DVD Spanner for Mac

[ #33604 ]

I finally put together a web site for my DVD Spanner application. Download it and use it and let me know if it works well for you.

I have a few updates planned, but so far it has worked really well for me backing up my photographs.

Planned changes:

- Not copying the files to create the archives - this is possible using the Mac internal APIs, so it's just a matter of figuring out how to do this without blocking the GUI thread. The current version does a link() if it's on the same filesystem, otherwise it has to do a copy(), which is slow.
- Allow the user to choose different device sizes (e.g. CDs or DVD-DL)
- Way better error handling. But this will require me to create a whole bunch more coasters :-(
