ECS Concepts – Part 8: ECS Integration

by Cory on July 15, 2018

I was going to call this post “Systems” but then I realized I already made a post called “Systems”… Anyway, let me layout how my engine is organized because I don’t think I’ve done that from beginning to end in a single post. Let’s zoom ...

    Day 86: Lets Try to Fix This

    by Cory on July 12, 2018

    After work today, I took the water reserviors out of the planters for the first time since I made them. I was wondering what it would look like, or if the roots would have bound to the pot so hard I might not have been able to take it out. Everyth...

    Day 83: Too Close to the Sun

    by Cory on July 10, 2018

    "Plants belong in the ground"


    "Plants belong in the ground", said the old man. I looked away from the bucket I was holding and squinted up into the harsh sunlight.

    'Suck my ass, old man. Go away", I told him. I was in the middle of wate...

    Day 82: I'm Getting Sick of This Shit

    by Cory on July 10, 2018

    It looks like I"m going to have to water these plants everyday. Yesterday, I let the resevior dry out for about 3 or 4 hours, because I waited 2 days between watering and the big garden gem already wilted pretty hard.

    And this picture was taken...

    Day 80: I Need to do Stuff Again

    by Cory on July 7, 2018

    The tomato plants' growth is slowing down as they start to get bigger. I'm a little concerned about the W hybrids because even taking into consideration that they are younger than the other plants, they don't seem to be growing very big. I think i...

    Day 75: Plant Update 2

    by Cory on July 2, 2018

    I've settled into a routine where I refill the reseviors of all the planters every other day. I fill up the entire bucket and leave it out on the bridge for the entire day, under the sun, and then water around 6PM before I leave work.

    I'm hoping ...

    Day 68: Plant Update

    by Cory on June 25, 2018

    Here's a plant update.

    Garden gem 1 continues to get big as fuck.

    The other 5 plants haven't taken off yet, but they are now lush and growing bigger and more leaves like this first one up here. Also, the summer mix is sprouting nicely.

    The ...

    Day 66: I Hung Them All

    by Cory on June 24, 2018

    They're all in the air now. Fucking finally. I"m exhausted.

    Also I read on the internet somewhere that you should prune flowers when indeterminate plants are between 12 and 18 inches tall. Since my garden treasure is even smaller than that I migh...

    Day 65: The First Blossom

    by Cory on June 23, 2018


    It's my first tomato blossom! This is coming from Garden Treasure 0, which I transplanted less than a week ago. From above the bridge, it's still not much to look at because the plant is still small and scrunched up against the bottom...

Snow Crash

Neal Stephenson

This was ok. It gives me a super Neuromancer feel crossed with Idiocracy which is cool. The characters Hiro and Raven are cool too. It gets kind of fan fic -y with Hiro's samurai swords and Y.T.

This is a textbook. It's FUCKING BORING. But it picks up somewhat after Ch. 5 and has some really good ideas in it. I begrudgingly have to keep this book on my shelf.
