Notes:

Mostly self-taught programmer living in São Paulo, Brazil. Corporate code monkey by day, wannabe free software hacker by night. By the way, English is not my first language (such a convenient excuse). Contact: m (at) fzort (dot) org You won't find me in any of the "social network" sites. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Live, what have you, I'm not in any of them. Sorry. My "blog" is now at fzort.livejournal.com.

HOLD ON TO YOUR VIRTUAL REALITY GOGGLES

After banging my head against Blender's interface for a while, I decided to leave behind any hope of modeling realistic 3D assets for the game I'm working on, and instead go for minimalistic, mid-1990s ciberspacey visuals. It's looking like this. Please ignore the pathetic FPS count.

I'm using textured billboard quads for the "antialiased wireframe" look. I have to sort all polygons in the scene back-to-front for proper transparency, so I'm using a BSP tree. Adding moving objects (like foes you can shoot at) to the BSP tree dynamically is presenting some interesting challenges.

I should upload a video soon.

Y'ALL SUCK

Reading comments written by Americans on news sites like Yahoo under the story on the recent massacre in Afghanistan can get quite depressing. I'm sorry, I know I shouldn't, and I'll be the first to admit that my own country sucks, but it's really, really hard to avoid generalizing, you know.

BEST PRACTICES



The Wikipedia article on Google Panda has, under the References section, a link to an article called "How Google's Panda Update Changed SEO Best Practices Forever".

Let's meditate on this concept for a moment.

SEO best practices.

SEO. Best. Practices.

It's great to code knowing that no one else will ever see what the hell you did.
