GDNet is teh roxzor!!!!!!11!111!1o1neoNE!O!Oo!o1enoneo!!

Let me introduce myself,
My real name is Stefan Lulham though some people call me Stephen and others call me Steps. I'm 19 (20 on may 4th) and I live in the UK in a lil village called Horam.

History
I started programming when I was about 8 I guess, well anyway the first language I remember programming in was Amstrad BASIC (I believe the instruction manual had some code in the back which I used to copy). Some time later we got a PC and I started playing around with QuickBASIC and later (much later) we got VisualBASIC so I played around with that a bit as well. Nothing really constructive came out of those years however I still kept programming and eventually I found Blitz and WOW!

I was really impressed with that language and made all sorts of lil demos(games) and had a blast doing so, it really is a easy language to pick up. About one year after I got Blitz3D, BlitzMax was released and that introduced me to some really cool OOP stuff and I fell in love.

The BASIC languages have limits however and sure enough I wanted more. Fortunally Microsoft was there to feed me with FREE express editions. I downloaded C++ asap and really haven't looked back.

While all this was happing I also found time to fall in love with HTML, PHP, MySQL and CSS

Current Projects
Well I recently brought some domain hosting and started making a website based game called MeloTribes as well as that I'm working on a 2D game engine, the design documentation to which can be found here(WIP).

RL stuff
I go to Park College in Eastbourne (about and hours bus ride from where I live) and study Computing, Maths and Graphic Design.
I work at the CoOp, in a town not too far from where I live, on the frozen section so I'm nice and cool in the hot summer days :D

Recent Stuff
I just brought my self Office 2007 and have ordered Vista HP which should be here tomorrow YAY. Also I have about 5 weeks of college left (until exams :<) so revision is the word I'm hearing a lot lately.

Other Stuff
You can visit my website at http://www.fallenmoondesign.com which currently has a video of me using my engine (which is called FallenEngine btw).

Questions
Did I write this in notepad first, Yes. I don't trust online forms, they are subject to me accidently pressing shortcut keys.

That's about it, cya around.

Welcome to the journals! I also write my journal posts in notepad. You only need to lose one massive post in a browser crash to make you want to switch to an external editor.

Welcome to Journal Land the third time!!

I don't mean to seem picky or anything in your first post, but...

In your video, could you just show the actual engine running? Maybe I am too impatient but watching you type comments in Visual Studio kinda turned me off.

I'll try and watch it again though, and leave some more useful criticism =)

But again, welcome!

Hehe, That was the plan but the video capture software made it compile 10X slower :/. I think I'll put up a new video.
