You really can't be anymore ill-equipped than I am, give it a go, I doubt anybody will mock you for it.

Mocking someone is not in the spirit of these forums.
Any contribution, as small as it could be is greatly appreciated.

Here's the process that I used to create my cast, maybe this can help others:
  • Create a new "hacking theme" for my wm, my terminal, wallpaper, etc..
  • Get a paper and pen
  • Write down the scenario I want to reproduce
  • Write what needs to be set on the machine or faked
  • Set the machine(s) up
  • Record until satisfied
  • Remember that others are going to watch it, the font should be readable, what you do should be comprehensible, and don't use multiple screens, videos are watched in a small size

Haha, I'll try. Maybe I'll watch some of my old favorites from the 90s to get inspiration.

I should have been more specific. I tried to do the light desktop contest, but by the time I got home from a week long trip to another state, I only had around 4hrs or so, in my defense, I actually did try to put something together for 3hrs. I failed. Miserably. Off the top of my head I couldn't come up with anything I would actually use that didn't blind me.

Edit: @venam, And I will remember that every time I am hesitent to comment/post/participate, etc.

Don't forget this compo everyone.
There are still 3 days left to submit your work.
z3bra
Tomorrow is the last day, and up to this day, only venam submitted a video. Hurry up!
Adrift
EDIT: I have sent it off to z3bra.

Spoiler alert there are many easter eggs.

I've been busy these weeks, I got some free time today to record the video. Where should I submit it?

Send a pm to z3bra with the link or buzz him on irc.
Adrift
EDIT: link removed.

I hope this was included? I think it's meant for this contest.

@adrift, I asked no to give links to the videos on the forum. Especially when it's not your own
