Day 150 [DONE]: Mission Accomplished!

by Cory on September 17, 2018

On Friday, I ate home grown tomatoes of all three varieties. I started all this gardening hoohah to answer one very simple question. What the eff do these tomatoes taste like? That douchy guy in the Doritos flavoring book made such a big...

    Korora 22 on a Thinkpad Yoga 12

    by Cory on September 3, 2015

    So I finally got that Yoga I was thinking about. I got a nice $300 employee discount, plus a $100 amex credit, which is good because I wanted the Thinkpad Yoga equipped with an active digitizer for drawing and writing. Unfortunately, the Thinkpad ...

    General C++ State Machine Class with Non-deterministic Transitions

    by Cory on August 15, 2015

    I made a state machine class in C++ for my sfml test. I'm planning on using this to record game state, entity state, and player input like in fighting games, for example.


    What I had in mind was going to be a really, really, general ...

    Gotcha when casting from sf::Vector2i to sf::Vector2f

    by Cory on July 25, 2015

    I've been tracking down this odd mouse bug for the past two weeks (not really two weeks, I keep falling asleep instead of working on this...).

    If you try the current code commit, if you pan the mouse, you might notice a large jump in position bef...

    SFML Test Continued

    by Cory on July 12, 2015

    I've been struggling a little bit to add more features to the demo, mostly because I have no idea what I should do. I spent a good chunk of today just tooling around with SFML stuff and I think I made a bit of progress. Much of what I'm working on...

    Limping without a Foot on the Beach

    by Cory on July 12, 2015

    I had a strange dream yesterday. It was a very long dream split into two parts, but I don't remember much of it anymore. The part that stands out the most was of me on a sunny beach with crystal clear azure water. For some reason I thought it look...

    SMPS Research

    by Cory on July 8, 2015

    The trail from the old SMPS design website goes cold after they talk about Buck converters (circuits that convert DC voltages into other DC voltages). From doing more google searching, I gather there's much, much more that needs to go into the des...

    PPCL: Actually Full of Young, Bright Minds

    by Cory on July 8, 2015

    I'm sitting in the cafe of Building 12 awkwardly touching elbows with a bunch of 24 year olds that I don't know who are all sporting arrogant smirks. They seem familiar with each other and for some reason, I feel completely out of place, even thou...

Web Client Programming with Perl

Clinton Wong

This is a basic and outdated book but it's good for learning about perl and html request interactions. It's another textbook though so that was kind of boring to read.

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.

Niccolo Machiavelli
