TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I started using it today as well. Oddly enough, about ten minutes before seeing your post, my copy issued a "Parameter is incorrect" error. The error did go away quickly and hasn't yet returned, but thought I'd share.
I've never found any product that compares to SnagIt. My vote is to report the errors and TechSmith will likely issue a patch shortly if they can isolate the issue.
Cheers... Rick :)
