Open Transport 1.1b16 Public Beta -- Apple has a released a public beta of Open Transport 1.1, which addresses many existing problems plus runs on both 68K and Power Macintosh machines. The beta is unsupported (so you can't ask Apple for help) and is only recommended for experienced users familiar with their network configuration; however, users of PCI Power Macs might be particularly interested in the release. The beta does not function on Performa 5200, 5300, 6200, and 6300 computers, along with the Macintosh IIvi, and Apple also recommends against installing it on the PowerBook 190, 2300, and 5300, or on PowerBook 540s running System 7.5.2. Be sure to check out the ReadMe files and notes before installing; so far, reports I've seen indicate that the beta is functioning well. There are two installations available, one with a set of floppy disk images and one as an all-in-one Net Install; both are a little over 2.5 MB in size. [GD]
Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note
While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:
- Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
- Hit play.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.
