Comment on Black Ink

For the record, I'm someone who marked "bruce" as a troll. If he isn't the author of the vitriol that is rixstep.com he should apply to be an understudy. He's got everything it takes.

Mr. Jalkut seems a fine developer who is constantly trying to improve upon what he has, and he provides excellent support. What more can we ask for as consumers? Sure, I could complain that CS3 doesn't come with a discount off my weekly grocery shopping but, realistically, the price is the price (and I don't think it's too much) and I wish people would either pay the money or walk away...

That said, I feel it's only fair to point out I haven't purchased Black Ink (my opinion of Mr. Jalkut comes from my dealings with him over MarsEdit). And, no, it's not because he's the devil in disguise (it's true, he is, I read it on http://rixstep.com), nor is it because the software is overpriced that I haven't purchased Black Ink. It's simply because I prefer cryptic crosswords. Which, for the record, I pay about $40 for. Per year.

If you like this program, I say buy it. If you don't like it, or you don't think it's worth the money... be happy you had the opportunity to try something else, rather than bitter that it wasn't everything you dreamt it would be [for the money].

PS. Frak me it's a good splash screen, though. Worth at least $15.
