Screencasting Practice & Feedback: 00004

Plan

  • Evaluate sound-dampening foam
  • Record the audio and video simultaneously in a conversational style and edit the video to fit the time-line
    • Love conversational style; curious about how to reduce it to the core content

Execution

Preparation

  • Minimal

Execution

  • Spoke more loudly

Post Production

  • Minimal
    • Added logo
    • Sped up video content to make it fit the time-line or removed some

Outcome & Feedback

  • Spent only 2 hours and I’m happy with the result
  • Conversation (audio and video) were recorded separately from the content. It is difficult not to synchronize them but rather to make them work well together. In this screencast, the content more or less makes sense. I think that I could do it better.
  • Weighing the balance between getting the content out there in an imperfect form versus planning forever and rarely publishing anything.
  • Missed light misplacement hilariously causing humongous eyebrows

Easily Browse Imenu Entries In A Buffer

Imenu is an under-recognized gem of a package. One way to make it more accessible is to utilize it via a buffer instead of going up to a menu.

imenu-list does just that. It is shockingly powerful because nearly every package has Imenu integration, it is fast, easy to read, and lets you quickly jump around and exit the mode just as easily as you entered it.

Easily Dust With A Damp Microfiber Cloth

Having grown up with Lemon Pledge I found that the lemon scent was the only pleasant thing about dusting with it. The endless wiping which just spread the dust around was… not fun. My dad mentioned he switched to dusting with a damp microfiber cloth. Wow. It rocks. The world needs to know about these things. Best of all: when you are finished, just wash them and hang them to dry, no paper waste at all!
