It's been a few months since I have been around these parts of the intertubes. Have I missed much GDNet in the past few months? Has anyone actually made a Hockey MMO using HTML, or managed to stop goblin genocide?

mmmm.... Not much happened here on Das Lounge either.... It was a personal blog for a while, and now it is some language/devkit/games opinion/poll board.

Has anything changed at all over the last 10 years? I'm back and directly onto "are global variables bad" and "are singletons bad"? I feel like I'm a teenager again.

Then again, I don't see much "I've implemented my own containers because stl is too slow, but why isn't it working?!" posts anymore.
Yet, one implemented it's own c-style string routines today. That was scary :)

Nobody's made a Hockey MMO, but some GameDev users are working on stopping the goblin genocide as we speak.
It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

Apparently Black Rook plays a goalie though , so we've got the hockey part covered ;D

Sounds like Mozila though came up with an HTML 5 / JavaScript MMO called BrowserQuest. Perhaps we could leverage that to make the hockey HTML MMO :D

That's actually pretty awesome.

Well, as for me I've been busy starting a relatively new job at a software company doing business software. It's been rough. The previous developer went off to be a draftsman, and it shows. I've got enough horror stories in a month and a half to write a book.

Speaking of books, I've also recently read a few - Paul Allen Idea Man, Len Beadell: Too Long in the Bush, and I'm currently reading Masters of Doom.

I've got a few other exciting things coming along, but I can't publicly disclose them (or at least I shouldn't... yet).

Hey Moe, nice to see you're still around :)

I haven't been on for quite some time either and I feel I somehow lost touch with GDNet as well. Good to see some familiar names here on this thread, now that the rest of the site feels like an alien planet of some sort ;)

We should do this! Then, we should dig up that legendary old thread (does anyone remember the username of the guy who wanted to do this?) and tell him he's not crazy after all.

Vipejc. It wasn't really a single thread, it was a combination of several threads over several months. A small selection here, here, here, here and here.

Those were epic times indeed.

Seems like the lounge doesnt get much traffic nowadays, and the discussion is not as edgy as it used to be. Or maybe im just getting old, who knows :)

Yann - now there's a familiar face I haven't seen in a while! It is good to know there are still a few familiar faces around here.

Eelco - Epic times indeed.

I just noticed the old Hardware forum is missing. Is it actually gone, or was I not looking hard enough?

It's gone - they decided there was too many subforums, and to consolidate and refine the categories (discussed here).

Understandable. It seems like the place has shrunk a bit.

I miss the days of yore when these forums were hopping. I hope on every couple days to see what is going on and well, I see the exact same threads :/
