A new award I came up with for video tech help. I'm not sure they have the category at the Oscars or Sundance Film Festival.

But it is really the best YouTube-type tech help I've ever seen and some of them really try at it.

I tried to rep you but can't rep this for some reason.

Strange, it appears to just be an issue with giving rep to this one. I gave one to the tutorial below, and it worked just fine.

OneNote - Copy Text from Image

You can see the REP listed at the bottom of WHS's profile page.

It's because the tutorial is older than 30 days for why it cannot be given rep to anymore.
