1 computer acting as a “backup server” of our entire small computer park (Intel Dual Core at 2.8 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, 2×1 TB disk space) under Ubuntu 10.10, all automatically using Time Machine for Macs and Backup Utility for PCs (XP and W7):
Two additional computers (one XP and one 32-bit W7) are used for testing for some software at the level of compatibility essentially.
- To make the so-called classic tutorials (text+image), of course we use the administration WordPress, Overview for screenshots under MacOS X, Capture tool Windows 7 Fireworks CS5 for image editing and web-optimised export, FileZilla/Cyberduck for uploading files to the server by FTP.
- For video tutorials, the capture is carried out with Screenflow under MacOS X, and Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture Windows 7. The voices are captured with the microphone of the iSight camera. The video editing is then done with the help ofiMovie 11.
- To modify the graphic theme, plugins and other files of CMS WordPress, we use CODA from Panic on MacOS X.
- A classic tutorial is usually written in 1H.For more important articles such as theme lists, from 1H to 6 H.
- A video tutorial is made in 2H to 4 H (capture, editing, writing the article, uploading to YouTube...).
