You'll find me contributing, authoring and hacking on various OSS projects across t'internet :)
These are some of my node.js projects.
Ciaran_j, sorry you didn't get to hear any music. We're using the pre-beta Rdio JS API and it has its moments. Thanks for taking the time to look it over.
I think Rdio is good to go over there. We will be adding features this weekend to http://try.eavesdrop.io so you can check it out then and let us know how it's working. Thanks again.
Thanks, I did actually start to hear some music and went back and edited my comment! :)
Thanks for playing with us! We thought about doing this in Google Hangout to get all the visual cues but we weren't sure we would finish the app in time! We are going to take a stab at the Google Hangout version after judging ends and try to improve joining games (as well as people leaving prematurely).
Yeah, our designers flaked on us so we didn't have time to do the UI as it deserved to be done. That hurts us because good UI would really make what the app does obvious. It's definitely the first thing I'm going to fix once the judging is over. We were down to the wire getting all the mechanics working properly.
Thanks for the vote!
Thanks :) We'll update this soon.
Oh man! I'm sad to read that! the site it's online yet maybe you can change your opinion
Hmm, so its back online, but nothing listed in the top 5 sites, and the page appears to be struggling to serve images?
yeah, we are having problems with the deploy on nodejitsu. But maybe you can take a look to the concept behind the idea. =D
Sorry!, "concept behind the project".
Thanks for the nice words!
@lag: unfortunately, we only tested the jitsu server under good conditions: before everyone else posted their app. We assumed jitsu servers would continue to perform, so we just used the server to inform the client where the paddles and fireball was. When packets drop, that results in poor control and animation. Bad design decision, and will be fixed when contest ends.
Thanks for very detailed feedback. There are lots of issues with the app. For sure we will work hard and release it soon. What you mentioned are real genuine bugs(except twitter one) :):):)
