So, time to cut back on the fun side of things and do something else. I won't go into that stuff as, to be honest, it's boring.
One thing I found out about today is that Microsoft are hiring physics programmers to "work on the next generation Direct Physics API".
So I guess it's no secret that they're working on "DirectPhysics" or something along those lines...
Having said that, I've not seen any official announcements on the topic nor any information as to what it's all about. Your guesses on DirectPhysics is as good as mine for now [lol]
