So I've been sick for a few days and haven't got much done, but this news is just too good not to pass:
PALERMO, Italy (Reuters) - An Italian couple stole 50,000 euros from a woman in the Sicilian city of Palermo after convincing her they were vampires who would impregnate her with the son of the Anti-Christ if she did not pay them.

The man, a cabaret singer, and his girlfriend took the money from their victim over four years by selling her pills at 3,000 euros each that they said would abort the Anti-Christ's son.

Police uncovered the fraud after the 47-year-old woman's family became concerned when they discovered she had spent all her savings, local news agencies AGI and ANSA reported.

Also, Patrick wants me to link whore his blog

yay, journal whoring. Somehow noone cares about my personal ramblings and my upcoming adventures into the bowels of Managed DirectX 9.

Also, I heard OpenGL is MUCH better than DirectX:


[22:53:39] Chrîlle: Ok.. and the video is for the best api, OGL
[22:54:00] ;p Toolmaker: rofl, that's the most idiotic statement ever
[22:54:19] ;p Toolmaker: On what did you base that OGL is the best?
[22:54:36] Chrîlle: I have read some things and OpenGL is way better
then DX.

It supports more things.
its easier to use.
Network programming in OGL is twice as easy as DX.
And some more
[22:54:57] ;p Toolmaker: "Network programming in OGL is twice as easy
as DX."
[22:55:07] Chrîlle: yeah
[22:55:23] ;p Toolmaker: Did you know that OpenGL is a fucking
GRAPHICS API, and not a networking library? I don't know
where the fuck you read that, but you're misinformed
[22:55:55] Chrîlle: it works the same way as dx but easier thats what
i read and thats for networking
[22:55:58] ;p Toolmaker: <Toolmaker> Network programming in OGL is
twice as easy as DX.
<ravuya> wait what
<ravuya> network programming
<ravuya> in opengl
<ravuya> what the fuck
[22:56:09] Chrîlle: yup
[22:56:24] ;p Toolmaker: Is sound programming better in OpenGL too?
[22:56:32] Chrîlle: Dunno about that
[22:56:48] ;p Toolmaker: I can tell you the answer:
[22:57:00] ;p Toolmaker: You know what GL stands for?
[22:57:11] Chrîlle: Graphic Library
[22:57:22] ;p Toolmaker: Correct, would a GRAPHICS LIBRARY, have
networking support?
[22:57:59] Chrîlle: yeah, well thats atleast what i read then I dont
know it opengl has some extra applications or something
[22:58:07] Chrîlle: if*
[22:58:16] ;p Toolmaker: owned:
[22:58:17] ;p Toolmaker: "OpenGL was designed to be output-only: it
provides only rendering functions. The core API has no
concept of windowing systems, audio, printing,
keyboard/mouse, or other input devices. While this seems
restrictive at first, it allows the code that does the
rendering to be completely independent of the operating
system it is running on, allowing cross-platform
development. However some integration with the native
windowing system is required to allow clean interaction
with the host system. This is performed through the
following add-on APIs:"
[22:58:20] ;p Toolmaker: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenGL
[22:58:31] ;p Toolmaker: Your sources are WRONG
[22:59:36] Chrîlle: Well thats what I read, and I dont believe its
[22:59:49] ;p Toolmaker: Then don't, and be misinformed
[23:00:07] Chrîlle: it was something WITH opengl then, that made
networking easier
[23:00:38] Chrîlle: ehh anyways cya..
[23:01:47] * Chrîlle is nu Offline

After this, I blocked and deleted him from my list. He's an idiot.
