..............

Okay, so I've been away for a really long time. I had to take three standardized tests in a row, and I'm only two-thirds through. Also, due to the fact I have no discipline or motivation at all, I'm giving up on my latest RPG project. I have seriously tried to make a simple 2D RPG at least two dozen times, in the past several years, and I have...

So I haven't put anything in this journal for a long time, 'cause nothing exciting has been happening with me (unless you call playing Baldur's Gate for the billionth time exciting).

But now, I'm working (again) on a game engine. Woo.

But this time it's different for the following reasons:

I am not planning this at all, I will just refactor as...

Back

I just got back from China.

Here is a list of weird crap that I ate:

-Sea Cucumber
-Soups made from various parts of the lotus plant
-Chicken Feet
-Tripe Sausage
-Duck's tongue
-Jellyfish
-Pork Gellatin
-A whole fish (literally)

The general rule in China is to not ask what you're eating. It's dangerous.


Okay, now that I have had a huge hamburger, I...

I'm finally back

It's been a while since I wrote an update. I finally have internet access since moving into the president's mansion on campus here, with a shiny new 3 megabit connection (I realize the rest of the world snickers at this. Stop snickering and get me a 10 megabit connection). I really didn't have a lot to do programming wise. I was just working on...

Random updates

About a week ago I got back from the National Youth Leadership Forum: Technology. It was pretty cool. I got to tour the nVidia HQ and listen to a seminar by Blake Ross, who was a great speaker.

I'll be moving to 'bama soon, this friday in fact. I'm in the process of cleaning out my room, throwing stuff away and such. I can't wait, our house will be really...

Hou zhou bu jien

I recently got back from a ten day long trip to Boston. My dad has a friend who is now high up in Chinese public health, so he arranged a conference for some Chinese scholors and did some lecturing. This is about their fourth one. I was there this time because I like Boston and some of the Chinese were here in North Carolina too before we went, so they...

Art of Computer Programming and some random rambling

I just got a copy of this three book set because I realized that not only would what I learn help me with my love of little projects like the XGameStation, but would make me better at coming up with quick algorithms and just make my code better. I have been slogging slowly through the difficult math, as I'm only 16, and haven't had calculus, or...
