Shift-Option modifier for fine brightness control

This exact same hint shows up on OSX Daily (http://osxdaily.com/2012/06/09/incremental-brightness-volume-adjustments-in-mac-os-x/) on June 9, a whole two days later ... here it is on OSX Hints.

This site has really gone down hill.

And how has it gone downhill?

If you're interested, I spotted the comment to the previous hint about the volume control, then put the post in the queue for Monday, June 11. Someone else submitted it to OS X Daily before it got posted here.

So you're saying that I copied them? Or they copied this site? Does it really matter that much?

@ "Does it really matter that much?"

No!!

I'm interested in the hints...not who posted first, nor where. I don't have time to read the multitude of Apple-related web sites looking for handy little items like this but I do depend on Mac OS X Hints to find 'em and post 'em.

Criticism wasn't justified, IMO.

I am interested in the hints, but not the criticisms nor those that point out flaws. Contribute or observe.
I Agree with Kirkmc: who cares about "me first"!
Having a credible hint or solution matters.
Thanks for the Hint- It works on 10.7.4 on a MBP 15" 2009...both Brightness and Volume can use the granular setting...
