Barry's Musing

I would like to extend a warm welcome to members of the Computer and Technology Group, Area 16 of the SIR group. For those of you visiting for the first time links to the other pages are on the left. As I am a member of both entities I am going to make the SIG pages common to both the DVPC user group and with the CAT area 16 Group. So any CAT members who want to submit pictures for the SIG gallery or ideas for tutorials please don't hesitate, I welcome new material and ideas! Also if anyone has bought or read a new book and would like to submit a review that would be appreciated.

For newcomers to the site please visit "Book Reviews" where I will try to give honest previews of books I purchase or receive from publishers, both computer related and others. I also welcome reviews from third parties, if you have recently purchased a new computer or technology related book please feel free to send me a review. I am considering expanding this to more than books to include anything I purchase that might be of interest to others. I would also like your input here, have you purchased something recently, (a new camera, computer, car, software, gadget etc.) that you really like or don't like, lemons are welcome, why don't you write a review and I will put it up here.

Check out also the SIG Gallery page. I am posting interesting photographs sent in by SIG members or from anyone in the CAT group or anyone else with a distinctive image so get yours onto the web!

I have added a page titled "Shipping etc." which some of you might find interesting. It has taken me quite some time to put all this together but I hope you like it. Let me know by clicking on the e-mail link on the left and giving me your input.

I will try to update the content of this site at least monthly and should you have any contributions in the way of photographs to add to the gallery, additional useful links, good (or bad) books you have read or any other reviews please let me know and I will include them in the site.

The latest issue of the Elements SIG quarterly newsletter, December, 2018 is posted.

Also read the "Book Reviews" page for the latest Elements books and some non computer book reviews.

For DVPC Elements SIG and CAT members I have now added more tutorials, there are now more than twenty on the Elements SIG Tutorials page The last addition "Color Management between Camera and Printer" has been added.

To create this site I have used Adobe Creative Suite 5, Web Premium,which includes Dreamweaver CS5 and Photoshop CS5. I still use Webstyle4 by Xara for creating flash buttons etc. If you are into web design you certainly need Dreamweaver although it is expensive. Xara on the other hand is priced quite modestly.

I use 1 & 1 for my web hosting, a great service at very reasonable prices. They beat anyone including GoDaddy and Yahoo and their service is excellent. Click on the banner ad on the left for further details.
