One rewarding thing about working hard to keep customers happy is that those same happy customers often return the favor by mentioning your product to others.  This is invaluable for our business, as Genii Software doesn't do any paid advertising, so all business is either generated by helping people on forums, by speaking at conferences, and by personal recommendation, but mostly the latter.  It is particularly nice when the recommendation or mention comes in a public forum or weblog.  Here are just a few recent quotes:

ND 6 Gold Forum
"You could try to look at a tool called Midas from Geniisoft." 
     - Robert Ibsen Voith, Voith's CODE, Nov. 12, 2004

" The second option would involve using the MIDAS RichText LSX to compare the differences." 
     - Bill Ernest, Teamwork Solutions Inc., Nov. 8, 2004 

"That not only is a cool tool but also saved me *a lot* of time and headaches! Keep up the GREAT work!" 
     - Florian TA VOGLER, ICODEX Software AG, Nov. 1, 2004

"Congrats Ben, as always... an amazing product" 
     - Alan Lepofsky, IBM,  Nov. 1, 2004 

ND 4 & 5 Gold Forum
"The only way I know of to dynamically resize an image is to use the MidasLSX toolkit by GeniiSoft (Thanks Ben, it saved my job!)." 
     - John C. Palmer, JP Associates, Nov. 19, 2004

"You can probably use Notes API to reset hide-when in richtext items. Check also if MidasLSX has some hide-when features." 
     - Andrei Kouvchinnikov , Nov. 11, 2004

"One way to get your desired result is to build one document with formatted text in a RTF which lloks like a view -- but the categories wouldn't be expandable unless you used Ben's Midas Rich Text LSX"  
     - Bruce Stapley, Sep. 24, 2004

"You can do it for example using Midas Richtext LSX for LotusScript. It's a very useful tool."  
     - Andrei Kouvchinnikov, IBM,  Sep. 24, 2004 

On-Line Journals
"There's not an easy, built-in way to do this. There is no rich text class or method to handle imported images -- only attached images. 
You can use third-party tools to do this, such as Midas rich text API from Geniisoft."   
     - Andre Guirard, IBM, SearchDomino.com,  Oct. 28, 2004

"Genii Software's Midas LSX exposes this so it can be done easily." 
     - Brian Mahoney, SearchDomino.com, Aug. 27, 2004

"There is a very good product that makes much of the RichText functionality available from LotusScript; it is Genii Software's Midas RichText LSX."  
     - Brian Mahoney, SearchDomino.com, May 3, 2004

"The foreground Import command is the only way I know of to get a picture included in Rich Text "from scratch" without writing C or C++ Notes API code (or using a third-party tool such as Midas)." 
     - Andre Guirard, IBM, SearchDomino.com,  Apr. 23, 2004 

Weblogs
"I think Ben has a solution with Coex links...{link}" 
     - Neil, NotesTips.com, May 12, 2004

"Or would this require me to use something like MidasLSX to generate HTML from the RTF first, then email that?"  
     - Andy M., CodeStore.net, Jan. 19, 2004

"I have been using my friend Ben's incredible tool, the Midas Rich Text LSX, to create a kick-ass app for a client of mine." 
     - Rocky Oliver, LotusGeek.com, Nov. 11, 2003

"Yes, richtext to html conversion in notes is crap. That's what Midas is for :)"  
     - John Head, NotesTips.com, Mar. 11, 2003
