free to post your questions and constructive comments.

Anything Mac OSX and iOS is on topic for this group. If you'd like to discuss anything related to virtualisation, please be aware that the discussion of the application itself, (Fusion, for instance), is perfectly on topic. As is the configuration of the virtual machine. But the configuration of your Windows programmes and screen-reader, if any, is definitely off topic for this group.

Should you have any list-related queries, please feel free to contact Gordon and myself, (the list owners), at support at mac-access.net or our very capable list moderator, Anne Robertson, at anne at anarchie.org.uk and we will be only to happy to help you.

Once again, Dan Eickmeier, welcome to Mac-Access at mac-access.net.

Thanks a lot Lynne. Have heard about this list for some time, and thought i'd join up now. I'm also over on Mac visionaries as well. I feel the more people i can help with Apple products the better. Have been using Macs since the release of WIndows Vista, which I didn't bother getting. Had an XP machine for a while, along side this iMac that I still have. I also have one of the 2008 Aluminum Macbooks, and a third gen iPod touch.

Well we cannot comment on other resources because we don't use them. To be honest, we don't have the time. Gordon and I do a great deal of work to keep this running smoothly.

Sadly, there are those intent upon spoiling things for others; and it's our duty, as we see it, to filter all that stuff out.

So we need to stay one step ahead of the hackers, the crackers, the nut-cases and those with malice aforethought.

Hello everybody

I cannot remember a day when we've had so many new members join.

It is traditional for this group that, when a new member joins, we try to welcome them personally, to make them feel wanted and welcome.

In keeping with that tradition, I am pleased to welcome Colin M to our number.

In here, Colin, you will find a positive wealth of individuals working collectively to help one another. There is a variety of skill levels; ranging from the very new Mac user, to the Windows user who is a potential Mac switcher, to the expert who develops their own applications.

Please feel free to post your own questions and constructive comment, whatever your skill level. The beginning of wisdom is "I Don't Know". We all learn from one another and that's the aim of this group.

If you have any list-related queries, please feel free to contact either Gordon and myself, (the list owners), support at mac-access.net or our very capable assistant list moderator Anne Robertson; anne at anarchie.org.k and we will do our best to help resolve your query.

Welcome once again.

Hello everybody

It is traditional, when a new member joins our group, that Gordon and I try to welcome the new member personally to the list.

In keeping with that tradition, I am pleased to welcome Chad Rohr to our number.

No matter what your skill level, we're all here to help one another. So feel free to post your questions and constructive comment.

Anything Mac OSX is on topic for this group. In the case of virtual applications such as Parallels Desktop and VMWare Fusion, the configuration of the OSX side of things is fine. But the configuration of a Windows session is off topic for this group.

Should you have any list queries whatsoever, please don't hesitate to contact either Gordon and myself, "support at mac-access.net or our very capable list controller, who looks after the list for us when we're not available, Anne Robertson; anne at anarchie.org.uk and we will try to address your concerns.

We hope you find this list of value to you.

Finally, I would remind all members that the 80 discount on Take Control of your Mac books is still available. If you're interested in buying any of these books have proven invaluable to many members who have so far taken up the offer.

For information about the 80% discount, please contact the above address, support at mac-access.net at your leisure.

Well, so far, and this is after only a few hours of using it, I feel a bit like I would have done if I had switched from IE to Firefox, Outlook to Thunderbird, and Jaws to Window Eyes all at once, and yet I can still do things pretty much at the speed I could using things I was familiar with, since I have all the same apps running and none of those awful lags or freezes. But I've already found some really cool features. It feels like being half way between a computer and a notetaker somehow, but with the best bits of both, not the worst. I can only get faster and happier from here!

Well, I was on a lot of the Mac lists asking awkward questions for months, partly in the lead up to the BCAB event after Sight Village, but also partly because I wasn't happy on the other side, so I have got as far as I am largely due to the excellent Mac community. I shall no doubt find things I can't figure out soon enough and then the questions will start again!

Hi,

It's one of those things, you need to work out how you're going to move your data, and then start the process and let it run. Then, just try doing everything on the Mac. I will aim not to use anything on the Windows side unless I have no reasonable way of doing it on the Mac. That seems to be the only way to get used to any new system.

Cheers
Dave

Dave, I'd be really grateful if you would, in due course, let us know
whether there are any tasks which you end up being unable to perform on the
Mac. For someone who hasn't yet switched, that info is really important to
have.
Thanks,
Richard

Richard,

I can already tell you that most things are easier, but you'll see questions from me if I find anything I simply cannot do. To be honest, a lot of stuff is so much easier already that it's well worth it for me. There are a few problems that have just gone away because the Mac is pretty cool really. Unless you are a pretty serious user of something like MS Office or Kurzweil 1000, you should have few problems, but anway, you could get a Mac and run Windows on a virtual machine using Fusion if you really had to.

