Tristan Turns Five -- At Macworld Expo in San Francisco five years ago, I had to leave a day earlier than planned to make it home in time for Tristan to be born. When we announced the happy event in TidBITS-463, I asked readers to send Tristan email with your thoughts on what the world is like today, what you think of our collective future, the most important lessons you've learned, and what you think of Tonya and me and the work we've accomplished over the years. More than 600 of you sent truly fabulous notes that I'm sure Tristan will be fascinated to read in ten years (at least if there isn't a member of the opposite sex in the room). In honor of his fifth birthday, which he enjoyed immensely with my sister Jennifer while we went to Macworld Expo, I'd like to ask that you once again send him email at <email@example.com> with whatever thoughts you feel he'll find interesting or important later on in life. Who knows, maybe he'll write a book about the experience some day. Thanks! [ACE]
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.
