Record Online Meetings in Pear Note

While Pear Note is primarily geared toward recording notes in the physical world, it's possible to use it to record things in the virtual world as well. For instance, you can use it to record and take notes on Skype calls. To do this:

  1. Download Soundflower and install it (along with the Soundflowerbed app that comes with it).
  2. Download LineIn and install it.
  3. Start Soundflowerbed, and select Built-in Output (or whatever output you'd like to listen to the conversation on).
  4. Start LineIn, and select your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the input and Soundflower (2ch) as the output, then press Pass Thru.
  5. Open Pear Note Preferences, select Recording, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio device.
  6. Open Skype Preferences, select Audio, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio output and your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the audio input.
  7. Hit record in Pear Note and make your Skype call.

This will allow you to conduct your Skype call while Pear Note records both your audio and the other participant's.

Microsoft Updates Entourage Spam Filter

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Updates Entourage Spam Filter -- Microsoft has released Junk E-mail Filter Update 1 for Microsoft Entourage 2004 via the package's Microsoft AutoUpdate utility (if you've set it not to check automatically, choose Help > Check for Updates from any Office 2004 application to launch AutoUpdate). The 2.9 MB update includes more current definitions of which email messages should be considered junk; since Entourage 2004 relies on spam definitions developed and constantly adjusted by Microsoft, updates are essential to keep the spam filter working. For more information on using Entourage 2004's junk mail filter, see Tom Negrino's "Take Control of What's New in Entourage 2004" ebook; it includes a coupon for $5 off Michael Tsai's excellent SpamSieve utility if you would prefer to use a Bayesian-based approach to filtering spam that learns from the mail you actually receive.
