Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name...

forum, community
So, when I am on this site, I am a total noob, but on this other site they think I am a genius. hehe.

I like being right in-between though. I can learn from the best and brightest and take what I learn, decipher it, make it simple, and share it with the common folk. And we all know I am one of the "common folk."

I am on a new path, one that I think wil...

Albert Einstein thought like me

Einstein, Albert, thinking
I have always had thus idea, that if you can't mask something easy for a little child to understand, you reall can't teach.

Today I found a quote by Albert Einstein;

“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
― Albert Einstein

The other day, I was thinking how easy it is to have complex information, but how hard it...

Your game is a dime a dozen

Unique, game
Found this definition:

A dime is a small amount of money. A dozen is 12 items.
When something or someone is described as being a dime a dozen it literally means that you can get lots of them for a small amount of money. - ie There are plenty more like them about. (the person or item is not unique.)

How does this make me feel?

Like crap.

How does one...

I'll always be a novice

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 31 January 2014 - - - - - - · 673 views
novice, noob, beginner
I always consider myself a novice at things, because I am always learning new things, and always assume my understanding or skill level is always inferior to the many possible advancements I could make in the future.

So I have been calling myself a beginner in computer programming, though that may not be entirely true, but I know that my skill set is inf...

Gonna try out Mind Mapping

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 30 January 2014 - - - - - - · 629 views
mind, mapping, idea, sketch and 1 more...
So, I had been browsing a good app to help me make an outline, couldn't find one. Passed over a few mind mapping apps, but they looked like high school projects I had to do.

Fast forward a few months, and I am literally making a mind map to record my ideas, but not considering that I am using what I thought was useless to do it.

So I sorta re-discovered...

Programmers talk "Alien"

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 29 January 2014 - - - - - - · 757 views
programmer, langauge, hard
A little frustrated because just browsing through forum posts on any programming website full of competent programmers sounds like alien talk.

I mean, do you really have to abbreviate english? See so many topics that sound like the person is speaking in a broken english-like JAVA.You don't use terminology that requires specific knowledge when you are ma...

boolean., cause, effect and 2 more...
So, it is sunny outside, and that makes you happy , so you go outside to play . But then, it starts raining which makes it rainy , and that causes you to be sad . So, you decide to go to sleep .

I sat down today and thought of a way to program cause and effect. I came up with this notation:(initCondtion, initState, initBehavior) + Action = (deltaState,...

I finally realize how important planning is.

plan, important, produce
So, I am the type to work by trial and error, usually. I get stuff done, sometimes.

However, every time I sit down, gather my thoughts and type out a plan, it seems I have more control over the processes I take to accomplish something.

You know how in the PC version of the Sims you can record footage and compose it into a video? Well, I was making a f...

Why am I making a game anyway?

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 17 January 2014 - - - - - - · 685 views
game, industry
Am I trying to change the world? Am I trying to create something I will play every day of my life to pass time? Am I trying to make money from it?

Most games today are temporary games and have no real value. So why am I even thinking about making a game with the hope of potentially making "a" sell? So much goes into them, and if I want it to have any sor...

Games are good social pastime.

game, social, interaction
I had a eureka!

So, a friend and I were bored, and we were wondering what we could do together to not be bored. We could have talked, or we could have watched a movie, or we could have listened to music etc. But we wanted to have fun without having to go out somewhere and spend money.

Well, we played a game!

Games are a good social pastime. And I think...
