Recent bonehead moves

[ #23097 ]

Stuff I've done recently that made me feel like an idiot:

  • I ordered Screentool so I can do screen/video captures for OpenInteract demos/advocacy. (It's only $12, vs. $80 for Snapz Pro which all the cool Ruby kids use). So I got the confirmation email from the service they use but didn't see a registration key. So I waited a day or two and finally emailed them. It turned out the key was in the email but I just had to scroll down. Stupid! (My mail window really looked like the email was complete...)
  • Work strongly encourages volunteer/charity work. And one of the things people do every year is a 150 mile bike ride (over two days) up to Erie. I went to the intro meeting and got all excited about getting in shape, riding my bike again, springtime, etc. But when I got home and told Barb she said, "Doesn't that hurt your guys?" Stupid! I didn't even think about that, bad husband. So the bike ride will have to wait until next year, unless conditions change in the next month or so...

Loading... please wait.
  • Vnc2swf is a screen recording tool for X-Window (X11), Windows and Mac OS Desktop. Vnc2swf captures live motion of a screen through VNC protocol and converts it a Macromedia Flash(TM) movie (.swf).

    Sample movies are on the site:
  • I have found that SnapZ really bogs down my machine when trying to do the movie thing.

    Otherwise, I absolutely love it.

    Anyways... what I do when I want to do a movie is hook the composite out to my PC's video capture card. Then I do whatever I want on the laptop...

    When I'm done, I edit the file and add voiceover, etc...

    Since the capture is done on a seperate machine, there is not a problem with the application bogging down.
