Connectix Releases Free RAM Doubler 9 Update -- Perhaps the most essential utility that fell prey to compatibility problems with the release of Mac OS 9 was Connectix's RAM Doubler 8, which replaces Apple's built-in virtual memory scheme with alternative methods of increasing the amount of memory available to applications. It does this by first reclaiming unused memory from other applications, then by compressing memory in use so it takes less space, and finally by swapping the contents of memory out to disk. (See "Free RAM Doubler 8 Update" in TidBITS-439 and "RAM Doubler 2" TidBITS-351 for more details.) Connectix has finally released a free update to RAM Doubler 9 that adds no new features but makes RAM Doubler compatible with Mac OS 9. If you've been missing RAM Doubler since upgrading to Mac OS 9, it's well worth downloading. Unfortunately, Connectix also stated that it has no plans to update the popular SpeedDoubler 8 or Surf Express Deluxe for Mac OS 9. [ACE]

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.
