Everyone pretend this blog didn't die for six months, okay? Okay. Here's a brain-dump of random things I've learned while not blogging.

  • Distributed programming is tough but really, really fun.
  • gevent, Couchbase, Fabric, and pyzmq are awesome.
  • Django's admin interface can be twisted fairly easily into a CMS for a dynamic website.
  • Bed bugs + week-long power outage + another week with still-broken A/C = fun summer.
  • Leaky washing machine + computer in basement directly beneath = new computer.
  • A bike is the best thing ever when you're in college.
  • Spotify is the best thing ever regardless of time or space.
  • Batman was eh.
  • Bourne was great.
  • Game of Thrones, holy crap! Both the books and TV show. Amazing.
  • Buy a Mosin-Nagant. Best $100 you'll ever spend.
  • Girls, how do they work?
  • Writing HTML5 games is a thing which I can do.
  • Don't submit your cover design contest entry a month early, they might totally forget you.
  • Tribes is fun and free.
  • Battlefield 3 added Counterstrike's gun-game mode. Best ever.
  • In December, Lord willing I'll be graduated, living in a new apartment, working full-time for an iPhone game studio. Holy crap.

Life's been busy, but this last semester is pretty easy, so I've had lots of time to work on Lemma. No time to talk about it now, but keep an eye out for a juicy trailer / alpha download soon. For now, I'll just tease you with this!

Thanks for bearing with me people. You guys rock.

A game with "cool" graphics doesn't mean that it will be a good game.

About this game (LEMMA), I really like the concept, no matter about the graphics, keep up your great work!

@eigenbom yeah it wasn't idiomatic C++ at all, they just transplated Obj C stuff. when I saw the first node->release() call I about vomited

@eigenbom I liked it too, but I think it's completely different now. Apportable took it over and they kinda merged with cocos2d-x I think

@eigenbom oh yeah. makes equations absolutely unreadable!

3hours 43mins ago

@eigenbom I've also seen in cocos2d for example they use macros like ccpVec2 x = ccpAdd(y, z);

@eigenbom ah, that makes sense

@AmazingThew pythong sounds like a fantastic python fork. Let's make this happen

@t_machine_org Makes sense. Maybe in C# 9 we'll get pointers and the ability to turn off the GC.

@t_machine_org I agree 100%. But I'm curious what kind of architecture it is if the caller doesn't know anything about the data.

Checking analytics. So far, no reported crashes. Yay.
