Mac OS X Late last night (CET), we reported on the story that the VLC project needed more developers for the Mac version of this popular video player, or else the Mac variant may disappear. Just about every website out there reported on this issue, but it turns out it all got a bit exaggerated (on the internet? Surely you jest...). We spoke to VLC developer Pierre d'Herbemont to clarify the issue, and they've also put up a wiki page about the so-called demise of the Mac version of VLC. He also detailed what, exactly, they meant by "Apple is blocking us".

Odd, I get a few e-mails a week from people who are blown away by my code.

Perhaps then I’m a developer who has standards higher than the average.

"The Internet is full of generic code that solves generic problems, generically."

I think you’ll find that the truism is that _most_ code is crap. Not the other way around.
