Neuroscience Meets Games

Posted by Promit, 26 September 2011 · 767 views

It's been a long time since I've written anything, so I thought I'd drop off a quick update. I was in San Francisco last week for a very interesting and unusual conference: ESCoNS. It's the first meeting of the Entertainment Software and Cognitive Neurotherapy Society. Talk about a mouthful! The...

Understanding Subversion's Problems

Posted by Promit, 12 March 2011 · 587 views

I've used Subversion for a long time, even CVS before that. Recently there's a lot of momentum behind moving away from Subversion to a distributed system, like git or Mercurial. I myself wrote a series of posts on the subject, but I skipped over the reasons WHY you might want to switch away from Subversion. This post is motivated in part by...

Evaluation: Git

Late copy of a Ventspace post.

Last time I talked about Mercurial, and was generally disappointed with it. I also evaluated Git, another major distributed version control system (DVCS).

Short Review: Quirky, but a promising winner.

Git, like Mercurial, was spawned as a result of the Linux-BitKeeper feud. It was written initially by Linus Torvalds,...


Evaluation: Mercurial

Copy of a Ventspace post.

I've been a long time Subversion user, and I'm very comfortable with its quirks and limitations. It's an example of a centralized version control system (CVCS), which is very easy to understand. However, there's been a lot of talk lately about distributed version control systems (DVCS), of which there are two well known examples:...


BioReplicant Crowd Simulation

Been burning the oil on this for a couple weeks. What do you think?

Vimeo link (looks nicer)

Also can't help but notice that YouTube HD's encode quality is awful.


NHibernate Is Pretty Cool

Posted by Promit, 22 July 2010 · 234 views

HIt Ventspace to read my latest rants.
My last tech post was heavily negative, so today I'm going to try and be more positive. I've been working with a library called NHibernate, which is itself a port of a Java library called Hibernate. These are very mature, long-standing object relational mapping systems that I've started exploring lately.

Let's recap....
