Default Solving videos

Hi folks -

I get at least 1-2 complaints a week asking why we allow "obvious cheaters" like bansai and others to keep their "impossible" solve times of 8, 10, 12 seconds on various cryptograms... and frankly, I'm getting a little tired of explaining the same thing to people again, and again and again. So I thought maybe it would be fun for some of the faster solvers on the site to try screencasting themselves in order to record a video of an amazingly fast solve time.

I tried it myself just now and after a few tries was able to come in with an 18 second solve time - not my best, but still pretty decent I thought!

(I used free software to capture this called Cam Studio - http://camstudio.org/)

If anyone is up for the challenge, please go ahead and post your video to youtube and post its url here... if we can get enough of them I'll put together a special page on the site where the best ones will be featured.

Thanks!

Stephen
