Was trying earlier today to create a screencast for Windows 10 Technical Preview and had some success with it and some failures.
The biggest failure was I only got about 40% of the screen so I threw away the screencast and will try again tomorrow. When I can get something half way decent then I’ll post it to YouTube and paste a link to it over here.
Each try takes about 45 minutes and it doesn’t take many of them to chew up the clock.
The one thing that I did notice and it pains me to say this but VMware was much better at handling it then VirtualBox was.
Then since it was getting late I thought I better throw some stuff at the blog and see what sticks to the wall when I couldn’t get logged into Google.
Said something about suspicious account activity. So then I had to call a number and get some code and then enter the code into the box.
Have no clue what someone was trying to do or how far they got but my passwords for Google is well in excess of 50 characters so good luck with that one. And my password reset code is generated by some random character generator that you would use for generating random passwords so even I have no clue what it is. If you think you can just look up some data on the Internet and plug it in for my password reset good luck with that one.
So after I got logged onto Google again I tried the mirror site for the blog. Seems that Google’s automated whatever has decided on it’s own that the blog is spam and has marked it as such.
I had the option to have a human review the findings and in three to five days I’ll see if I can continue on with Blogger or if I have to use yet another online service to mirror the blog too.
Like Twitter Google seems to presume you guilty until proven innocent and then we’ll get back to you and in the meantime you’re offline. Tough Cookies.
The other thing is that Google + is still up and running however I send stuff from the regular blog to Blogger first and then Blogger pushes it over to Google +. So without Blogger there is no way to get it to Google +. Actually there is but I’m not paying $50 just to go direct.
So tomorrow or the next few days I’ll work on the screencast, wait to hear what Google says, and work on the next part of the Network Tutorial. All while still posting stuff to the blog. Where does the time go?
