    www.ultimategameprogramming.com is very good for GLSL basics. Also the 3D labs website has some good stuff on GLSL as well. J

No, you don't have to accept a raise. But I don't want a pay cut either. Try paying child care on a couple of young children while starting back at a lower (beginning salary) rate on top of a car payment, house payment, etc. Child care is my single biggest expense as I imagine it is with anyone who has more than one child in care while at work ( I have 3 in care. 4 total). Most won't hire someone of 35+ years for what they are worth (in years of experience) when they can get a single person who can work 80+ hours a week for less money, has no outside responsibilities (like staying home with a sick kid, child's sporting events, etc.) the solution is simple: move to india. You might have something there =).

    Thanks for the kind words, Evelyn, I'm trying awfully hard to look at this in the best light possible though I think I would need night vision goggles to discern any light at all. All I can see is tunnel so far. Things will work out, they always do. I just hate starting over after so many years. J

    Hi all, this is just a rant (and a bit of a sigh of relief). My seven + years of tenure at my current employer is coming to an end at 5pm CST. The company is relocating 1.5 hours away (1 way) and I am not going to be making the daily drive (neither is 90% of their workforce in general and all of their ability to support product in the field and to make new product). Seven years of your life down the crapper is a hard pill to swallow. At my age, I don't have another start up in me, and the shelf life of rank and file programmers is limited (you start to price yourself out of the game after a few years, especially with children). Anyway, this Mongolian Cluster F$#k is coming to a close. I am married with children so this is bitter sweet as you might imagine. I can't live on unemployment for long. I've worked for way under market value, worthless stock and unfulfilled promises for the entire time, so I don't have much saved. I have a couple of prospects, one a face to face with a defense contractor in the midwest on Tuesday which looks very promising and would be a step up into management and out of rank and file. I know everyone has their own problems, but I just had to let it out anyway. Thanks for listening (reading) J

    dialog box problem

    strip out the keyboard interaction and Dialog Box creation from the main drawing function. (The following code) In other words make a separate function that checks for keyboard input and switches on the key pressed AFTER your main loop (drawing function). if(open_key pressed){ //dialog box function OPENFILENAME ofn; char szFileName[MAX_PATH] = ""; ZeroMemory(&ofn, sizeof(ofn)); ofn.lStructSize = sizeof(ofn); ofn.hwndOwner = hwnd; ofn.lpstrFilter = "Text Files (*.txt)\0*.txt\0All Files (*.*)\0*.*\0"; ofn.lpstrFile = szFileName; ofn.nMaxFile = MAX_PATH; ofn.Flags = OFN_EXPLORER | OFN_FILEMUSTEXIST | OFN_HIDEREADONLY; ofn.lpstrDefExt = "txt"; if(GetOpenFileName(&ofn)) { //process the file } //end dialog box function } Either that or flip the surface and sync frame rate before you process the dialog request.

    dialog box problem

    Can you post your dialog box creation function? Where and when are you calling his function? J

    Dont see the fantastic four.

    I didn't think that the FF was too bad. I took my kids to see it, and they really enjoyed it. It was a bit juvenile(sp?), but entertaining. I walked into it not expecting an academy award winner. I am a comic book fan from back in the mid 70s and my biggest gripe with all comic book movies is that they stray so far from the comic book stories the characters are generated from. Also paricular to the FF movie, I would have rather seen an entirely CG Thing rather than a guy in a suit.

    Glee is the bee's knees. Makes loading and using extensions a breeze. Top Notch stuff indeed. I pimp it out whenever I get the chance. J