Cheers
Dave

You can easily use iWork to replace MS Office or even Open Office, which is a free cross-platform solution. For scanning, you can use ABBEY FineReader Express. This is an excellent app and there is absolutely nothing that I use W for. It has been this way since 2006.

Hi Dave, I do use Office quite a bit I suppose for word processing, Outlook
and Excel. Is there some sort of replacement which I could substitute? I
don't really want to run two systems unless I have to?
Thinking about it, the other things I use a lot are Total Recorder, Abby
FineReader for OCR, MoneyTalks for basic financial management and a backup
programme. Are all of these tasks easily done somehow?
Thanks,

Richard

Richard,

I can already tell you that most things are easier, but you'll see questions
from me if I find anything I simply cannot do. To be honest, a lot of stuff
is so much easier already that it's well worth it for me. There are a few
problems that have just gone away because the Mac is pretty cool really.
Unless you are a pretty serious user of something like MS Office or Kurzweil
1000, you should have few problems, but anway, you could get a Mac and run
Windows on a virtual machine using Fusion if you really had to.

Cheers
Dave

Hi,

It's one of those things, you need to work out how you're going to move your
data, and then start the process and let it run. Then, just try doing
everything on the Mac. I will aim not to use anything on the Windows side
unless I have no reasonable way of doing it on the Mac. That seems to be the
only way to get used to any new system.

Cheers
Dave

Hello everybody

It is traditional when a new member joins our group that Gordon and I try to welcome the newcomer personally. In keeping with that tradition, I would like to welcome Corey Knapp to our group.

No matter what your skill level in terms of Mac OS X or iOS, you're in good company Corey. In here you will find a positive wealth of individuals with varying skill levels; from the very new Mac or iOS user to the most skilled application developer or VoiceOver expert.

I hope you will feel free to post your questions and constructive comment. You will always receive a friendly response. In here, we pride ourselves on the fact that each and every one of us is motivated by mutual self-help.

If you have any list-related queries, please feel free to contact Gordon and myself, (the list owners), on support at mac-access.net or our very capable assistant list controller, Anne Robertson, anne at anarchie.org.uk and we'll do our best to help you.

Please be aware that anything iOS or Mac OS X is on topic for this group. In the case of virtualisation appliances such as VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop, the configuration of the virtual machine and the application itself are on topic. However, your subsequent Windows configuration within the virtual machine is off topic for this group.

And finally, we urge you to ensure that you are familiar with the list policy document which you were sent upon successful subscription. There are some pretty important things within that document you should be aware of.

Once again, welcome, Corey, to the group and we hope you find it a worthwhile place to be.

Whatever your skill level, please feel free to post your questions and constructive comments to the list. In here, you will find a wide variety of skilled individuals and not quite so skilled, but equally dedicated ones. I'm sure you'll be able to find the help or advice you need.

Anything Mac OS X or iOS is on topic for this group. In the case of virtualisation applications such as Fusion and Parallels Desktop, the configuration of the application itself and the virtual machine is on topic. The configuration of the Windows settings inside of that virtual machine is not.

If you haven't already, please read the list policy document for a list of do's and don'ts. That will probably be helpful down the track.

Hello Lynne,

Thank you for your welcome. My name is Chris Edwards and I am now seriously
looking at moving towards some Apple products but I do not have any yet. I
am therefore interested to see what people are saying about them and I hope
I will have some relevant questions when I decide which product I am going
to go for first. I look forward to learning from and participating in this
list.

Chris

Hello Listers,

Thank you for the welcome Lynne and Gordon, and thank you Esther for making me aware of this list. My name is Bryan Jones and I live in the state of Pennsylvania in the US. I've been a Mac User off and on since 1986 and was fortunate enough to already be using Tiger when my retinas began to fail several years ago as the result of a connective tissue disorder. I was able to remain productive by using OSX's built-in white-on-black and Zoom functions and I now rely mostly on VO as my vision has faded to a blurry pinpoint in the left eye. I hope that isn't TMI. <smile>

I am about to replace my macbook with a mac mini server, which will probably cause me to generate some questions to the list in the near future. I also use an iphone 4 and an ipad 3G. I recently returned to school, at the age of 48, to finish a degree in counseling psychology, a degree I put on hold 25 years ago when I stumbled into a career in I T. While I have spent many years working with various operating systems in business, the only screen reader I've used outside of OSX and IOS was Code Factory's Mobile Speak on a Windows Mobile 6 smartphone.

