Replay Video Capture software is the best way to make production quality videos from hard-to-record sources, including:
ANY Video Web Site, using ANY streaming protocol
Video Chat sessions
This has to be one of my favourite pieces of software out there, unfortunately its only for windows platforms so i tend to keep windows 7 in virtual box for the purpose of using this. Recently i had a friend looking for some way to capture his screen for the sole purpose of doing tutorials , someone pointed him to a $300 application , but me being the frugal scotsman pointed him in this direction , he was impressed and apparently the only thing it lacked was some kind of pointer , i suggested using a red cursor whilst doing the tutorials to act as the missing pointer.
We all from time to time would like the idea of capturing whatever is on our screens , be it a video , picture , or even if someone in your G+ hangout is playing with a truncheon, i find this app to do the job exceedingly well, have a look at the video below and if u feel its something you could use i just might be able to help.

Superb mouse. Excellent build quality and very comfortable to use and with great tracking resolution. The nano receiver is very small and unobtrusive. I paired this mouse with the k340 wireless keyboard and the package is a huge improvement over my previous microsoft multimedia set-up. The logitech unifying software (which you download seperatley) works very easily to help install , another plus is u can add up to 4 logitech products onto the one nano receiver. Very happy with this purchase. It performs perfectly on a variety of surfaces, important when you are using it with a laptop.
Very positive left/right button action with two well placed additional thumb buttons, for forward/backward control – excellent for flipping between web pages.
Centre mouse wheel also pushes sideways left/right for moving around windowed screens & self centres.
Tiny wireless receiver plugs into a USB port on your PC & automatically connects the mouse every time you boot up. Works fine even at 10 foot range!. Compared to my old wireless mouse which had me changing the 2 AA batteries every week or so , battery life on this is advertised as 2 years WOW !!
(Linux is Not Windows)
If you’ve been pointed at this page, then the chances are you’re a relatively new Linux user who’s having some problems making the switch from Windows to Linux. This causes many problems for many people, hence this article was written. Many individual issues arise from this single problem, so the page is broken down into multiple problem areas.
Problem #1: Linux isn’t exactly the same as Windows.
You’d be amazed how many people make this complaint. They come to Linux, expecting to find essentially a free, open-source version of Windows. Quite often, this is what they’ve been told to expect by over-zealous Linux users. However, it’s a paradoxical hope.
The specific reasons why people try Linux vary wildly, but the overall reason boils down to one thing: They hope Linux will be better than Windows. Common yardsticks for measuring success are cost, choice, performance, and security. There are many others. But every Windows user who tries Linux, does so because they hope it will be better than what they’ve got.
Therein lies the problem.
It is logically impossible for any thing to be better than any other thing whilst remaining completely identical to it. A perfect copy may be equal, but it can never surpass. So when you gave Linux a try in hopes that it would be better, you were inescapably hoping that it would be different. Too many people ignore this fact, and hold up every difference between the two OSes as a Linux failure.
As a simple example, consider driver upgrades: one typically upgrades a hardware driver on Windows by going to the manufacturer’s website and downloading the new driver; whereas in Linux you upgrade the kernel.
This means that a single Linux download & upgrade will give you the newest drivers available for your machine, whereas in Windows you would have to surf to multiple sites and download all the upgrades individually. It’s a very different process, but it’s certainly not a bad one. But many people complain because it’s not what they’re used to.
Or, as an example you’re more likely to relate to, consider Firefox: One of the biggest open-source success stories. A web browser that took the world by storm. Did it achieve this success by being a perfect imitation of IE, the then-most-popular browser?
No. It was successful because it was better than IE, and it was better because it was different. It had tabbed browsing, live bookmarks, built-in searchbar, PNG support, adblock extensions, and other wonderful things. The “Find” functionality appeared in a toolbar at the bottom and looked for matches as you typed, turning red when you had no match. IE had no tabs, no RSS functionality, searchbars only via third-party extensions, and a find dialogue that required a click on “OK” to start looking and a click on “OK” to clear the “Not found” error message. A clear and inarguable demonstration of an open-source application achieving success by being better, and being better by being different. Had FF been an IE clone, it would have vanished into obscurity. And had Linux been a Windows clone, the same would have happened.
So the solution to problem #1: Remember that where Linux is familiar and the same as what you’re used to, it isn’t new & improved. Welcome the places where things are different, because only here does it have a chance to shine.
People who know me know i would never break the law ,another fantastic reason to “go linux”
34 Percent in the United States are pirates
Back in May, the BSA reported the results of its Global Software Piracy study, which asserted that the commercial value of PC software theft had leapt 14 percent worldwide last year to $59 billion. Now, as a follow-up, the group just recently hired Ipsos Public Affairs to survey some 15,000 PC users in 32 countries for a better understanding of the attitudes and behaviors behind this phenomenon.
Among its findings were that a full 47 percent of computer users globally acquire their software illegally most or all of the time, including 34 percent in the United States, 30 percent in the U.K. and 27 percent in Canada, the group reports.
Recently someone who really ought to know better remarked that Windows© platforms are better than todays modern linux distro’s
Here is 5 reasons he is wrong …..
“Security through obscurity” may be a catchy phrase, but it’s not the only thing that’s catching among Windows users.
The expression is intended to suggest that proprietary software is more secure by virtue of its closed nature. If hackers can’t see the code, then it’s harder for them to create exploits for it–or so the thinking goes.
Unfortunately for Windows users, that’s just not true–as evidenced by the never-ending parade of patches coming out of Redmond. In fact, one of Linux’s many advantages over Windows is that it is more secure–much more. For small businesses and other organizations without a dedicated staff of security experts, that benefit can be particularly critical.
Five key factors underlie Linux’s superior security:
Linux systems are by no means infallible, but one of their key advantages lies in the way account privileges are assigned. In Windows, users are generally given administrator access by default, which means they pretty much have access to everything on the system, even its most crucial parts. So, then, do viruses. It’s like giving terrorists high-level government positions.
With Linux, on the other hand, users do not usually have such “root” privileges; rather, they’re typically given lower-level accounts. What that means is that even if a Linux system is compromised, the virus won’t have the root access it would need to do damage systemwide; more likely, just the user’s local files and programs would be affected. That can make the difference between a minor annoyance and a major catastrophe in any business setting.
