Episode 099 is now available. Looks like I was able to get a screencast out in October after all thanks to Ubuntu Karmic Koala.

Not able to screencast :(

Hey peoples,

It seems that I have broken some packages on my Ubuntu 9.04 system. Not sure if it’s RecordMyDesktop (which I have never had problems with in the past) or a few suspicious encoders that I installed from PPA a few weeks ago. Place your bets. Unfortunately it isn’t something I’m going to tear into an try to fix this close to the release of Ubuntu 9.10. That’s just a couple of weeks around the corner. I plan to format my system for that release since I usually end up installing a bunch of experimental thingies between releases anyway. I like a clean system. 😉

I had episode 098 lined up and screencasted but it encoded so horribly that it’s unwatchable. Syncing issues, dropped frames…nasty. Unfortunately this post serves as an announcement that I won’t have any screencasts this month, at least not by me. So hopefully everything with Ubuntu 9.10 will be alright and I’ll be back in business.

See you then. 🙂
