I liked it very much. Very didactic and certainly convincing video. I hear about thread checker some time ago and I've never have time to check it out. But now I know it's a very useful tool that I will certainly use soon. The only small suggestion is that you can probably save a bit of video time by having the .html files preopened in different firefox tabs.

Thank you for the feedback - I appreciate it. Your suggestion regarding having an open firefox tab is an excellent idea - it'd save valuable time.

Intel Thread Checker, I personally think, is a real fine tool - an essential one since it identifies correctness issues (as Anton, one of my fine colleagues, would say "it identifies both actual issues as well as potential issues").

best regards

The whole thing is clear, informative and gives a good idea of what one can expect from thread checker. I would have spend a little more time talking about the information level -- why are they there? Do they need fixing? ... -- but otherewise, it is good.

Thank you for the feedback - your point is quite valid. Your feedback suggests that it may be helpful to have an article on

* what the various kinds of diagnostics mean and what to do with them.

* a sampler of various actual diagnostics and suggested course of action for the diagnostics
