Shenanigans! No detail about the project, screen shots, etc.. just search engine blog posts.

I hear that robot voice and immediately think some spammy is happening..

Again - why wouldn't you be crowing about your project? Sure it's in F#, but is it?

Without some basic info I guess it's not just for me. I'll pass on looking at it. Good luck.

If it's not open source, why should anyone care what it's written in?

This is not a programming project but lame attempt at get someone, anyone, to care about some toy some anonymous person wrote.

Sorry. What does "crowing" mean?

It's not a toy. It's a very useful tool for internet search.

Crowing - boast, brag, to show off

So are, literally, thousands of other programs. From your website, it's unclear how this is useful. I shouldn't need to watch a video to figure this out.

Again, if it's not open source, why does it matter what language you used?

I liked the warning that it would take some time to load because: F#. It's a poor craftsman who blames his tools. F# itself doesn't have a ton of overhead. However, poorly written F# can accidentally run code on loading that should have been run upon request. I will not, nor will any average user, blame this language used for sub par performance.

If you didn't see the video you know nothing about this application. Sorry. Nothing to discuss.

If you have written a very useful tool one would think that you would be excited to introduce it and describe it to people. "My tool is similar to this (excuse the phrase) but it's better because; it does this, which is fab!" Would you nonchalantly click links and videos without some idea of where you are heading?
