I broke down and bought iShowU because of great reviews. However, due to what the author claims is a Quicktime Bug, the application quit after I had spent OVER AN HOUR recording video. The whole point of getting iShowU was to do painless training sessions when I had time (like in the evening) and then distribute them. But instead of saving time, I just wasted MY WHOLE FREAKIN NIGHT!

It's not that the file is gone - I have all 114MB. However, according to the author of the software, it is UNUSABLE. AHH!

I'm about to smack my head against several walls. I had finally gotten to what I thought was a manageable amount of work, and then I get whacked by this application, and now I'm way behind, yet again, and lost my whole evening (I had spent over an hour preparing for the screencast, and had stopped half way through my first take to do it better, too).

That's $20 and a whole evening I will never see again.
