Emacs Chat: Oh no, my chat with Bodil Stokke didn’t get recorded!

Camtasia said it was recording the whole thing, and then when I went to edit it, I found that I only had the first 9 minutes. Extracting the .camrec didn’t get me any additional data. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo! That’s what I get for doing an interview without two recording systems. Normally I use Google Hangout On Air’s built-in recording and Camtasia Studio as a backup, but since I was using appear.in, I only had Camtasia Studio running.

And it was a cool demo/discussion of Flycheck with Haskell (including better ways to do things), Tern, js2-mode, smartparens, tagedit, the XWidgets branch and running Reveal.js presentations inside Emacs, styling tips (Powerline, Nyancat, font-locking), the Emacs Lisp Reference…

We might be able to reschedule after I crawl out from under a rock and also hammer a solid backup screen recording strategy in place, although Bodil mentioned she’s open to using Google Hangout on Air even though it uses some proprietary plugins.

In the meantime:



Argh. Bodil, I’m so sorry!

    Oh noes! I was really looking forward to this chat. I think Bodil is a very interesting person and was looking forward to seeing your chat with her. I hope you can reschedule.

    In the meantime, don’t worry about the snafus. As you know, stuff happens with tech and always in the most inconvenient way.

  • Hi Sacha – I’m so sorry Camtasia let you down. Can I connect you with our support staff so they can take a look at what’s going on with your machine and see if there’s a fix? https://support.techsmith.com/anonymous_requests/new We want Camtasia to be 100% reliable!
