Of course if your parents are  gonna let you live at home and theya re gonan feed you then its a whole different story...


Yeah.  I still live with my parents, and will for the next two years.  After two years (transferring in from Ventura Community College), I plan on living on Chapman's campus.

Wow, great story Vorax. Smiley  That's very impressive.

I'm more of a casual programmer though; it's not my preferred career (just my second), so I don't know if I could pull something like that off, if only because I'm spending most of my time working in the direction I'd prefer to go (filmmaking).  In other words, I'm not "truly dedicated to programming."

That's still very awesome.  Which company do you work for?

BTW, to keep everyone update, the interview at the hospital went well, it looks like I'll get the job.

Along with that I'm doing some low paying contract out programming in my off school time.

Thanks for all the help guys. Smiley

I'm sending in an application to the hospital (10.23 an hour).  My dad knows people there (he's the supervisor of the same department at a different hospital), so hopefully that'll help me get in. Wink

By the way Woogley, I'm taking my senior year of highschool at the local community college.  I only have school two days a week. Smiley

First at 18 it's enough time to get a degree.
Second if money are what is is for, it would be better if he would work in hospital, and do programming in his free time, and try programming job after finishing university.

10$ * 40 hour  * 4 weeks * ~25 (conversion)

I'm still in highschool (actually college courses for highschool credit) ; 20 hour week is most I could manage.

A sidenote, movie making might be easier to get into. Barriers and costs for movie studios have decreased, so it's somewhat cheaper and easy for them to exist, and do stuff. Not to mention an hypothetical increase in TV studios, because of digital broadcasting.

That's good, seeing as it's my chosen career.  i just am looking for a job to carry me through highschool and college.

Gah. I think you're all wrong. Send me your CV + portfolio (adam at - I'm looking for someone who can churn out small and interesting java games very fast, and do their own artwork too - but since the timescales are very short, the aim is to be cunning and avoid needing much artwork in the first place.

If you look at the best games from the 4k contest, that's the lowest end of what I'm after. The highest end is e.g. a 3D game written in 3 weeks from scratch (using as many libraries as you can, and any other shortcuts you can think of).

Unfortunately, I really want someone who can work from London, so you probably won't get it, but it's worth a try (there is a very small possibility we'd accept a remote worker).

I PM-ed you.

About the years of experience, you can allways colaborate in open source proyects.
There is no excuse for a just-graduated cs engeneer for not having such a thing like experience Tongue (or at least that was said in a open source speech at the college)

Well I have plenty of time, I'm not even a highschool grad yet. Wink

If you want to program computers for a living, get the degree

Hmm.  It's not my first career choice.  My primary choice and dream is to be a filmmaker, but I'm being practical and realizing the chances of that are slim, so I'm going to minor in CS (majoring in Film Production).  Is minoring good enough?

Ok, I had figured that's how it'd be. Smiley  Just wanted to make sure. Smiley

Hey guys, I live in California (Ventura area).

I've been programming in Java since I was 13, when I was 15.5 or so I decided to pursue developing skillz in computer art and such, so I sort of abandoned programming, only occasionally writing some code now and then.  About six months back, I decided I'm not really cut out to be an artist, so I've picked up programming again.

I'm turning eighteen at the end of this month.  I've already bought a car (found a great deal on an almost mint condition 1993 3000GT SL), and I obviously need a job for insurance when I get my license, which I'll be getting at the end of this month.

Now, I can work at a hospital for about ten dollars an hour, which is a good wage...but I'd rather not.  I'd rather not work at all, but I need money, and unfortunately nobody planted a money tree in my backyard.  Roll Eyes

So if I have to work, I'd prefer a job in IT at the very least, and I'd like something that'd have me writing Java code.

I searched on Monster for java programming jobs in my area, and everybody seems to want college graduates  with one to two years of professional experience at the least.

Should I give up on trying to find a programming job?  If not, where should I look?

Other than the afore mentioned lack of a screen rez setting, the game is great.

