  1. Going multithreaded...

    Well, after having dabbled on this topic many times before - I decided I'd do AMD's latest chips a favour and make my code benefit from all that threaded goodness they can offer . So, I dove into the code archive and found some bits and bobs that had been gathering dust for a almost 2 years now... Turns out that since then a few bits were depreceated with FPC 2.6.0 . So I changed all the Execute() calls to Start() and hey presto, the old code had some life breathed back into it.

  2. Back into development - why breaks aren't a good idea...

    Well, as promised, I'll be putting a few more things up after having come back into the development scene. I'm pretty much jumping ship with my LD entry - despite it showing good progress, something I wont go into the details of .

  4. An Indroduction

    Hello PGD.

  5. Back into games and... stuff...

    Well its sure been a while since we've seen a blog post round here, and even longer since I last went up and wrote something... Reminds me theres that game tutorial I need to write up for the article pages along with a potential followup to that little OS development spiel I did a while back, but on a slightly broader platform...

    So anyways, what have I been up to these past months? Nothing special other than the culmination of the 5 final years of compulsory education and college ...
