No link up yet. You may find it is better in the future to just post the video. It's the best way to ensure there is no awkward copyright violation situations for you or DN.

Guido, I thought is was an old video so I gave him the benefit of the doubt, I looked again and I see it was uploaded in 2018, it doesn't say when it was made though. I agree with what you stated. I just didn't feel like taking the time to point out all the misleading/confusing stuff contained, I just wanted to get the one glaring mistake corrected.
