MiniMinty is finished! But...

Not by Ladyada?
www.mini-minty.com
Isn't this a direct knock-off? They do give her credit for designing the MintyMP3, but some of this sounds oddly familiar... Unless this is her? Wouldn't it be here then?

And some other things... But anyway, just wondering if this is ladyada, or someone totally unrelated... Anyway... yeah.

Looks like it isn't Ladyada's work, but it was designed to be a "successor to MintyMP3".
