Cheap (as in free) desktop video capture


If you're anything like me you've found the need to capture your desktop activities more than once and the options out there tend to either be prohibitively expensive or woefully inadequate.  Being an IT guy AND an avid gamer I've been on both sides of the fence when it comes to trying to grab video from my desktop.

It's the whole desktop thing that's been a stumbling block.  That was until I figured out how to make a free video capture app, MSI Afterburner, grab my desktop and not just my game footage.

MSI Afterburner isn't just a video capture app, it's a unified suite of apps that include video card monitoring, tweaking and logging.  

Of course its video capture capabilities are geared toward gaming but a little digging found a simple solution to leverage the considerable muscle of Afterburner's video capture capabilities.  

Check out the video below to see the secret I've unlocked....

Windows 10 on ESX with all the uglies...




I've just completed the first in what I hope to be a short series of videos in the vein of the Windows 8 videos I did a few years ago.  This one is about installing and configuring Windows 10 on an ESX 5.5 virtual host.

Come along and see what it's like with all the uglies left in!  I don't know about you but I hate tutorials that never tell me what to do when something bad happens!

Without further adieu I give you Windows 10 on ESX!
