LazyWeb: how to use my mac as a quick & easy sound-recording device? QT Broadcaster doesn't seem to work any more...

Audacity: cluttered ugly window. No button saying "click here to record". Nothing useful under the file menu. FAIL.

Wednesday 9:11 ·
Aaaah... click on the greyed-out red circle. Of course.
Wednesday 9:13 ·
Me: Export as MP3. Audacity: Would you like me to search for LAME.dylib? FAIL.
