All About Me
My name is Metorical and I'm a 23 year old Technology Consultant. I live in London and work in the City at various Investment Banks. Unfortunately I do not work directly for the Banks else I'd be earning a whole load of money but I manage to get by on what I do get ;)
My work involves the implementation of my companies products for their clients and ranges from simple installation to customisation of core functionality. I'm not a developer so I don't get to play with C/C++ everyday but I do get to use our own inbuilt scripting language and TCL.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my girlfriend, keep fit (although that's gone down the pan of late), hang out with my friends and program!
Getting Back in to the Swing
I couldn't start a journal without pictures so here you go! Last Bank Holiday I found myself with almost an entire evening free so managed to knock something together in about 3 hours:
As you may have guessed it's a Geometry Wars clone. In Alien Ressurection Ripley comes across a room with all the previous failed cloning experiments, herself, the success, being number 9. My clone represents number 1 or 2 at the moment!
While it may not seem impressive (and it really isn't) I'm still quite pleased because this was my first forray with the SDL and I have to say I'm quite impressed. I was able to get the xbox-360 controller pad working in less than 30 minutes. All I need to add now is gameplay.
Anyway enough for now... hopefully I'll have some nicer pictures to show you soon and I'll also have to have a chat about my design.
