I enjoyed my visit to the MUG and will return!</p> <p>After doing some thinking, and learning, it seems that a Raid 5 is not a backup solution. I'm wondering if a Raid 1 with say 8 drives (4 net) would be a better solution for a home media server... say like Plex.</p> <p>Thoughts? </p> <p>Ron</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=13&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="Ou6y29anVjWqLTSkfLj1VBJgcbZCKOzE9EDLesNaUnY"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> </article> <a id="comment-14"></a> <article role="article" data-comment-user-id="3796" class="comment js-comment clearfix"> <span class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1466652215"></span> <footer class="comment__meta"> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/index.php/users/ron-l" class="profile"> </article> <p class="comment__author"><a title="View user profile." href="/index.php/users/ron-l" lang="" about="/index.php/users/ron-l" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Ron L</a></p> <p class="comment__time">Wed, 2016-06-22 21:23</p> <p class="comment__permalink"><a href="/index.php/comment/14#comment-14" hreflang="en">Permalink</a></p> </footer> <div class="comment__content"> <h3><a href="/index.php/comment/14#comment-14" class="permalink" rel="bookmark" hreflang="en">More...</a></h3> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=14&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="skGpcZFoOquSlGTFo25a2VqyLi62sXtq0hba2qkOIow"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> </article> </section> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Next meeting: Tuesday, 12 May 2020, Virtual Meeting</p> <p>First Half Hour at 6 PM<br /> Virtual Main Presentation about 6:45 PM</p> <p>Topic: Apple Maps &amp; iCloud Folder Sharing w/ Steve Sande</p> <p>We will continue with our virtual meetings via Zoom. Expect the invitation to appear in members' email up to 1 day before the meeting with the exact time of the meeting --  probably about 6:45 PM</p> <p>Steve Sande will be joining us to talk about two topics; Apple Maps &amp; iCloud Folder Sharing. Apple Maps has many new features, including those designed to help with the pandemic. iCloud Folder Sharing is a new feature that works in iOS 13.4, macOS 10.15.4 Catalina or on the web using iCloud Drive.</p> <p>Apple Maps now has better coverage, pedestrian data, detailed land cover, and 3D coverage in major cities. iCloud Folder Sharing allows you to share entire folders of files with friends and coworkers. These are terrific updates, so join the virtual meeting and learn how to use them!</p> <p>(for non-pandemic months) The meeting is at the Metrum Credit Union, 1/3 of a mile south of Arapahoe on the east side of Holly in Centennial. The doors will open at 6 PM, and the visit time will be from 6 PM to 6:30 PM. A good time to ask questions and get advice from fellow members!</p> <p>(for non-pandemic months) As always, we will meet about 5 PM at the Panera Bread on the SE corner of Holly and Orchard for a little supper.</p> </div> Sun, 28 Oct 2018 00:28:37 +0000 Brad Tombaugh 23 at http://macintech.org http://macintech.org/index.php/may-2020-meeting#comments Presentation Downloads http://macintech.org/index.php/presentation-downloads <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Presentation Downloads</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/index.php/user/1" lang="" about="/index.php/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">macintech</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 2018-12-02 19:27</span> <section class="field field--name-comment-node-story field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> </section> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Below are downloads from presentations from recent meetings: (Click the "Read More" link to display)</p></div> <div class="field field--name-upload field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="http://macintech.org/sites/default/files/2018-12/Smart%20Home%20Automation%20Article.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=60699" title="Smart Home Automation Article.pdf">Smart Home Automation Article by Brad Tombaugh</a></span> </div> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="http://macintech.org/sites/default/files/2018-12/Smart%20Home%20Automation%20Presentation.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=60343" title="Smart Home Automation Presentation.pdf">Smart Home Automation Presentation by Brad Tombaugh</a></span> </div> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="http://macintech.org/sites/default/files/2018-12/Siri_Shortcuts.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=1357819" title="Siri_Shortcuts.pdf">Siri Shortcuts by Rick Hyman</a></span> </div> </div> Mon, 03 Dec 2018 02:27:00 +0000 macintech 29 at http://macintech.org http://macintech.org/index.php/presentation-downloads#comments March '20 SIG Meeting http://macintech.org/index.php/march-20-sig-meeting <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">March &#039;20 SIG Meeting</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/index.php/users/brad-tombaugh" lang="" about="/index.php/users/brad-tombaugh" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Brad Tombaugh</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 2018-10-28 09:31</span> <section class="field field--name-comment-node-story field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> </section> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Next Meeting: Thursday, 26 March 2020;  suspended</p> <p>Program:  TBD</p> <p>Metrum Credit Union has closed the meeting room to community meetings as of 12 March.
