At our next meeting we will take a look at the recently released update to Mac OS X called Mountain Lion.
Mountain Lion continues the theme of carrying over user interface elements from the iPhone and iPad to the desktop where deemed appropriate as well as advancing the underlying core operating system.
I hope you can join us on Wednesday to take a look at some of the new bells and whistles to see for yourselves if any of the new enhancements justify the modest £13.99 upgrade fee.
My sincerest apologies that we were forced to cancel last month's Linux Update evening at short notice. It was not a decision I took lightly but unfortunately our usual venue was unable to accommodate us and it was too late in the day to secure another venue in and around Ipswich. With that in mind my main concern was to inform everyone to avoid unnecessary journeys.
We will reschedule the Linux evening for another date in the future calendar.
Nothing particular to report this month.

"ICENI does not have any Insurance cover for computers or other equipment so please be advised that you bring machines to the club at your own risk."
However many household insurance policies will include cover away from home often with no increase in premium. (Ed.)
Our website has had to be moved since BT is no longer giving free hosting to customers and Peter was running the old website on his account. So Gareth has been fortunate to register a web address of our own and has generously hosted it on his own woolridge domain. All our old website data has been ported to the new site and a redirection placed on the old address. The old site will disappear some time soon
If anyone would like a copy of the CD of our old newsletters this could be arranged.
I am open to suggestions on what people would like to have included in the website.
