Short seems to be the best word I have for it. Your text over the window is hard to read and generally isn't on the screen long enough to read it. If you have the original video still, I'd recommend added some black space to the bottom and putting subtitles there. Pause the video on the text a little longer.

Well I used windows movie maker.
- I tried the "subtitle" text overlay, but the text looks bad with anything other than white since it adds black fuzz around it, and you can't change the color of the fuzz. The only other type of text overlay that seemed to look good was "basic".
- Pausing the video is hard and fiddly, it involves splitting the video up, taking screenshots and inserting those like slide show frames.
Yes it could be better, but since it's a video I figure people can watch the parts that are too fast several times over, pausing it if necessary. I suppose I should redo it like you said, infact if I add a black bar at the bottom with virtualdub somehow that would change the aspect ratio, and if I'm correct that means youtube will store the video at a higher quality/res. I would like to be able to do that "zoom in" thing at specific places so people can see where I'm actually typing/clicking.

Taking 6 or so screen shots and just writing text under them in a webpage (such as the wiki?) would be just as useful as the video.
