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.

The Case of the Tardy TidBITS

Send Article to a Friend

The Case of the Tardy TidBITS -- During the last week, some of you have been receiving old issues of TidBITS via email, some dating back as far as mid-March.We had received a significant number of reports of missing issues during the last several weeks, but weren't able to pinpoint a problem: from our end of things, everything looked normal. No errors were returned to us, our hosting provider digital.forest wasn't able to identify any troubles from their logs, and we had been sending the issues on time. After a few weeks of scratching our heads, we re-jiggered parts of our distribution process in an effort to get more information. Those changes seem to have cleared up the missing issue problems, but we never isolated the original cause.

Now we know: a mail server at digital.forest underwent a series of upgrades in early March as part of an effort to address security issues, and the result was that mail in several outgoing spools was not being sent, including a number of TidBITS issues. The folks at digital.forest have corrected the problem and the backlogged mail is all being delivered. So if you receive some out-of-date TidBITS issues, our apologies for the tardy delivery!
