#4889990 I spent high school in front of my computer

The problem that keeps coming up here is everyone thinks they are always right. I would have said the same thing. What is your gripe with not having fun in the real world and meeting people? Sitting in front of a computer is 1 thing to do. If that is all you want in life, then that is boring. I partied, played several live shows in band, recorded other bands, was a well known skateboarder, hung out with drug dealers, had a g/f, job, and still at the time of attending digipen, was miles ahead of everyone. If you never had fun in high school and weren't social, then you wouldn't understand. I had so much fun and so much time to do whatever I wanted, I learned a lot more things than just programming though. Once you are older you have time for maybe 1 thing, while working 9-5. When you are young you have the time to learn a lot more, meet a lot of people, and shouldn't be burnt out.

Biggest issue with statements like this, at least in my opinion is this is _MY LIFE_, not yours. What is boring to you, I might find to be the next best thing besides sliced bread. I could argue that watching sports aka grown men chase balls like dogs is utterly boring while others would highly disagree with me and the circle will continue forever. We could keep throwing arguements back and forth about what YOU feel is "FUN" or "LIVING" and I could come with counters of what I feel are "FUN" or "LIVING." In the end it is our life to live and if anyone is narrow minded to believe that their way of life, what they enjoy and dislike is the "way" things should be then they have more issues than anyone or anything I could mention and really isn't worth debating with them and wasting my time on people who are clearly a hopeless cause.

In the end the majority of these "people" who most people believe are doing "boring things" (behind computers for example) usually end up making improvements in every aspect of our life. Some people will never be thankful for anything and believe the world revolves around them. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Thank god there are many who don't cave to such narrow minded aspects of others. /salute to them.

This is a little off topic but as you already have taken the thread that way I figured what the hell.

I can say without a doubt it is a pity reading posts like yours Mr. Bdcroteau, well rather the responses. You have several brilliant and kind users who are attempting to help you and all you do is give them hell for not giving you the exact details of what you want (basically code to copy). On that same note, unlike the others I HIGHLY doubt you work hard at your job. By the tone of your posts you most likely go around other forums demanding help and then get snotty when it's not a copy/paste of code that you want (this is clearly stated in your first post).

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

As for there are no "helpful sites" out there you again obviously haven't worked very hard in searching. A simple "dx11 engine tutorial" gives several links including : http://www.directxtutorial.com/ which gives ... gasp .. step by steps instructions *that work* Same with http://www.rastertek.com/tutindex.html . Found both these sites in 30 seconds of my time. You're a computer programmer and don't know how to do a search? :blink:

I don't have any other words for you but Jason Z, YogurtEmperor and others , don't let new users like this detour your [continious] help on these forums.
