Youtube is banned from the Internet here, so I can do things like read comments on videos, but I can't actually watch any. That's kind of unfortunate because I have about 500 videos that I should probably keep track of every once in a while.
I suppose Youtube is banned because they don't want people wasting time on it, and because a lot of videos on Youtube are inappropriate. I suppose it's good that they're trying to look out for us here, but to be quite honest, I wouldn't watch the inappropriate videos even if I had access to them.
When I say "inappropriate videos", I'm thinking of some videos where people say mean things and swear the whole time in an attempt to be funny. I don't enjoy that kind of video. I'm sorry, but if you feel you need to a jerk in order to be funny...well, you're not really all that funny.
Anyway, here's a nice email I got the other day, and I thought I'd share it with you guys.
I had to write a thank you to Michael Gray for all the time and energy he puts into the walkthroughs for Nancy Drew. At 63 I tried my first pc game (Castle Malloy) and the help made it a fun rather than a frustrating adventure. The videos on you tube were an absolute riot. It was great to hear a pro get frustrated at times since at the junior level I was having some problems and just getting a headache.
The humor and thorough approach to the walkthrough was just great.
Thank you Michael for making an old lady happy! :)
I don't get paid to make Youtube videos, so it's nice feedback like that which is the true reward I get. So I'd like to thank her and all the people who I've helped for making my life so rewarding.
