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:

  1. Download Soundflower and install it (along with the Soundflowerbed app that comes with it).
  2. Download LineIn and install it.
  3. Start Soundflowerbed, and select Built-in Output (or whatever output you'd like to listen to the conversation on).
  4. Start LineIn, and select your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the input and Soundflower (2ch) as the output, then press Pass Thru.
  5. Open Pear Note Preferences, select Recording, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio device.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

Mizer Gets Wiser -- Antimony Software has released Mizer 1.5.3, an update to its drag & drop utility for squeezing bytes out of bloated HTML files. (See "HTML Crunchers Fuel Compression Obsession" in TidBITS-453.) Mizer accomplishes this reduction by eliminating HTML comments, line breaks, and other characters ignored by Web browsers. Version 1.5 introduces several changes to the program, including the display of more information during file processing, an improved parsing engine (which also intelligently trims JavaScript code), and the capability to optimize JPEG images in addition to HTML files. Mizer also adds support for the Appearance Manager and Navigation Services; because of this, Mizer now requires a PowerPC-based system running at least System 7.5.5 with the Appearance Manager. The update is free to registered users (you may need to apply several incremental updates to get the most recent version). Otherwise, Mizer can be purchased online for $70. [JLC]
