  1. Wow! This is my first time all the way to to the end in very long time. I’m glad though I’m here. I planned to attend meetings on Wednesdays but didn’t make it….will make in the Fall though.

    1. We are glad you enjoyed our classes. If you are on Facebook, you can also post your comment there. We have information and others in the group who post on our Facebook page. This is great for when we are in between class schedules. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

  2. I installed SuperDuper on my iMac to back up my internal hard drive to a LaCie external hard drive. In the process I somehow managed to schedule 2 separate backups—one at noon and one at 5 p.m. The problem is that the noon backup is a complete backup. I wanted it to be like the later backup and just backup any changes, because a complete backup is unnecessary and time consuming. I deleted the noon backup and now can’t figure out how to reschedule it without changing the 5 p.m. backup. I’ve searched online and gone thru the user’s guide, but no luck. Any advice will be appreciated.

  3. Attended the Wed meeting with Don in the chair , my question Don can you let me have the method of shutting down my MacBook Air that you addressed on Wed. I already installed the dictation and it is really good.
    Interesting talk

  4. I took pictures with my iPhone that synced with my iPad but not my MacBook Pro. How do I get that to happen? I never had a problem before.

    1. If you are using iCloud drive, all photos you take on all devices appears in the cloud and then can be downloaded to all devices.

      If you are using photo stream, it has to be turned on on all your devices using the same Apple ID.

      On your Mac go to system preferences, iCloud, photos and check one of those boxes.

      On your iDevices, go to settings, iCloud, photos and check one of those boxes.

      Be sure you check the same boxes on all devices.

  5. I need to get a new password. My old one doesn’t work. I’ve tried on the website but I get no response.

    Pls help me reset and get new password. Last week I tried and received an email which went to spam. I didn’t see it until it had expired.

  7. Can someone help me with getting my picture onto my NMUG site. Telling me to follow the instructions in Gravitar does not appear to work, appreciate any advice here. The Cloud lecture yesterday was EXCELLENT !!

    1. In Gravatar, you have to create an account and upload your picture there, noting that the link of the website is to NaplesMUG.com

    2. I have posted detailed instructions on how to add your photo to your profile.

      Click here
      or click the Update your information tab in the sidebar to the left. I hope this helps!

      We look forward to “seeing” you soon…

      1. Thank you Marty I finally took the time to get my picture into the site.The reason I have been absent is because I have a tennis match that was set up around 11AM on Wed. I will change this asap….John

    3. Q1 Well I tried but FAILED again, the list of actions was confusing and again did not work.

      Q2 Guys How do I sync my iPhone (Apple 5s) and my IPAD with my MacBook Air. I have purchased 1PW.
      Also I do not have a secret key and a set up code with my 1PW account. If I did I have NO idea where it is. I am trying to sync my iPhone and iPad with my 1PW account on my MacBook Air.

      1Password Version: 6.6
      Extension Version: ? I do not understand this
      OS Version: OS 10 12 3

      Any help much appreciated, John

  8. I’d appreciate hearing about members’ experiences/thoughts regarding WhatsApp and Signal. I have read that WhatsApp shares users’ data with FaceBook (if one agrees with their T & Cs.)

    1. Meetings resume in the fall at the central library. Look for dates and times here. Generally we meet every Wednesday at 11:30 AM.

  9. I am unable to up-date my address contact information……..the screen will only allow me to up-date my name?

    1. You must be logged in to update your information.

      If you still haven’t been able to do it online, please email me and we will update for you. Sorry for the difficulty.

  10. NEW ON THE NaplesMUG.com WEBSITE:

    TOPIC FORUMS have been added to the Top and Side Menus. These are by SUBJECT postings in addition to NMUG’s usual By Date format. This should be a help to those of you who are looking for a particular subject.

    Two tabs under Topic Forums/Applications Forum have been added linking to Apple sites for Members who want to download GarageBand for MacOS or iOS after Jim Corsica’s presentation last Wednesday.

    There are also now several places where you can add comments.

    A Member Suggestions tab is added at the Top menu and under Classes in the Side menu for your ideas for class subjects for next season.

    Feel free to explore the website and to make suggestions as to other enhancements you would like to see.

  12. When I am signing in I am not getting the Welcome page but the following:
    Not Found
    Nothing was found at this location. Maybe try a search
    Can you let me know if there is a problem?
    Thanks for your help.

    1. Everything seems to be working fine. I note that you did sign in successfully as you had also on prior days.

      I’d suggest logging out, clearing your cache and history in Safari and then log back in. Please let me know if the issue persists.

      Thanks

  13. This is the second email NMUG has sent saying “sign on”. Why are we singing on? And how do we know we have done so?

    1. Thanks Mary. You know that you registered once you sign on. Your name appears in the upper right tool bar. You can change your password and edit your profile there as well. Just click on your name for the choice.

      The emails asking everyone to sign on are to promote the club’s members to use the site.

      The board hopes that all registrations, membership starts and renewals, and class registrations will be done this way in the future. This simplifies bookkeeping and handling by Members and by those volunteers who maintain the club and its organization.

      We also have Member restricted content, like the class notes etc which are only available by signing in.

      Thanks for your support.

      Marty
