Screencasts

Surely soon-to-be-outdated steps to take before recording a screencast (or presenting using a computer):
  1. clear all browser caches
  2. clear all saved form data
    • saves potential embarassment
    • also hides the fact that I've done a run-through already
  3. clear all browser history? Sometimes might be useful.
    • reason to clear history: links appear as not visited
  4. turn off all unnecessary browser extensions
    • people will ask you what those icons are
    • people will try to figure out how you work
  5. turn off all apps that notify via Growl and whatnot
    • even better: turn off Growl
  6. close all unnecessary applications
  7. pre-load all necessary websites in tabs or windows
Maybe this should fit under the "Perfect" section.
