Poll Results: How Would You Like Your TidBITS? We're considering adding options for receiving TidBITS via email, so last week we asked how you'd most prefer to receive TidBITS to gauge interest in alternative formats. Just over 2,400 readers responded, with the overwhelming majority (75 percent) saying they'd prefer to receive TidBITS exactly the way it's available now, with the complete issue sent as plain text via email. However, 25 percent said they'd prefer another option if it were available: roughly 15 percent wanted complete issues in HTML format, and about 10 percent said they'd prefer instead to receive brief announcements in either HTML or text format. Though we explicitly said we were thinking of adding email subscription options, some people thought were planning to do away with the plain text edition. That's not the case: we plan to continue publishing issues as plain text email messages so long as there's interest. We're not yet sure what form additional subscription options will take, but we now have a better idea how to focus our efforts. Thanks for your input! [GD]
Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note
While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:
- Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
- Hit play.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.
