well, as long as you can understand me, I guess it's ok.

The tinyurl is the direct link to the file on archive.org, but seeing as
I kinda messed up the archive.org one, as in you can't get to the file,
I'm going to put another one up. This time with some tips from Alan Pope
about formats and such.

Thanks, it's a first attempt and I'm quite proud of it :-P
I'm going to try and do kubuntu version of the ones Alan's done, so both
kde and gnome users can get the same information. Then maybe we can
collaborate on which ones we should do to stay in sync.
It could be a good idea to get a team of people working on these
screencasts as we can roll them out quicker without loosing any of the
quality. Just something to think about/discuss.

I'm happy you liked it, and happier you learned something. I'll start
working on more, like IRC in Konversation (as a partner to the X-Chat
one) and Kopete (to the gaim one).

(Off making more screencasts.)
