...uh, exactly what do you think I do, JD?

I dunno. I vaguely remember that you worked for A Company at one point, doing Things. This is more than I usually get up to.

Also, everybody on the fucking planet should read The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.

I read The Art of War. I'm still procrastinating but now I know how an army should react on facile, dispersive and desperate ground.

Ever "borrow" music for your games, then later when they come up on your usual playlist you realize halfway through the song that it's not the soundtrack to your fucking game?

IT IS SCHROEDINGER'S BUGFIX.

More terrifying than getting rotation code right on the first try: getting hardcore assembly-style stack manipulation right on the first try.

EPILOGUE: It turned out to be a slower implementation and did not solve the problem I was having anyway.  SEE ABOVE!

:sadpanda: Sorry to hear about your stack manipulation not fixing your problem.

... Why the hell was it less efficient anyway?

Tracking that stack pointer is a computational bitch.

I'm not using it right now, but between whiteboards and anime cels I'm all out of room on my wall.

Arc is apparently awesome.

There will be pics eventually but first I need to find a cherrywood desk to pose with.

Hmm.  I think I just spent the last month on collision detection.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT PLAQUE ARC I LOVE IGNORING ITS SAGE ADVICE.

...oh, right.  Um.  This is what Arc sent me.



I need to either go find a stand for it or actually *gasp* hang something on my wall (my office is as empty as my soul).  Apparently my need to do this is rather immediate, because the thing has to be staring me in the face at all times lest I fall to temptation and geometric kerjiggery.

You have to have a proper perspective on this sort of thing.  Like, for the guy who actually needs open heart surgery, it's relatively easy; the guy doing it is the one making things much harder for himself.
