(My personal foible: I stop and start videos a lot, and hunting with the slider to find out where I left off is a royal pain, so I googled "how to make VLC remember position". Big mistake. VLC doesn't implement this simple feature, but you can get a plugin that does.
I encountered the same problem and VLC does seem to have some kind of built-in bookmark feature, but in my case the "go to bookmark" hotkeys did not work.
Woe is me! This FREE software that I don't pay anything for doesn't fulfill every niche requirement I want! Have you even submitted a bug report for this? Perhaps you could even contribute a fix if said issue irks you so?

For what it's worth:
I work in the power industry. We are upgrading to the very latest version of the application we need to operate our power plants.
It is COBOL throughout.
The vendor is taking away access to the source code soon, as the version that replaces this one will be Java. By Java, they mean all the COBOL code wrapped in Java.
So, a major application for use in the power industry will be COBOL until at least 2030.
Our COBOL devs make nearly six figures. And after our salary review is done, will get some serious raises.
They're all in their late 40s-50s. We have no COBOL people in the pipeline.
Nearly six figures, or nearly seven? I know a place in my current locale that pays about $300,000 to experienced COBOL guys, with a history in the financial market. And let me tell you, you can live like a king around here for even $100,000.
You're assuming he's talking in dollars, whereas in GBP or EUR that's a very decent salary.
