So yeah a basic form of normal mapping? Not really sure of any other ways to do this other than normal mapping.

Oh. I think you're talking about normal maps. Something like this?

render the background, then the shadows, then your foreground.

Was on a long bus ride, so decided to try to program some boids, in Python. Hate the language, but it was easy to get up and running at least.

Code can be viewed here:

Programmed some boids in Python because I haven't messed with it in a while. Now I remember why.

I also just got back from talking with the IT director at Duke University, it was really neat. We talked about what courses there were and stuff, and I got the feeling I was pretty well off in terms of my knowledge compared to other applicants. Hopefully this'll help me in my interview when I apply!

14.992 average of 100 solves, also got a 13.77 average of 12. If I got that average while competing at Worlds I would've placed in the top 100.

Got my first sub-10 second solve, at 9.91! Very very exciting moment for me, as I think this is really the defining moment of me passing from a regular speedsolver into a nationally competitive one.

Also going in to have a talk with the director of the IT program of one of the top IT schools in the country in a few days!

....apparently someone really likes notepad++.

I've been developing my entire OS in ASM and C just using Sublime and gcc. Not as difficult as one might think.

It's not a self diagnosis. I've been seeing a psychiatrist for about a year now and he had me go see a psychologist. I'm not sure of the entire process, but it's definitely not a final diagnosis. They just said it's a possibility, which honestly wouldn't affect me if I was. I'm still the same person.

I discovered I may have ASPD, or to use the more common term, a sociopath. Not really sure how I feel about that. It explains many things, but.. It's interesting to think about.

Looks great herjan! I use AwesomeWM as well, it's really nice. If you ever use pianobar, PM me; I wrote some stuff to integrate it into the window manager (shortcuts, display stuff, and the like).

Here's my basic but (highly) functional setup. There's a bunch of small stuff in the background that I've scripted in, but this is the main interface. Used it for almost a year now.

Finally got around to programming Conway's game of life. No clue why I didn't do it before. But it works. Space to start/pause generations, Q/W to increase or decrease ms betweens generations.
14  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Programming Laptops on: 2015-10-20 01:48:09
Well... what kind of development? Graphics, neural nets, small scripts? Honestly there's plenty of laptops that'll work fine for any of those. I'm not really an expert on all the different ones out there, but I do know you have practically unlimited choices.

Just... please not a Mac..

Got a sub-16 ao100 - in other words, the average of my last 100 logged Rubik's cube solves were mostly in the 15 second range! Climbing the global rankings Smiley
I haven't done much in terms of programming. Haven't really got much to do, since I've touched on almost everything I've wanted to.. neural nets, graphics, networking, reverse engineering, many languages, killer arch system w/ awesomewm. I just.. don't know what to do.

It's making me pretty sad actually Sad

Developed a few Lua/Bash scripts to allow me to communicate with Pianobar (a pandora CLI client) via shortcuts n stuff in my window manager, AwesomeWM. I can choose another station with a little popup using zenity and view song info and other things with popups from the awful library. Fun and interesting way to learn how to use pipes in Linux. Plus got a 16.67 average of 100 today on 3x3!

Going to my school's homecoming dance with my girlfriend in a couple hours too. Never really participated in dances until now. Wish me luck, heh.

By far my biggest pet peeve in games. When my player doesn't have a shadow it definitely takes away from the immersion.

My girlfriend left me a week ago today (dated her for a 1 1/2 years and we were very close), and also realized that I had lost a lot of friends while we were dating. Coupled with that, a lot of my other friends from high school are away at college. I'm almost completely alone and it's driving me crazy, I'm trying hard just to stay happy.

You're unmotivated because you're coding all day at work, I'm sure that's a large factor. I know that when I'm coding for work during the summer I'm almost burnt out by the time I get home. I'm sorry about your girlfriend man, that really sucks. Life goes on though, and now that you're out of high school there'll be plenty of other people out there for you. If it means anything, we're here for ya. Smiley That's what community's all about, support.

Discovered I rank among the top 200 cubers nation wide. I guess that's not that great, but I'm getting there.. Averaging 17-18 seconds nowadays, with a best of 12.20.

On the coding side of things, still banging out code (and my head...) for my OS. Lots of underlying framework stuff like file system drivers, vfs code, and messing around with switching between ring 0 and 3.

Got my driver's license! Could've gotten it almost a year ago, but never really took the time. My girlfriend and I also celebrate our 1 year anniversary very soon.

ATA PIO driver working completely! Read and write functions with multiple sectors working completely flawlessly.

Finally got my basic read function working in my hard disk driver.. geez that took longer than it should have. It's pretty cool to mount a virtual disk on a loop back device and then mount the partition to edit the data, then see that show up on your OS. I've checked the virtual disk using a hex editor, and these values are correct! Very satisfying.

25  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-07-23 03:55:05
Got my braces off!

Also, finally getting back to my OS. Developed a very basic PCI IDE driver to read from hard disks. It... kind of works. Also started testing some more advanced memory management for running multiple programs. After this, I'm wanting to look into writing my own bootloader so I can change video modes in real mode and have a better resolution.

I'd love to! I'm free all day tomorrow. It's a super impressive project.

It's just annoying really. They're upsetting a large portion of their users that really don't give less of a shit, they just want to read their AMAs and AskReddits. What's going to kill me, is when r/nosleep goes down.

Wow. I don't know what to say, other than I'm sorry. I know I, for some reason, hated it every single time someone told me to be strong or I'm sorry when one of my closest relatives passed away a few years ago, but.. Again I don't know what to say. I hope you can remember him with happiness instead of sadness, and recall the good times instead of the bad ones. My heart goes out to you and your family.

I finally took my first steps into operating system development, my i686-elf cross compiler is being built as I type this on my desktop which is now running Ubuntu on my second hard drive. I'm excited for this, it seems incredibly interesting and I like working in low level code (or, at least I think I do. We'll see in a few days if I actually like it).

I'm also still working on my new game! I'm just coding here and there whenever I find the time, I like doing it like this instead of forcing myself to sit for hours and code. Let's hope I finally can get something done!

I highly HIGHLY suggest getting used to the nix command line and using an actual linux operating system, like Gentoo or Arch. None of that Ubuntu crap. I personally suggest Arch. Yes, it's difficult to install for newbies, but that's a good thing. You have to be absolutely solid with the CLI.

I'm using the Fridrich method Smiley 2 look OLL and 2 look PLL, you?

I'm still a huge noob, I haven't touched the cube in a few days so I hopefully have them stored in muscle memory

Fridrich, 2LLL. Good luck Smiley
I'm hoping to compete soon, just need to find a competition near me. I'm not expecting to do very well, just going for the experience. It's a great community!
