Don Box: the lost minutes


Did you see Don’s earlier Channel 9 tour of the halls of Indigo?  Did you get a feeling that there had to be more?  Did you feel like 19 minutes of tape was strategically deleted by “the man” in order to avoid the perception of ill-will and misfortune that may have arisen had the developer of CoMarshalInterThreadInterfaceInStream stood up and said, “I created CoMarshalInterThreadInterfaceInStream and I’m proud of it!”

The beauties of a 37 character (7 of them Caps) function-name aside, here are the lost minutes (actually I don’t believe there is any mention of CoMarshalInterThreadInterfaceInStream in this tour…or was there?)

    Not sure if too many APIs can beat Apple’s CoreFoundation with gems such as:

    CFURLCreateStringByReplacingPercentEscapesUsingEncoding
