    Sequence 1.0

    When something unusual or interesting appears on your screen, there are times you may want to show the image to someone else. If that person is physically nearby, they can, of course, peek at your screen. In many cases though the other person may be in another city, state or country, so that isn't an option. The only choice then is to do the next best thing, and capture that screen image using a program like Sequence 1.0.
