...and a happy birthday to my sweetheart.
This blurb is surprisingly shallow and shortsighted given the time spent by various people
talking to the author. Maybe it was his editor's fault. At any rate, I'll take credit for coining
the phrase "fake-time" and point out that it's a feature, not a criticism. And that NINJAM has more
than a slight delay, but a huge delay--presumably, the other software/service/vaporware mentioned
has a "slight delay". Nevermind the other huge differences-- NINJAM working with actual audio
streams, free software (as in speech), etc. I know it's just a blurb, but hopefully people will
investigate to see the truth.
The other thing that bugged me was the use of "critics". Personally I haven't heard anybody be
too critical of NINJAM (i.e. haven't gotten any negative feedback, just positive and suggestions).
At least, nobody who's actually used it. Some people who haven't yet will say "oh that sounds
like it would be terrible", but everybody who has used it seems to enjoy it tremendously.
It's really a hugely addictive and fun form of entertainment.
Anyway... off to drink and eat a lot this week. woohoo.
