A Picture is worth a thousand words (part 2)!

If your unlike me and you know exactly what you do every minute you are working away on your computer, then disregard the remainder of this.

If, however you often get to a point, and wonder what you did in the last hour (because the work has been coming quick and fast), then this may be a solution.

Simply run AutoIT script to capture you screen every ten minutes…

Then when you get those times, where you’re not sure what you were doing and more importantly where to send the bill, your screen may tell the story… You can just review the screen grabs of who you were working for.

Well I think it’s useful, but them I’m probably the only one who forgets all the things I’ve been doing…… I must be getting old.!!!

PS, if you want to know more, then email me your interest – offline.

A picture (video) is worth a thousand words!

Problem: demonstrating an intricate problem is almost impossible – replicating it is harder again!

I can hear it now – “we can’t fix it because we can’t replicate it!” or “I have followed your written instructions, but I don’t get the same result as you describe”

quod erat demonstrandum – FAIL! or more an impass has been reached.

Solution: Screen cast it, and it’s free!

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. For those of us who don’t sit in the next office with that developer we need to inform about the specifics of a particular problem we are trying to replicate, Screen casting is very much a solution. Not only that, but it provides a record for others to reference.

Importantly, though you can add your own voice comments as you do it.

Oh, and it’s free, it works.

Why do I think it’s good? – because anything that can cut down the time back and forth trying to prove an issue, and demonstrate it such that it is beyond dispute – has to better for all of us.

And, for anyone already using this…. Cool!!

PS: if you need something to play the shockwave files check out http://www.globfx.com/products/swfplayer/ – Also – it’s free!

PPS: get with the modern age.!
