Re: BIAFF 2018

From what I hear on the grapevine the problem with paying expenses is not unwillingness by the Treasurer ... but a reluctance by some of the committee to accept them.

Re: Show reel formats

If you have films on a USB stick, is there way to have a menu? My Blu-Ray Player accepts USB sticks but presents the filename of each film complete with file extension like "xxx.mp4" Some club presentation systems have problems selecting the required film.

Re: Val Ellis

Val's funeral was very well attended. I think Michael & Linda Gough and Brian Dunckley came from furthest North, while the farthest journey from the South was by Richard and Afifa Rouillard. David Andrew, her long-time friend and club colleague had written a super eulogy, which was read perfectly by...

Re: Val Ellis

Her great friend for many, many years - Gerald Mee - spoke to her on the phone in the morning. She passed away in the afternoon. She was able to stay in her own home, with the support of her sister, until the end. She retained her mental capacities too. Those things would be very important to her. S...

Re: Creative Soundscape Videos

OK, I tweaked your post, John. The trouble is changing YouTube formats. a) go to the YouTube video and play it. b) While it plays copy the full URL such as "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEnwCBLR8yc&feature=youtu.be" c) on the forum post click the "youtube2" button at the top of the post which dro...
