    Thanks for the video tutorial. I'd also be interested in a post on what application you used to create that video.

    Thanks for the info. This saves me having to use multiple SSH's over a network. Brilliant!

    @Justin - I use <a href="http://fosswire.com/2008/03/17/video-screen-capture-in-linux-with-recordmydesktop/" rel="nofollow">RecordMyDesktop</a> for capture and various tools to stitch things together (Avidemux) and export out (Mencoder, ffmpeg, ffmpeg2theora) to the required formats for the site.

    I'll definitely have a think about putting a post together about my video workflow in more detail (including how it is encoded for FLV) if there is interest, but as I'm on holiday in a couple of days time, it might be a while before it sees the light of day!

    Nice tutorial, thanks! I think this tutorial http://www.devhands.com/2008/08/gnu-screen-custom-theme-for-white-background/ for configuring screen look and feel also might be interesting.
