Avoid Naming Pear Note Files

If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:

  1. Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
  2. Select a default save location.
  3. Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
  4. Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
  5. If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

Psion Updates -- Patrick Edmond <edmond@quincy.inria.fr> writes: "As a Psion Series 3 owner, I can echo Charlie Stross's comments in TidBITS #203 about the usefulness of the Psion machine. One little correction though: the mailing list mentioned is no longer in operation."

Jack Kobzeff <jkobzeff@sybil.jpl.nasa.gov> writes: "You can purchase the Psion Series 3 for a list price of $399 from Psion's U.S. direct sales arm. For information and other pricing call 508/371-9875," and Masato Ogawa <ogawa@ga.sony.co.jp> noted that CompUSA and Fry's Electronics also carry the Psion, according to an ad in a recent PC Magazine.
