It is very easy to comment from the sidelines.. but here I go:

The presentation seemed disjointed, as if you were just saying what came to mind. I did not sense a framework that you had a point to point progression of topics that lead to a comprehensive whole. Introduce, Present, Summarize. There is a clutter of buttons and icons that are not necessary to what you are saying. The desktop image is cool, but a neutral one would be more effective.

All of of pendrives come with encryption utilities out of the box such as U3 from SanDisk. You usually have a hidden folder which only appears after you have entered the password. This utility come preloaded as an exe on the pendrive. Unfortunately these are usually windows only. You may find 3rd party utilities more useful.

If memory serves me, I think you can get true crypt portable which will encrypt your files for you. I did read an article not to long back and I'm sure it mentioned encrypting a whole pen drive.

Really good video, Dai! I like the idea of having a pen drive with me all the time so that I can access all of my files wherever I need them (@home, @school).

Is it possible to encrypt the entire pen drive (including the menu system) so that my personal files aren't available to anyone in case the pen drive gets stolen?

Keep up the good work!

Hi Dai, nice video. Again - this is another video about a totally new topic for me, grand stuff! The portable apps link ( has everything the viewer needs.

These links will also help for Audacity mp3 editing (, window sizing and manipulation with dm2 ( and video editing with VirtualDub (

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
