So I'm having to improvise by listening to Radio 5's commentry and watching the official live timings. Not quite the same as getting to watch it though [sad]
I'm starting to get my head around this whole MVP thing, and took the time to try and write a public profile. I read everyone elses first to try and get a working idea - but I'm note sure I like it. I really don't like writing "self profiles" as they always seem to come across as being fairly arrogant.
List of the 23 'Windows - DirectX' MVP's contains My Profile. The profile includes a somewhat rubbish looking mugshot of my good self, should be interested in putting a face to the words... [smile]
Any thoughts - do I need to change it?
I'm a little conscious that I haven't said much about my progress with the programmable pipeline. I'm hoping to get back in with that one in the next week or so...
It's not that I've actually stopped working on it, more that reading through my book doesn't really warrant any interesting commentry from me.
I've finished Part 3: Advanced Reflectance Algorithms this morning. I didn't like reading that part so much - a lot of mathematics and theory. Don't get me wrong - this is interesting, but I want the practical stuff!
Once I've got a practical implementation with a basic explanation I'll go back and cover the finer mathematical theory... In some respects, the theory is pointless as I don't have a context to drop it into - all those factors, terms and equations don't mean much to me yet...
I've also started working on a new header for the top of my journal. Feedback a while back wasn't so favourable on the bright-green table - just haven't had time lately to go about changing it [smile]
If you got this far, well done - many thanks for reading!
