What the heck is this??

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR4K6gnRx4w

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKqwk2sD … re=related

This looks very familiar does it not? He does not even throw a plug in to the site he stole from!!!!! No mention of MIF?! Hope he has permission!!

If not:

ranting will help!

Begin Rant:

This happened to me once. Some scum sucking dog ( pardon me, some unsavory gentleman ) who made a name for himself by putting his own name on other people's work, stole my article on multi precision arithmetic. Didn't even mention me!!!!! He went on to be famous and well respected, while I just went on. Not saying,  just my article made him famous, I guess it was all the articles he stole!

End Rant:

I don't feel better!

Hi bob;

Could be, I hope MIF chimes in here. I especially dislike the way that guy meticulously cut out the tops of those web pages he borrowed.

Re: What the heck is this??

Sorry for digging this up, but are we allowed to do this if we provide credit to MIF?

Re: What the heck is this??

Hi;

I have no idea but I would at least mention the name of the guy whose work I was using.

Could be that he has permission or he is known to MIF. I can track him down because he has over 400 videos on youtube now.

Re: What the heck is this??

But he hasn't posted in over one year? And I was just wondering if I can use some of the site's material for my videos.

I think the general rule is to mention the creator or discoverer of an idea when you use it.

Re: What the heck is this??

Not that I am recommending it but the guy who did it to me has had a very good life and now works for Micro$oft ( wouldn't you know that would happen.)

Re: What the heck is this??

No no; what I mean is simply using some of the features on the website such as the number line, give full credit to MIF and refer people to MIF's site for extra support.
