  1. Prometheus - The 2nd Generation: Almost there

    After a tedious 1 year of SDL and other performance, stability and compatibility hassles its was time to rebuild.

    Prometheus now runs faster, smaller and more flexibly - and work is still being done in this area. Now theres an application logger that can be toggled at a flick of a bit, its pure OpenGl code that talks directly to X11/WinAPI and it has no DLLs/SOs. And to add another plus theres some extra niceness in the Utils unit that lets you lear out arrays with a single command, ...

  2. Articles vs Blogs - the ultimate question

    Now before the wise guy/gal says it, the answer to my dilemma is NOT 42 ... Ok, just jokes...

    In all seriouslynesses (I am familiar with grammar btw) my blog posts may hit 900 or so views - and thats fine with me but then there's that article section that has more discussion about 'Tripping the Class Fantastic' By AthenaOfDelphi (Great read, highly recommended - especially the one on multithreading) and TileD demonstrations among a quick tanks tutorial by WILL (Also a great read and ...

    Finally, nearing the end of term, the sun is not shining and its usually raining or windy - its the coding season

    In all seriousness, after the fiasco I had in the last Ludum Dare to try and sort out language fails, dependency fails etc... I had a brainwave: 'scrap it all and start over' - and for the past few weeks thats exactly what I've been doing.

    So for now, prometheus is X11 only - but only for now. This is thanks to my extensive use of {$Ifdef linux} window management ...

  4. Crash and Consequences

    As some with reporter/staff privileges may have noticed, Spam was rife in the last few days - and for once I have a good reason to not have logged on in the past few days...

    Bar the history, the problem I faced at the start of the week was an entirely re-written inode structure on my home ext4 partition - linux users among us will note this as serious.

    To make matters worse, this occurred while I was testing out direct access to the disc in an attempt to manipulate Ext ...

  5. Windows 8 - First Impressions

    Now, as you may/may not be aware, windows 8 is now in its public infancy - early after windows 7 and there is a very good reason for that. Once you take a look at the base of the UI you find that it seems to have its roots sturdily sunk into Windows phone 7, the future as MS called it.

    Now, I have an Acer Aspire 1425p, (and I might get the bitter truth out there early) with a capacitative multi touch screen on which to run this startmenu-less OS - but I doubt many others do . Further, ...
