  1. Mac Users: please email Lumion A request for a Mac version! Ask all your Mac /VW contacts to do the same.
  2. Andrew, lighten up on the Caffeine! VW forums are not the place for personal attacks. What conspiracy theory? Just noting a news story about new illnesses showing up on the African continent as a result of large numbers of people arriving from other parts of the world. This is completely expected. Cultures previously not exposed to each other share germs and viruses which previously they developed immunity for. Repeated many times in history.
  3. YES! even the Chinese projects in Africa....massive numbers of workers are bringing new illnesses that previously were unknown to the continent. The Law of Unintended Consequences strikes often.
  4. Google the fascinating story of overrun field hospitals dealing w/ Spanish Flu. Doctors has to put infected patients outside in sun and fresh air. They were shocked to find those outside recovered 40% better than those inside. Part of the downside of modern living: too much indoors !
  5. My friends, I don't make light of the risk to older people, or those with existing health issues (particularly respiratory). My main point is that is simply is NOT as more lethal vs any other flu. Yes, more contagious. So you could say on that note more lethal, but for otherwise healthy people, no. Hearts out to Italy, which is harder hit for unknown reasons. My comments refer to the US only: Here's where most miscalculate mortality in the "numbers": the huge majority of infected (story this week estimates as high as 86%), don't know they have it. Either their symptoms are mild ( not everyone is bedridden by Corona) or they get over it in 2 days at home, not seeing a doctor. SO, the calculated mortality rate is vastly over-estimated. Net mortality will be 1 to 1.5% of reported cases. Still very average for garden variety flu. Actually mortality will be far below 1%. Simple numbers...even if the estimate is 50% cases unreported. Stay healthy!
  6. BAHAHAHA It's a virus. It's different from others but still a variant of SARS and SWINE Flu. Get YOUR facts straight: high numbers of deaths do not equal high MORTALITY. CDC :1629 cased REPORTED (tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands have been exposed in US), 41 DEATHS Sorry for those it killed but it's not the Ebola virus. Higher death rates (still not dramatic) in other countries because of 3rd world medical treatment and conditions. SO...if it's no worse than other flu's, are we going to panic again Every flu season...every cold virus that comes along? Oh my..do you know how many in the US died from last year's flu? Why are we not panicked about that? flu.pdf
  7. Dear brothers and sisters, you are licensed to use COMMON SENSE. IF there were a death rate above 2% (in the US) THAT would be all over the news. 2-4% is completely average for the Flu. It's the elderly and people with other health problems who are at risk, as with ...the flu (SEE CDC Website yourself). The news is in fact , news about the panic. Again: another variety of the flu. Be well !
  8. Sorry people...not buying it. Where are the mass deaths in US from Corona? NOT there because it's the flu, and only the flu. If this were Ebola, of course cautions. But really? Everyone panics but no one can say why. Sad
  9. AND...refunds for deposit on Hotel and airfare?
  10. It would be great to have VW incorporate Apple's Continuity feature; a live import from Phone or iPad directly into VW. Photos, scans & sketches! https://macmost.com/using-continuity-camera-and-continuity-sketch-with-your-iphone-or-ipad-and-your-mac.html
  11. After decades of wishing VW comes to the iPad ! (I posted a photoshopped image of MiniCad on an Apple Newton 2000 many moons ago...) With Mac OS 10.15, the iPad Pro becomes another monitor, wired or wireless. Obviously wired is better... Virtually no lag. The Apple Pencil becomes your mouse, and you can't use fingers on iPad except for pinch zoom. But all works as expected; it's just a small monitor. Caution: you can't (yet) ALSO have an external display connected to a laptop, to have 3 screens for example. I confirmed a bug with Apple where the Apple Pencil in that setup is mis-aligned on the iPad screen. A lot, so it's not useable as a mouse. So, no, we're not running the VW App, per se, but it's a second VW screen for users.
  12. Possibly an anomaly on the one machine. Testing on other iMacs...slowly
  13. It's been maybe 10 years since a Mac OS update caused this much headache. I get that systems have to progress, but wow. Going to update a standalone Mac today for fun. Our Mac used as a server (just a regular Mac) has always been so stable...my mistake.
  14. Well today’s foray into OS 10.15 did not go well. I don’t remember the last Mac update with this much trouble. OS File sharing Was damaged in the iMac hosting files. We could open them but all were “ not able to be modified”, despite permissions wide open as always on the local network. Had to transfer project files to external drive, erase the iMac and install Mojave from a boot drive. VW and other software programs couldn’t edit or save their respective files. Not even a good testing session as this trashed a full half day on recovery. anyone have success ?
  15. Jonathan, this forum is a good place to post. You might ask VW Staff as well. Nice video. Very similar to the workflow in my office (Texas)
