Well, the bank finally got me my check card, so I got to order my website and GDNet+ membership.. Finally.. after 2 months of waiting and the mailing of my checks and card to 3 incorrect addresses. It makes me wonder if I should still be using them..

Anyways, this is obviously my first entry. It won't let me customize my theme or avatar yet, sooo I have to go without looking at the prettyness for however long it takes.

You probably want to know a bit about me if you're reading this.. Probably not though. Either way, I'm going to type it.

I'm 18, go to DeVry for Game and Simulation Programming, and I'm the President of DeVry Phx's Student Game Developers Association. I also work at a company named inXsol, programming simulations, eLearning and training platforms. It's fun.

I'll be posting here about whatever projects I'm working on. I have one for school, and one big one on my own. More on that later though. Wow, I talk alot.

WELCOME TO GDNET!

I'm currently attending Kansas State myself for CS (and learning about game dev on the side). If you ever want to BS with somebody, hit me up.

Welcome to journal land. Here's the traditional ratings++ for starting a journal.

It's alot of fun, I have to go through a few crap programming courses, but they're designed for ppl with no experience, and I don't feel like spending the money to test out. Other than that, the classes are fun, lots of comedy, good people, and my instructor for Intro to Game and Simulation Programming is like a fountain of game history knowledge.

They're teaching game programming at DeVry now! I guess I should have waited about ten years to go. I graduated in 95 from the Phoenix campus in the CIS track, back when i was all mainframe classes, 1 C class, and a VB3 class.

Wow how times are a changing!

Anyway, good luck at DeVry.

Haha, no, still here, and with that said...

Welcome to Journal Land indeed, and I finnally beat everyone else to it! Rate++ all the way, man. Maybe if you're chill enough, you'll get to roll with my crew. Ha ha haaa... just kidding... but no, really.

If you want your journal to be popular, here are the three keys...

Post lots of pictars. Nobody wants to read your stuff w1th0ut teh p1kt4rZ!

Post alot about whatever project you're involved with. Try to give people insight as to the details of what you are doing while using as little code as possible. Remember, this is a journal, not a tutorial.

It's alright to get personal, and even be liberal about talking about the many details of your life. I know I do. But remember, nobody wants to sit back and load 20 pictures of you and your sister's boyfriend with dreadlocks pretending to eat a cat and trying to pass the dude off as yourself (little nudge, you know who you are... kidding, you're my main man) in dire hopes that you'll write a few sentances about your game project. Especially if you're new to the crew, cause (to be blunt) no one realy cares enough about you yet ;D.

Anyhow, a sincere welcome, and have a great time!
