  • Humanscale are the other brand if you've got more money to spend.

    Still blissfully happy with my Flexispot though.

  • Does anyone have any recommendations of screen recording software, ideally free, have been tasked to record how a product works. Is captive still a thing?

  • We have just had to do something similar and have used Loom, seems to be OK.

  • I recently made some short videos using OBS Studio for screen capture and voice. I found it easy to use once I'd read the quick start guide.

    It was pointed out to me afterwards that I could have used MS Teams which I already had, by doing a solo meeting and recording that. Oh well.

    I also tried Loom but preferred OBS.

  • Thanks, good shout on using Teams

  • Mac or PC?

    If you're on Mac, the built in Screen Recorder in Quicktime Player works well

  • I've been using OBS for recordings. If you're on a PC Windows Game Bar(?) has a recording feature built in too, just hit Win+g to open it up. Worked well until my computer started playing up and I was too lazy to fix it.

  • If anyone close enough to SW15 wants an Ikea desk then it's going free (well, forum donation) now:-­20/

    I used this as my WFH desk for years until I upgraded to a Flexispot.

    It's taking up too much space, isn't selling, so I just want to get rid. I've tried to donate it to various charities and they don't seem to be interested. If it still hasn't gone in a week then it goes to the furniture section at the local tip.

  • This just happened, luckily after a team meeting, and now the back of this IKEA Snille chair is much springier than it should be. Date code moulded into the plastic says October 2008, so not a bad innings.
