Today I’m looking at FileVault 2 a great security tool included in Mac OS X Lion. I’ll also show you how to encrypt a USB or external hard drive with FileVault 2.
* Be warned that if you encrypt a USB drive, Mac OS X Snow Leopard and below will not be able to read it.

We’re all not getting any younger, unfortunately. And that means our eyes like to look at things that are legible and don’t strain the eyes.
Mac OS X Lion just added higher resolution cursors which means we can now make our mouse pointer bigger without losing quality.

Just wanted to publish a quick tutorial today. I started on a little project to help a friend learn to use Apple’s iWork Pages and layout the design for her church bulletins. Below is the YouTube video.
But if this isn’t your thing, what would you like me to help you with? Leave a comment on the website or email me. I love to do these tutorial videos, but I often don’t know what would be useful or helpful.
So, if you have a question about a common program like Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Keynote, etc. Just let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
Today I want to introduce a free podcast service for churches and ministries called sermon.net.
Take a look at my video tutorial on how to Produce and Publish a Podcast…
Pages is a really powerful Design and Page Layout program. By far it’s my favorite iWork application because I use it everyday and I love how powerful and easy to use it is.
Here is a quick video tutorial on how I use it and some written steps for setting up a great design workspace.
When I open Pages, I click on “Fonts”, “Colors”, and “Inspector.” I arrange those windows like I have here. Fonts on top, Inspector and colors below and next to each other.
Then I open my file.
I click the bottom right corner and drag to make the file fill up the available screen space (I’m on a laptop so I have much less screen than you have with the imac)
On the bottom left corner is the zoom %. I change that to Fit Width so my file gets as big as my screen. Again that’s because I’m working on a laptop. You might choose 200% or something else that looks big enough to work with, while enabling you to see the layout well.
That’s how I setup my workspace. Now that I have everything open that I need, I can design to my hearts content. I can click on the various tabs in the “Inspector” panel to get to all the other options I need.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this tip!
