    How did you guys do?

    Congrats to everyone who worked hard and got the grades they deserved. I finished with six A's and one C. French was the killer. Thank god I'm done with it for good. I still finished with just over a 3.6 out of 4. And I only took 17 hours this semester. Some you people are hardly taking enough classes to be considered students. [wink] (Just kidding...) Next year I'll be taking almost entirely computer science classes, so I'm really looking forward to it.

    [java] Java 2D Graphics, Threads and Classes

    Oops...sorry for not logging in. Here is my post again, this time with the links: Killer Game Programming in Java is a good book that covers 2D and 3D game programming in java. Many drafts of the chapters that were published in the book are available in pdf format on the website. The pdf on the site for Chapter 2, here, describes an animation framework for using java 2D, including "active rendering."

    Why my kids will be home-schooled

    I was also homeschooled for the majority of my life (5th grade through 12th). Homeschooling absolutely provides a better environment for learning that can be personalized, allowing a child to be educated at his or her own pace. Outside of the education provided by the current school system there are other parts of the school's social environment (drugs and alcohol for example) in which children shouldn't be involved. My earlier education (K-5 to 4th) was at a private school and I can say from experience that the learning environment there is no better than what you spoke of ApochPiQ. Homeschooling doesn't at all limit your social interactivity. In many ways it improves it. I was also involved in a local homeschooling group, like ApochPiQ. The "socially deficient" homeschooler is simply a media stereotype. Homeschooling is also no longer a hindrance to receiving a college education. I have no high-school issued diploma (which is literally worth the paper it’s printed on), and I was accepted at the university of my choice (where I am currently attending on full scholarship, having been offered scholarships to several other schools).

    Post pictures of your hobby! (56k Beware!)

    Quote:Original post by Prozak ... Multitude of Awesomeness! ... Seriously, that is incredible! Could you post more information and some links? I would love to find out more about what you are doing, and about how to get into this. This is exactly what I'm interested in. I'd like to get into simpler things like controlling electronics from my pc. I would appreciate any more info you could provide. [smile] Oh, and rating++ for the sheer awesomeness.

    The mp3 is just some song ... "always look in the bright side of life..." I've got my tinfoil cap on just in case though.

    Mmm, editor.

    Wow, those poor 'Test Fucktards'. [lol] I like the name for some odd reason. That screenshot just goes to show what some guns, gore and body parts strewn across an otherwise empty map can do for a game. Seriously, nice work.

    So now I have a few invites for anyone who wants one. PM me an email address. Thanks Mushu![cool]

    Internet Explorer 7 stole my calculator

    Python also makes a great calculator, if you have it installed. [smile] WindowsKey + R "Python"

    Little Windows trick for you...

    While Windows + M minimizes, its counterpart is Windows + Shift + M, which restores.[smile]
