Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I was chatting with Bill Buchan today, and as I looked up a fact related to his tweet, I realized that our Midas Rich Text LSX Version 1.00 was published Aug. 6, 1997, which is only 37 days after J.K. Rowling published Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (renamed for U.S. audiences as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone).

The only possible connection I can find between the two, besides the fact that selling Midas worldwide has sometimes felt like a magical journey, is that both franchises are going strong almost 14 years later.

See, I told you it was utterly useless trivia.
