Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Tom Duff tweeted the following today. I had no idea, but it is exciting/scary/disturbing to think that my software has been running continuously in that application since Bill Clinton was in office, before hanging chads and 9/11 and so many things. 15 years. The sad thing is, Hard Copy Reporter was an abject failure in business terms. Technically, it worked well, but we were far out of our league selling reporting software. Of course, the Midas LSX itself is still selling well, but many, many, many versions have been released since then. Anyway, I just had to share. 
 
Thanks for sharing, Tom.

Every once in a while, I get a reminder about why it is worth spending the time to create your own Closed Captions for a video. My most recent, AutoCheck - Technique to verify LSX installation in database , is just a brief video showing a technique, so I didn't worry about it. But when I happened to check the Automatic captions created, I remembered why I should always take the time. See screenshot below. Ouch.
 
If you are making videos to put on Youtube, you might want to watch my demo on how to fix this, Caption This - Create your own Closed Captions for Youtube. Just a word to the wise.
 
Update: I have now added corrected subtitles. Took a little longer because I forgot that the new 3 second branding video would be counted in the times file, so had to add 3 seconds to all times and re-upload. Duh!
