Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

Nitro PowerPlug Speeds WebSTAR

Send Article to a Friend

Nitro PowerPlug Speeds WebSTAR -- ClearWay Technologies is shipping the $99 Nitro PowerPlug 1.0, a WebSTAR plug-in that accelerates the execution speed of all other WebSTAR plug-ins up to 200 percent or more in ClearWay's testing. Nitro PowerPlug is a specialized replacement memory manager for WebSTAR, which otherwise relies on the standard Mac OS memory manager which is optimized for large stand-alone applications. ClearWay also reports that Nitro PowerPlug helps eliminate server slowdowns that occur after a WebSTAR server has been running for a long time without a restart, plus reduces crashes related to fragmented memory. Nitro PowerPlug works with WebSTAR versions 1.3.2 through 3.0, on both PowerPC- and 68K-based machines. It may work with (but doesn't officially support) other Web servers that support WebSTAR plug-ins, such as Quid Pro Quo, SonicWeb Server, WebTen, and the Microsoft Personal Web Server. A free demo is available (278K download). [ACE]
