Avoid Naming Pear Note Files

If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:

  1. Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
  2. Select a default save location.
  3. Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
  4. Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
  5. If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

digital.forest Celebrates 10th Year -- Congratulations to Chuck Goolsbee, Chris Kilbourn, Bill Dickson, and our other friends at digital.forest, who are celebrating the company's tenth year in the Web hosting and server co-location business. Many other hosting firms have come and gone in that time, but it's a testament to digital.forest's service that we've been extremely happy since moving our servers there in January of 2000. They've done a great job over the years of baby-sitting our geriatric Power Mac 7100 and 7600 and helping set up the shiny Xserve that runs Web Crossing. Happy birthday, folks! [ACE]