Again, thank you, and I look forward to being a productive member of this list.
Cheers,
Bryan

Hello everybody

It is traditional when new members join the Mac Access Dot Net group that Gordon and I try to welcome the new member(s) personally.

In keeping with that tradition, we are delighted to welcome Sean Murphy to our number.

We hope that you will find Mac-Access at mac-access.net a pleasant, friendly and worthwhile place to be.

In here you will find a wealth of knowledge, and people with a variety of skill levels ranging from the total novice, to the application developers with advanced skills. Then there are those who don't yet own a Mac, but have a keen interest.

We hope you will feel free to post your questions and constructive comment, whatever your skill levels may be. Be assured, there will be none of the ridiculing and flaming which we know takes place in other groups. That kind of behaviour is not tolerated in Mac-Access.

Anything Mac OS and iOS is on topic for this group. In the case of virtualisation applications such as Fusion and Parallels Desktop, the configuration of the applications themselves, plus the configuration of the virtual machines is on topic. However, the configuration of Windows or any other operating systems within that virtual machine is off topic. The exception to that is if you're using another instance of OSX within the virtual machine. This has always been a bit of a grey area; but we hope this clarifies the position.

Hello and thank you for welcoming me to the list. I have recently taken my
first step to apple and have purchased an I pod touch 32 gig. I do intend to
purchase a Mack book at some point next year.

It is taking me time to get to grips with the touch screen process and I
purchased an apple key board to help with the querti key board.

I am having a couple of hitches with the internet and setting up my email
accounts. It won't let me put an address in to safari and I can't seem to be
able to put my email accounts information incoming server etc for my email
accounts. I also find that whatever I am doing, it keeps changing the
language, when I go up or down and so I have to use the right and left
arrows. I know it is early days but if there is anyone who has an I pod
touch, who can give me any pointers, I would be grateful.

Apart from that I am enjoying the new experience and can't wait to buy my
Mack book. Thanks again for the welcome, Carol

You will find that support in iOS 4.1 is far superior to the previous version. But I don't know how you're going to update without iTunes. iPod relies heavily on that, so if you have a PC try the Windows version. That's off topic for this list so I won't go into detail. Please feel free to join our other list though, Techno-Chat, if you want to discuss Windows stuff.

Send a request message to:
techno-chat-request at tft-bbs.com

And do as you did with this group.

You need to make sure that focus is on the address bar in Safari. As for Mail, you need to turn on something or other in account settings, but from memory I can't remember what it was. We use iTunes to do all that configuration to be honest.

I'm sure you'll find it a different world. I am equally sure you'll find help on this list. By the way for new members, there is an offer on currently whereby Mac-Access.net members get an 80% discount on the Take Control of your Mac books. Actually, that's not quite right because there are also books about the iPod and iPhone, oh, and the iPad as well.

You can find details of the books at http://www.takecontrolbooks.com/catalog-alpha

If you're interested in buying at an 80 per cent discount, please contact support at mac-access.net for information.

Please be aware though that we are currently experiencing high levels of support requests so it might take us a little while to respond. But rest assured, we will respond if you contact us.

Now there is a name I recognise on here. Welcome Carol and I hope in time we are able to convince you to take the plunge and dip your toe into the world of Apple. Once you go Mac, you never go back!

Hope you are enjoying your iPod Touch.

We hope you will feel free to post your questions and constructive comment, whatever your skill levels may be. Be assured, there will be none of the ridiculing and flaming which we know takes place in other groups. That kind of behaviour is not tolerated in Mac-Access.

Anything Mac OS and iOS is on topic for this group. In the case of virtualisation applications such as Fusion and Parallels Desktop, the configuration of the applications themselves, plus the configuration of the virtual machines is on topic. However, the configuration of Windows or any other operating systems within that virtual machine is off topic. The exception to that is if you're using another instance of OSX within the virtual machine. This has always been a bit of a grey area; but we hope this clarifies the position.

If you have any list-related queries, please do not hesitate to contact either Gordon and myself, (the list owners), at support at mac-access.net or our very capable assistant list controller Anne Robertson, anne at anarchie.org.uk and we will be happy to help you.

Once again, a very warm welcome to the group. We hope you find your membership an enjoyable experience.

Finally, I would like to add that currently, we are offering all Mac-Access. members the opportunity to purchase the Take Control Of Your Mac publications, published by Tidbits.com, at an 80% discount.
