If you ever find yourself in a situation where you used Pear Note to record a class or meeting, then forgot to stop the recording and ended up with an extra few hours that you didn't want, don't worry. You can crop off the extra recording. Just move the playhead to the end of what you want to keep, then select Crop Recording From Here from the Edit menu.

Menu Bars So Clean, They Seem To Disappear

I guess I've just dated myself with the title of this little blog entry (it comes from a Windex ad from when I was a kid).

Anyhow, I know I promised not to talk about this any more, but I've been running Leopard full-time for two days now and I just can't deal with the menu bar. It isn't translucent; it's transparent. I mean I can see right through it, so I can't see it! This is atrocious.


How on earth was this allowed to happen? My guess is that the people at Apple only tested with some artificial, highly uniform desktop images. Put a real picture on the desktop and the menubar becomes downright chaotic - a riot of color. It makes me feel a little seasick, actually.
