Journal closure

Posted by , 24 June 2007 - - - - - - · 285 views

I know I had said I'd "clolose" my journal when mithrandir gets laid... well, he's still a virgin, but I have to close my journal now.

I don't think anyone would really miss it because I didn't really post anything development related anyway. I'll probably make myself a blog elsewhere.

So I just canceled my GDNet+ membership, and while doing so convinced mithrandir to cancel his as well. It's really not worth getting it.
Back then, there were people running gamedev whom I liked and I wanted to support. Now, unfortunately, they're all gone and the site is being operated by a... different style of people.
I figured if I wanted to support some mentally delayed people, I'd be much better off donating to charity instead of giving money here.

Anyway, I still have a few more months of my subscription (paid for a whole year), so it's not like I'm completely "gone".

Also, what the hell is this with paypal not having a section for listing your subscriptions? I had to go through the history for a while trying to find the payment to gamedev, just to get a link to the subscription plan.

Oh, here is one last gift for you guys:

Unlike thor, I prefer girls.

Good news everyone!

So.. today I have my M.Sc. defense. Went on for 2.5 hours, I was so exhausted by the end of it.
Good news: I passed my defense. Now I just have to submit the final revision of my thesis (after all the suggestions that my defense committee has given me) and I'll have a brand spanking new M.Sc. degree :D

I've also made my request to transfer to the Ph.D. program, we'll see how that goes fairly soon.

Woa, an update?

I've been very inactive lately...

I'm almost done with my masters thesis. I'll post a copy here when I'm done with my defense so you guys would be able to see it, too.
Right now, a few people have a draft of my thesis, basically reviewing it for me and finding mistakes and such.

Other than that, I'm almost done converting my engine to use Xna instead of the Tao solution (OpenGl/glfw/OpanAl bundle). The reason is because the only part of Tao that worked well was the OpenGL part; as the other components really, really suck.

Oh, did I mention the new engine is coded entirely in F#? :)

My goal is to have as much of the engine working to remake TTT in F# + Xna. I'm maybe about half way there now.
You'll see the new TTT when I'm done, but it'll most likely take another month since I have to prepare my thesis and defense.

Sorry for lack of updates.
Been really busy with me thesis. I'll actually post my final draft of thesis here before going to my defense, although probably none of you guys would read it anyway.

On a side note, I made this just to piss off mith: Bob the Blob in javascript/dhtml.

Teh House

You know the house that I bought? I looked into its history, and the woman owner originally bought the house for $2

... from her father.

I guess that's a smart way of transferring the ownership of the house and avoiding taxes.

Internet holiday

Posted by , 02 March 2007 - - - - - - · 161 views

It looks like today is an internet holiday.
There's no one on MSN, and the couple of people on googletalk are all idle. I logged into the non-existent place and there was only 1 other person in there, who was also wondering why is there no one else on the Internet.

I need an Internet calendar, to see all these holidays and such.
