Apple Contacts / Address Book exports its records as vCard files or as Address Book Archives. The problem is that these formats cannot be read by Apple Numbers or FileMaker Pro (version 12).

Thomas Bruederli created this useful and free utility to make the process easy. You may download the files and place them on a computer with PHP installed. Or you may use the web application that Bruederli installed on his web site’s server.

HI Touch Learning Clinics
Part One of the morning session: We’ll be exploring eMail from Nuts to Bolts. On completion of this mini workshop attendees will have a basic understanding of email. Topics will include eMail etiquette, best practices and good eMail management skills. Attendees will receive their Internet Email Driver’s License at the conclusion of the workshop.

Part Two of the morning session: Terrence Young will lead the HI Touch Chat portion. He will be moderating the future of eMail. HI Touch is not a lecture, it’s a conversation.

We’ll also have an HI Touch Tech Open Help Clinic in the afternoon session. For those of you unfamiliar with HI Touch Tech… it’s a FREE open-forum help clinic. We’ll field questions and puzzles you bring and explore solutions and fixes. It’s a simple format based on knowledge sharing amongst peers. No lectures, no agenda, no Apple dogma, just tech talk.

So if you have questions about your hardware, software or the network—how to do it, how to fix it, how to understand it—come to HI Touch.

When: Saturday, September 13; 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Where: ZenWorx, 685 Auahi Street
