and used by many podcasters. This is a verifiable statement.
From an outside perspective, they do seem to be successful _at what
they do_, which is different from the service you claim to offer.
They're not claiming to do online recording for podcast distribution;
they're doing it for embedded audio comments on Web sites. They've
completely delivered on that claim. You have yet to completely
deliver on the necessary features to make your service useful for

simply to provide the name of the service he'd forgotten about. I
said nothing about yours in that post.
I haven't compared them to you until _this_ post, and that's because
you seem intent on pushing the question. But if you're going to push
it: yeah. I think they _are_ doing a better job than you, but that's
primarily because they have a _finished product_ that delivers all the
features necessary for its stated purpose. You do not. That's
something you could change, if you'd quit talking and get back to
design and coding before you ask why nobody's using it.

- Hey, waitaminute.
First of all, you were presenting your basic recording-via-a-JAVA-script
website as a tool for creating podcasts. MyChingo is -not- for creating
podcasts, if I recall it correctly -- I stumbled across whatever-I-found
back before they actually offered anything, years ago -- it was a
mechanism for creating voice comments on a blogsite or podcast site.
You had decided you were a place to record podcasts. Different process.
And I'd imagine Google works at your house, just as it works as mine, and
you could have found MyChingo the same way I did, or Steve did. And all
the other hopefuls who are creating stuff on the web and hope people will
What Steve did was respond to MY post trying to recall the service I
stumbled across -- doing web searches -- years back. I thank Steve for
making the effort, though I'm not sure that's the one I recall.
So, Steve should apologize to you for how he replied to my post? I don't
think so, and I'll say that in front of God, and everybody I know in 20
So, back-the-f***-up. Now that we've settled that Steve didn't respond to
-my- post to offend -you-, What was your question (he said, menacing and
Seriously, though, you have the beginnings of a tool to do something, and
I'm still not sure what. Voice commenting is one of the possibilities I
can forsee, and if I'm not mistaken, I was the person who said that might
be a good option for you to pursue. (and I'm still sure there's more
So, if when I suggest an idea, your response is to use it to justify an
attack on a friend of mine, why am I still listening? Why is anybody here
So... Given that you've thought better of your previous post (as I would
have), how can I help?
