Is awesome. Seriously. You should buy their products whenever possible. Best. Customer. Service. Ever.

So I’m trying out Windows 8 (yes, it’s not released to the public, and yes I have it legally). Dear God, what a mess this whole Metro/desktop thing is. Someone over at Microsoft must have split personality disorder or something. How in hell did they think that was a good idea?? Anyway, the OS does [...]

I recently played around with my own library (see an earlier post about the sun effect) and I found it… well, lacking. In my day job I do a lot of framework/library code for re-use amongst my co-workers and I’ve learned a great deal over the last few years of doing that professionally. There’s a [...]

So, I’ve started to transition some things over to Facebook. This may not go over too well for some people, but life is hard, you’ll get used to it. I’ve moved the screen shots over to it, and ported the important parts of the wiki to the notes section. It’s not a replacement for the [...]

So, I bet you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to lately… You haven’t? You selfish bastard. Anyhow, I’ve gotten around to playing with this library I wrote for a bit. I do so little programming on my own time these days and honestly, I never much cared for Gorgon (I felt it [...]

I’m sure people think Gorgon is dead. Well, it’s not dead, but certainly not active either. I’m pretty much done with writing for it (bugs being an exception). If you’re interested in helping maintain it, please let me know via the forums. My day job and my social life (which I’d neglected for too long) [...]

So I’ve finally gotten off of my lazy ass and uploaded a new version of Gorgon. This version contains all the bugfixes, and enhancements that have appeared in the Subversion repository over the last few months. You can read about the changes here. Then you’ll probably want to download it.

It’s been a while since I’ve last updated, over a month actually. I’ve been dealing with some major real life issues so I haven’t had any time to devote to Gorgon unfortunately and I won’t be able to for a while (at least not until the end of August). I recently dumped the latest batch [...]

Work is overrated, I don’t recommend it. I disabled comments because I’m just getting pummeled by spammers and no legitimate comments. So I say fuck it and fuck you spamming cocksuckers. If you have an urgent need to discuss Gorgon or whatnot please use the forums.

So my US counterparts. You have a new president. I’m a Canadian, and I’m a very proud Canuck. For the last 8 years I’ve watched the US get flushed down the toilet by incompetence and greed. Because of this it became a shadow of its former glory. And now you’ve gone and elected a man [...]

And thus why I did this. Plus I’m wanting to move away from my gamedev journal, it’s… yeah, it’s just fucking bad. So from here on, all Gorgon related announcements will appear here and my rants, which are just fucking awesome, will appear here as well. Any future projects will have announcements here as well.
