I quit smoking 1 month ago today. And no, I don't feel any fucking better, and anyone who would claim otherwise is lying or never smoked. Because of this I still hate every single human being on this wretching festering pile of a planet. That goes doubly for linux and Apple (e.g. the iPhone is trash, and now you need to rationalize why you wasted $600) zealots... When your supposed revolution comes... you'd better have a lot of you to put my back to the wall, because I'm taking you fuckers down with me. Fuck you. [evil]
On a more pleasant and cuddly note I'm attempting to drop Managed DirectX in favour of SlimDX. It's been difficult, but worthwhile. I rag on Open Source quite a bit (mostly because of the warped viewpoint of that retarded filthy hippy/nazi Richard Stallman (= 2nd coming of Hitler), you can go fuck a horse you cocksucker, just fucking die already)...[tears] but it does have a place in the universe especially here. I won't recite the reasoning on why SlimDX exists (read the thread for that, Promit sums it up nicely). But I have to admit, as a developer, when something in a library is broken it is nice to be able to fix it myself (this however should not apply to Operating Systems, Office apps, etc... again, in you case you missed it the first time: die Stallman). It has a place in the development world indeed.
Right I'm going to kill some kittens.
