iDVD and the Spinning Pizza of Death

Just because an app looks like it’s wedged doesn’t mean it is. Halfway through a very lengthy video conversion, it looked like iDVD had gotten stuck with the beachball cursor. Tim Foster investigated — using some serious nerd-fu — and realized it wasn’t actually stuck, so he let it continue, and eventually it did finish. (Via John Siracusa.)