I also have a problem with alt tabbing; the screen seems to move down; it's weird.  I'll get a screeny later if you need it.
15  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: 4+n letter file extensions (small rant) on: 2005-03-19 22:48:18
That's also why it is criminal for Microsoft to disable showing the extension for so-called "known file types"

Yes, but you can set the file preferences to show the extension always, that's what I do.
16  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: 4+n letter file extensions (small rant) on: 2005-03-17 00:28:27
I don't like spaces in file names; I dunno why.  I always use underscores or dots.  For picture files I'd usually do something like: Name_MM.DD.YYYY.extension

Works ok for me. Smiley  Besides, in modern OSs, there isn't a limit to your extension, is there?  

.htaccess comes to mind, but I'm not sure if that's really an extension with no name or a name with no extension.

.tiff is 4 letters as well.

Here's another one of me now. Tongue

I got tired of coding my IK system today, so I goofed around with my camera.  I recently bought an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Socket 949 processor that I'm probably going to put in Sunday, which is what I'm holding. Tongue

Back to coding. Tongue

What's wrong with Overloading?
20  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: J4K on: 2005-03-01 06:28:41

I'm not sure I think ease of starting the game should affect the scoring at all, since that's one of the few things the original rules were clear about:

I'm with JBanes.

I did not play several of the games because I didn't feel like extracting the zips and locating (or run: cmd and cd-ing over to the correct directory).  It's too much work for a game I'll play at the most a few times.

Click and run (executable jar) or webstart please.
21  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGF v3 - status on: 2005-02-27 17:00:30
I like the new logo colours btw (I'd change the purple though maybe, it kind of clashes with the red). Smiley

If you like my work, I could also create other GUI elements.  For example, I really, really don't like that gradient silver oval thing that the links are in...  If you want, I could design something nicer?

Also, we need the text Java Games Factory anti aliased or something, it looks dreadful. Wink

Let me know.
22  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: FoodBomber on: 2005-02-26 17:36:18
Forgot one reply:

You're absolutely right. I'll add both a text and timer.  Wink


Thanks! I felt stupid sitting there staring at my screen that long. Wink

@ blah^3, what about the system timer that's actually accurate?  That's why I upgraded to Java 1.5 (it's still 1.5 to me for some reason. Tongue)
23  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: FoodBomber on: 2005-02-26 07:43:05
It's good, although you may want to add something along the lines of "press space (or any key) to continue" at the end  (Beginning) of each level; I sat there waiting about 10 seconds for the game to start and nothing.  Embarrassed

Lol, good work. Smiley  Nice graphics, gameplay is fun.
24  Game Development / Performance Tuning / Re: Calculating the FPS on a simple game on: 2005-02-26 07:17:13
Here's my simplified game loop:

     public void gameLoop()
          nextCheck = System.nanoTime() + 1000000000;
          frameCounter = 0;


               while(System.nanoTime() < beforeRender + (1000000000 / game.FPS))

     private void calculateFPS()
          beforeRender = System.nanoTime();

          if(beforeRender >= nextCheck)
               nextCheck = beforeRender + 1000000000;
               fps = frameCounter;
               frameCounter = 0;

game.tick() , this is just how I'm delegating things. Tongue

game.getFrame().render();  = me showing the bufferstrategy and disposing the graphics object.

Yes, I know I'm a freak for putting the calculate FPS code in it's own method. Sad

Edit: eh, no idea why the indentation doesn't work right.  Sorry.

Edit 2: This code locks the fps at 60 fps (the value of my constant).
25  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: Automated webstart-maker: need game authors on: 2005-02-26 06:54:13
I'm confused a bit as well in regard to why security matters.

Aren't you uploading what other people will be downloading anyway? :S

If this is referring to shooting yourself in the face, it's a goddamned shame you didn't succeed.

Somebody with moderating/admining privledges, PLEASE IP ban this guy and delete all of his posts, and all of mine that respond to him.

Someone, please, hand me the fscking ban hammer so I can slap this prebuscent 11 year old into internet oblivian.

angelfaerie, run to mommy and say that you are too young and too stupid to use the "internets."

Or another alternative:  For the love of humanity, take one for the team and shoot yourself in the face.  The world will be so much better off.

I'm with blah^3 here.

My average class length is 200-300 lines.  I have some classes as small as 10-30.

Yes, I like my classes small and manageable. Smiley
