    Error Handling!

    OMG!!! h_o_p_s!!!!11!! You were gone for a long time, then you came back for a post or two, then you were gone again.... then I left.... Yeah, I left game development.. hehe, and I have no complaints. My social life is about 100000000000000x better now :) (no offense to anyone, this is just me). (yeah, I just decided to check gamedev out again for kicks)

    Let There Be Sound

    Whoa man, you almost slipped by me :) As is the tradition with new "journal land"-ers, I will give you my complimentary rating++. Good luck with your projects, you seem to be on the right track :)

    Traffic jams and killing fields

    Uh, oh. Nice job on getting suspended. Guess dave does't like that frame rate :)

    Questions, comments, concerns?

    My welcomes too :). Have a rating cookie. Have fun here, and yes, these guys know what their talking about. We need pictures to tame our game-induced ADD minds.

    The new hotness

    Dang, you made the corv-arri before I did :P I once started a model that looked like a corvette and ferrari, but I see you have beaten me to it :) (with the rear engine and scoops)

    GDNet-

    No, Rob, Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't leave us Rob, we need you... I need you... Look, I don't use GameDev much anymore either, but I've got it so that it automagically deducts money every time it needs to be renewed, so I don't have to even worry about it, yet I still have all of the evil gdnet+ powers immaginable. And it's hardly hitting my wallet at all :) Don't give in to fear, fear leads to.. oh screw it, dood, just keep your GDNet+ and let us hear from you from time to time through your journal. Don't pull a h_o_p_s on me, I don't think I can take that again *cries*

    meh... moodswings... meh

    Haha, sure I'll do that, but I can imagine what the members of my group would do if they found out that I committed this heresy [smile]. And are you joking about 35 degrees + humidity? Or do Canadians use celsius, I'm a fahrenheit guy myself :) The people are nice you say? I've got a friend from Massachusets who says that the farther you go north, the meaner the people get, especially to tourists.

    Cool, I was only a few minutes away then :) Ah, Emeral Point... Good times, good times... Don't think they've got those in Toronto though...

    I've barely touched my engine in 2 weeks or so. I've had another thing enter my life. I don't even know why I'm posting. I don't know if I'll continue my 4e4 project, but at least my engine is at a good stopping place. It loads and renders models and stuff, so at least it works. I've been wondering, what is Toronto like? Is there lots of public transportation there so that you can get around without a car? (I'm afraid mine won't take the weather) What are some good places to see? Where's a good place to take a girl there? What parts of the year are relatively warm and snow free? I've heard canada has 2 seasons: Winter and June :) PS: Betcha anything Rob Loach will answer this one :)

    Thanks for the warm bon voyage guys and to answer your question Programmer16, I did not fly :/ I first stopped in Jacksonville (north florida) to stay with my cousins/aunt/uncle for a day. My uncle is a successfull web developer and he really knows his stuff (finished top of his class, etc.) He wants me to intern for him at his company when I'm done with high school, and I think I will. Thats's right, I let the cat out of the bag, for those who don't already know, I'm only 17 (18 in september). Up till recently I've been pretty secretive about my age due to the fear of age discrimination (I guess). It was probably obvious though. After that we went to Fort Lauderdale (south florida) which is where we stayed at a mediocre beach resort. The beach was the most beutifull i've ever seen it. The water was a clear emerald green. I've been told the farther south you go (till you hit the equator?) the clearer the water gets. At the bahamas it's clear blue, so there you go :) We also went to miami (even more southern florida). There we took a ride on a glass bottom boat. Really cool, we saw some baracuda's, sharks, other fish, and ship artifacts. I'm so glad to be back though. During the trip, I spent some time reading "tricks of the 3d game programming gurus" just for kicks. I've had the book for months just never read it till now. I'm so glad I don't code like him anymore :) Meanwhile my engine hasn't gone anywhere in 10 days or so. I've got a really polygon heavy lamborghini floating in my window and my frame rate is really bad (~7 fps). I need to work on a scene graph and some occluding technologies to gain some speed, then a basic mesh terrain, mabey a hight map in the future. So then... wait, I'm hungry
