Playing with Jing
Jing is a rather lovely tool from Techsmith, the same people that make the Camtasia screencasting software. It allows you to do screen capture either static images (which you can annotate) or short video clips. The basic version of Jing is free and you have to sign up for a screencast.com account where you can upload your captures to share with others. Jing can also be configured to upload to your own ftp server...this is what I've done here. I can make a screen capture with Jing which automatically uploads to my College webspace and provides me with a link which I can email to people or put on a page like this!
It's kind of neat and fun...might be too easy to fill up my webspace with rubbish!
