This weekend I took the time to find all of my ancient blog posts from various now-defunct blogs and stick them here. Finally, all of my failed projects are collected in one place!
One day in the early nineties when I was around eight or nine years old, my dad came home with two mysteriously acquired computers. Living in a tiny Dutch country town of about 1500 inhabitants, I wasn’t exposed to much in the way of high-tech, so this all felt very special and a bit magical. I had seen a computer before at school and on TV, but never actually used any, so this was all very exciting. I loved the way these machines looked: one was massive and square, a Commodore PET model 4016, the other rounded and much smaller (this may have been a simple dumb terminal like a Lear Siegler ADM-3A, I don’t remember).
First of all, happy new year to you all even though it’s a bit late. Have some cake.
I’ve been keeping busy with some new “projects” lately, most involve OpenGL and Direct3D but more on this later when I have something to show or share.
Right now I’ve been disappointed with the stability of the new Visual Studio version, 2008. While there are some great new features for C++ programmers, my debugger seems to crash every now and then when debugging native code. I wonder if any of you out there have had the same problems…
Nevertheless, I like the new version and what its capable of concerning native C++.
