First Annual ZMac 5K Fun Run at Macworld Expo. For those whose idea of exercise is more strenuous than channel surfing, ZiffNet/Mac is holding a 5K (right, 5,120 bytes) fun run at Macworld. I'll definitely be there, along with a number of the sysops, staff, and members of ZiffNet/Mac (and maybe even a MacWEEK reporter or MacUser editor). The run starts at 8:30 AM on Saturday morning, 08-Jan-94. Meet in the parking lot of the Ferry Building at the end of Market Street where it meets the Embarcadero next to the Bay. As you look out over the Bay at the end of Market Street, the Ferry Building is just to the left. Bagels and coffee will be provided after the run. To sign up and insure your share of the bagels, send email to Ben Templin at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Record Online Meetings in Pear Note
While Pear Note is primarily geared toward recording notes in the physical world, it's possible to use it to record things in the virtual world as well. For instance, you can use it to record and take notes on Skype calls. To do this:
- Download Soundflower and install it (along with the Soundflowerbed app that comes with it).
- Download LineIn and install it.
- Start Soundflowerbed, and select Built-in Output (or whatever output you'd like to listen to the conversation on).
- Start LineIn, and select your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the input and Soundflower (2ch) as the output, then press Pass Thru.
- Open Pear Note Preferences, select Recording, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio device.
- Open Skype Preferences, select Audio, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio output and your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the audio input.
- Hit record in Pear Note and make your Skype call.
This will allow you to conduct your Skype call while Pear Note records both your audio and the other participant's.
