Great post! Going through a period of depression after a failed startup. It's just want i needed for the extra boost!

This article hit home as someone in a similar position, as a student. Always a good kick in the rear. Thanks.

Great post, would love to see more people talk about their success with side projects an apps like this.

Great post. You repeated your success which is when you really know you've got the hang of it.

The part about working a day job and trying to build something is so true. Things move so slow when you're splitting your time like that. Very inspiring.

I remember there already being an app for ventrilo, so I just went off to find it and it turns out they had to pull it: http://www.ventafone.com/

Is yours not similar?

The reason they got pulled was because they used a GPL lib in their app. (GPL does not comply with the app store terms)

I love to fail, fortunately :)

The link doesn't work ?!!

cache:http://demeulenaer.com/?p=99 should do it

Server went down because of the load, trying to get it up back asap!
