If you must blink, do it now.

Pay careful attention to everything you see and hear, no matter how unusual it may seem. And please be warned: If you fidget, if you look away, if you forget any part of what I tell you—even for an instant—...

    by Cory on May 19, 2017

    Sorry if you were expecting an actual update. I'm about 40% done with my ECS implementation and then I'll start a series of posts about it. But for now, I'm going to post this article I found other game dev people talking about.

    Tearing My Hair Out

    by Cory on April 12, 2017

    I haven't updated in a while. Sorry. I thought after I did Serialization, everything would be smooth sailing and I'd finally get to the interesting parts. I was reading up on entity component systems to beef up my Entity class and the more I read,...

    The Worst Best Dream

    by Cory on March 16, 2017

    I usually have bad dreams. Those I can handle. The ones where I'm usually being yelled at or fighting or about to get murdered. Or that one where I was in a camp for troubled kids and everyone "graduated" except for me because they evaluated me an...

    Serialization sucks even more...

    by Cory on February 4, 2017

    Wow, so compared to Serialization (translating data structures and objects to and from strings), GUI programming is exciting as shit. I went for more than a two month gap between committing changes and updating this idea. Figuring out a nice way t...

    The Ultimate Nightmare

    by Cory on November 23, 2016

    Sometimes when you sleep, you dream about being late for class, or being out in public without any pants. Other times, Scary Terry comes along and calls you a bitch and you just gotta run and hide. And every so often, you have one of the most pant...

    GUI programming sucks...

    by Cory on October 23, 2016

    I got to my code to the point where I can click buttons to lay down different tile textures on my map editor! Previously I hardcoded keyboard buttons to do this, which was a quick fix, not to mention really annoying to use. But now I have some app...

Why Programs Fail: A Guide to Systematic Debugging

Andreas Zeller

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.

The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor

Mark Schatzker

I got this for free in audio book form and the narrator had an annoying as fuck voice. However, the book was interesting. It's making me think about raising chickens and being a food yuppie too.

Stranger in a Strange Land

Robert A. Heinlein

I read this book because it's where the word "Grok" comes from. Valentine Michael Smith is the first human born on Mars. He comes back to Earth and starts a sexy space cult. Weird and creepy book imo
