S-L-I-D-E Tables Up
Argh! and I have been competing quite
a bit for the fastest time on TechSlider. We both eventually ended
up with 14.8 secs (but I think my demo is a little more creative ;).
The rest of the maps are pretty easy to rank in (for now), so just about
any time will get you on the table for a little while. The SLIDE
record table is in the Gaming | Slide section of this page.
If you've got a fast time, record a demo of it and send
it to me. I'll try and get the new demos and times up ASAP.
Welp, I didn't get everything done
I had hoped to on the RAWscape program, but as you can see from this
picture, it's coming along nicely. Combined with Argh's lighting
it has some pretty realistic effects. It's still got its bugs tho.
You can see where it gets cut off in the top corners of the picture.
Since this is my spring break and I didn't bring the source home, I won't
be working on it again 'till next week.
I went down to Atlanta to check out
Georgia Tech, and then visited Clemson on my way back. I'm obviously
interested in the computer science stuff, which both schools are well known
for. Georgia Tech sounds like a better choice for name and reputation,
but if I was going to base my decision entirely on the visit, I'd pick
Clemson. They both seemed about equally equipped as far as computers
go -- lots of SGI's, etc., but there was a big difference in the faculty.
The people at GA Tech were too busy to help, and some of them were, to
be blunt, arses. This visit was sorta planned via email, and it didn't
turn out well. The faculty at Clemson, on the other hand, was very
friendly and helpful. People would stop what they were doing to help
out and give me a tour and show me all cool classes and stuff. I
also got to talk to a few of the teachers. Before I hadn't really
considered Clemson that highly, but now it looks pretty cool... *sigh*
Picking a college isn't easy :\
Computer Geek + Sun = Red Computer Geek
My parents had me help them paint
the boat this weekend. Fun :P Needless to say, I got a little
toasted. Some things just aren't meant to be mixed (like geeks and
the outdoors :)
