Rylstim (Windows) - An easy to use, simple screen recorder

The concept itself just about screams, I'm so darn useful!, but the reality, I've found, tends to be far too complicated and buggy. Until now. The concept is, recording what you're doing on your computer screen so that you can share it with others. If someone isn't following what I'm trying to explain over the phone as I try to help with a computer problem, showing them can make everything clear. You can do that by sharing what you're doing as you do it. That's called screen sharing, but what happens if you can't get both of you sitting down at your machines at the same time, or if you want people to be able to refer to something over and over?

That's where screen recording can be awesome. But my experience has been that the software is so big and buggy and hard to use that it makes more sense just to try explaining things on the phone (as frustrating for both people as it can be). Now comes this super-simple application that takes just a couple of clicks to record straightforward screencasts. See an example below (the real video that you'd share is a lot more readable than this one since Blogger has reduced the resolution considerably to save hosting space).
