They are in a video format, but I believe the screen capture is done as one file, then the camera video is combined with it ... and the two are out of sync (very obvious when she is typing, audio of her keyboarding is out of sync from the characters appearing
on the screen). I don't think there is any for us to fix this after the fact, but hopefully we can do better at making these two streams stay in sync during creation.
Something that would be really cool would be launching a C9 screencast in VS and having the code in the video automatically written to your VS text editor. So, your text editor extensibly replaces the one in the video stream...
I think Erik already wrote something like this about a year ago... you should bug him about it
I think Tommy's client was for people without the SQL Management Studio... I can't really see why you'd need it if you had access to SQL Server 2008's client, with intellisense and server connection support built right in.
Just a quick note to let folks know that we feel
the beta is getting very close to ship... there are still a few issues that we know about, and probably many that we don't... so this would be a great time to head over, click around, sign-in, post comments, play videos... etc...
one known issue:
some videos have been accidentally tagged with wiki tags and therefore are showing up at the wrong urls (and not working) ... I believe this is only happening for a few videos in the Silverlight and WPF tags right now, and we're working on fixing it.
I'm sure there are others, but I'm tired and that is the one that I just noticed!
As far as the data is concerned, the wiki is out of date by about 2 weeks, but the rest of the site should only be a few hours behind. The data transfer is a process that I kick off manually though, so that few hours gap will increases while I sleep
by the browser).
That is our preference as well, but we didn't start out with that in mind... which, as you probably know, is less than ideal
We are trying hard to make sure the site works without script for at least browsing... we aren't working on commenting/posting without script at the moment, but we'll probably get to it eventually.
As far as the browser specific problems goes, I don't think we are actually running into that many that are related to browser compatibility issues... and we have very little browser-specific code. The dev team is using FF 2.* and 3.0 beta 5 right now, along
with IE7 and IE8 ... and testing in Opera/Safari and as of a few days ago another Gecko browser K-Meleon ... all without any real issues. We are focusing on doing the CSS/Script correctly the first time, so that it works across all of these browsers without
having to do any hacks.
No idea what happened there... I had actually typed a reply
My intended reply was to ask what browser/os you were using... because changing that check in Silverlight.js may not be enough to make Silverlight work in your browser... I was also curious if you had the ability to spoof your user-agent, and if Silverlight
on the site worked for you in that case?
