Now, I must be honest with you, my friend. While I'm super excited to share this plugin with you, I haven't set up any restrictions just yet. Please don't go overboard and use it excessively. Why, you ask? Well, the ChatGPT API, which powers Fleeting Notes, comes with some costs, and I want to ensure it remains accessible for everyone (i.e. don't hit my spending cap). In the future, I plan to add restrictions to allow this plugin to better serve everyone.

You can fine-tune it using the metadata within the plugin command settings, enabling you to tailor the summaries to your liking. Talk about customization at your fingertips!
