Rogue Amoeba has released a minor update to their minimalist audio recording app Piezo, which fixes an issue that prevented the application from recording audio from Skype on the just-released Mac OS X 10.7.3. Piezo 1.1.2 also brings compatibility with recording audio from the Toktumi and MagicJack VoIP apps. The update is rounded out by an assortment of bug fixes and improvements.

Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
