  1. Free thoughts and a Game

    Well, it's that time of year. Everybody's celebrating something from Christmas to Thanksgiving to Hanukkah...

    I'm on thanksgiving break. It's nice. I guess thanksgiving is just an American holiday? I think everyone should be greatful and stop being so greedy the next day on black friday...ahem...

    Anyways, I've been drawing pictures of how I want my drawing program to look and work. It's rather weird drawing pictures of a drawing program, but it has to be done. And it's ...

  2. Math and Programming

    Lately, math has been on my brain a lot. As well as chemistry, but that has a lot to do with math.

    I've been studying trigonometry in my pre-calculus course this year - if I haven't already mentioned that. It just now dawned on me how useful the unit circle is and what it does (at least it makes more sense than it did!). I wished I had understood it better two weeks ago when I first learned about it, oh well lol.

    Anyways, I've been researching the Windows GDI API, and ...

    I did not know I had a blog, but apparently I do!

    I'm not left out! I feel special!

    Moving right along...I imagine I'll be posting here a bit since thinBASIC is my programming language of choice. My current project is a drawing program that utilizes polygons. I found a library called clipper that helps with polygon clipping and path operations.

    I originally intended to use bezier curves strung together as paths but ...

  4. The Name is Variable

    What's in a name? Well, the name of something can make all the difference in the world. I've come up with two names for my latest project, the text based simulation game. And, no, one of the names is not Variable. That was simply part of a catchy blog post title. If you have gotten this far, my clever (yet corny) name for this blog post worked.

    The two names are as follows:

    • Perfect Harmony
    • Impact!


    The exclamation point in Impact! is ...

  5. Influence and Inspiration

    My latest idea for a venture into the wonderful world of programming is the creation of a text based simulation game. Of all the projects I have undertaken, completed or not, this one is probably the biggest one. Games that have influenced and given me inspiration for this project are many and varied.

    My first foray into the land of simulation was the classic Sim City. I was in the 7th grade. It was a computer technology class. Every two weeks or so we would change stations, each ...
