Maybe lack of sleep is causing me to have a shorter-than-average Adbusting
fuse today, but Martha asked about the capabilities of the tools she was
already using. Everybody said "Download SnagIt!" (which also happens to buy
a lot of ad space on TechWr-L; maybe now they can afford to cut down their
ad expenditure here?)

The fact is that a lot of tech writers, myself included, do NOT spend many
mindless hours taking pictures of the screen and manipulating the images.
And if you don't need a tool, you're not likely to buy it...Then again, a
lot of people who DO need a tool and STILL don't pay for it. Whether or not
it has saved them time and money on a logarithmic scale does not seem to
matter. They may not intend to steal, but stealing software is looked on
rather casually in a lot of businesses I know, plus jumping through hoops to
get a purchase approved, even for a measly $50, can be a deterrent for a
tool that you use for 30 seconds every two weeks.

I ask questions often enough on this darn list that I should be able to
contribute what little I know without getting shamed for it.
