Stressed to the point of...

4: Adsense

Stressed to the point of... It's been a slow slog this week. I'm currently landscaping the back yard in preparation for Mother's day, which is when the wife traditionally starts her garden. Bricklaying is hard work, but it's nice using the mathematical means I have acquired through game dev to ensure my bricks run straight and true(for the most part). As a result, I've not had alot of time for programming, and am quickly approaching the deadline laid down by the woman in charge. She is stressed, and that is not good for anyone.

Now, myself, I tend to handle stress alright. Pile it on, and it may get under my skin, but I manage. My significant other on the other hand, does not fare so well. I don't want to say anything that would upset her, so I'll stop there.

I bring this up because I think It's important to recognize stress, and deal with it in a healthy way. I was quite stressed out while working with MRT's in DX9 for the first time this past week. No matter what I tried, I couldn't get anything drawn on my main view window, and I was at my wits end. I decided to take a break, and after a 2 day hiatus, I realized that the RT layouts were not bound in the same registers that the pixel shader was expecting. With that out of the way, and a bit of mixin' code to draw the light sources, I ended up with this, and am excited to see how far I will go until I need to break away again.

In the mean time, back to the bricks....
