Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
This thread  gave me the idea of creating a forum just for programming outside of the iPhone SDK. As Jeff points out, since the language of Objective-C is a super-set of C, it's helpful to have a background in C. Maybe we can provide a forum to be that resource. We could discuss general Mac development, C/C++, Java, Python, and others. What does everyone think?
