Remove Excess Audio/Video from a Pear Note

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you used Pear Note to record a class or meeting, then forgot to stop the recording and ended up with an extra few hours that you didn't want, don't worry. You can crop off the extra recording. Just move the playhead to the end of what you want to keep, then select Crop Recording From Here from the Edit menu.

More ARA -- Peter Kaufman <kaufman_peter@bcgmac.bcgny.com> passes along word from Cayman Systems that they have no plans to add ARA 2.0 support to the GatorLink. Mark's "ARA Options" article in TidBITS #213 conveyed our assumption that they'd upgrade in the near future. Shiva does plan an upgrade, probably late second quarter or early third quarter of 1994 (i.e. summer '94 for those in the northern hemisphere). They're not certain whether the update will be software (which can be downloaded to the device) or a firmware (ROM) swap, or a combination.

Meanwhile, Thomas Collins <ics@indirect.com> chides us for forgetting APT Communications and their hardware ARA server. Thomas says that APT's "excellent line of routers" (his company has about eighty APT units on its wide area network) includes at least one ARA unit, with three modem ports, that currently supports ARA 1.0. A software upgrade for ARA 2.0 compatibility is due in a few months.
