Settlement guards in Vangard are now patrolling the key locations (market, chieftain) and taking alternating night watches and sleep breaks. Due to a small bug, they do forget to have a nap as soon as they reach home, but I know the solution (just too late to implement the fix tonight). They don't know how to fight yet, but I am sure the civilian populace are reassured.

Figured it out... it's due to the Project Naptha extension. This extension automatically detects and transcribes words in images. Looks like it didn't work so well....

@ra4king Congratulations, that's huge!

I've been trying to focus on myself lately and expand my hobbies, so recently I've begun working out hard (trying to bulk up, I'm too skinny!), I'm going to get my motorcycle license and just bought a brand new Subaru (base Impreza in white) so I'll start learning about cars and engines and all those things, I'm designing my first tattoo, taking a photography class at my local community college, I'm going to be recording drums for my band's first album very soon, I'm coding my band's website and I'm finally very close to getting my first project out into production at work!

Really I'm just trying to stay busy and meet new people because all of my friends are away at college. Life is starting to look up a little again and I'm just letting life take me where it wants. Hopefully I'll do some cool things along the way Smiley

That is the spirit! I'm in the same kind of situation. I got lots of friends but they do not live nearby. In fact, quite far away. But because I didn't want to feel lonely in the city I live now I've started doing all kinds of stuff. Really, it motivates to do these things. I see enough people complaining about their lonely life while not doing anything about it.

That being said. Today I finally managed to finish my bumpmap shader. It took a while but I'm satisfied with the result. Here is a small GIF showing what it looks like.

uploaded another random screen capture to youtubes.

i call it "brute force cpu reference 512 rays per voxel face progressiv refined by frustum in 8 rays packs occlusion raytracing".

even with the progressive refining it runs at 3 to 4 kk rays/sec over a 1024^3 space. which is not too bad i guess. usable for tree-preprocessing or background updates, maybe not that strongly visible but that gave me a good insight into the algorithm. it's no cone-tracing, noise goes away when cranking up to 8k rays per face, which is too much Smiley

the pause at the end was actually a breakpoint which if forgot to remove, silly me.

Finally got around to working on my non-existent web development skills Smiley.

Learning project 1: 'Welp'

I learned how to use some of Express, Node.js, Nginx and others. Very fun; I will probably work on this more in the future.

It's a super fun place with a lot of work too. It has and is changing fast. Almost too fast even.

Pretty solid backend tools those you listed - they work well together. Careful when jumping into front-end with the myriad of frameworks available (most of which are basically new programming languages in themselves) - learn the basics first (i.e., stay away from front-end frameworks).

Also unless you locally have something similar installed you may find this helpful: http://devdocs.io/

Working with the backend is also a good time to get familiar with Vim. It may or may not change your life forever.

Went and got contacts today (also ordered red tinted aviators Wink ), and now it's hard to keep my eyes focused on my monitors at work... today was supposed to be refactoring day but oh lord this is hard! Almost crashed a couple times coming in to work today because my depth perception is completely wacky!

@Opiop
Hah I know how that is! I first got contacts a few years ago and it took a few days to adjust. Now I most definitely prefer them to glass, but make sure you don't keep them in for too long... your eyes get incredibly dry after a full day

@ra4king
I've actually had contacts a couple of times! Tried them out when I was a lot younger and hated sticking my finger so close to my eye so I gave up Sad I think this is my 3rd or 4th time going back to them, I'm finally comfortable with them and it's a great feeling! Glasses are ok, but contacts are far better IMO and the level of definition that you can see is just... astounding!

Luckily my eyes are adjusting pretty good, I'm still having a little trouble with reading text on my monitor but everything else is crystal clear Smiley

Since monday I'm studying again. This time it is Human-Centered Computing to get my Master's degree.
The difference between a Bachelor's course and the Master's course is amazing Wink
Now I can finally work with high end technology. The Bachelor's course was merely the basics.
Looking forward to work in the virtual reality lab!

Found some nice syntactic sugar in Java today:
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
10  
11  
12  
13  
int example = 0;
switch(example) {
   case 0:
   case 1:
   case 2:
      doThis();
      break;
   case 3:
   case 4:
      dotThat();
      break;
   ...
}


Don't know how I never came across this, but cases '0', '1', and '2' will execute 'doThis()' (provided the variable we are switching on evaluates to that case of course), while '3' and '4' will execute 'doThat()'. Really saved me some time today when I ran into a situation where this was very useful!

Also bought some red-tinted aviators, I like to think I look like this infamous movie character Wink :

In addition, you can also do some cool things like this:

1  
2

4

8

10

int example = 0;
switch(example) {
   case 0:
      doThisSpecialThing();
   case 1:
   case 2:
      doThis();
      break;
   case 3:
      doThatSpecialThing();
   case 4:
      doThat();
      break;
   ...
}


In this case, 0 will call
doThisSpecialThing();
then
doThis();
, while 1 & 2 will just call
doThis();
. Same with how 3 will call
doThatSpecialThing();
then
doThat();
while 4 will just call
doThat();
.

Switch-case "fall-through" is generally possible, yes, and attributed to the way it is implemented in native code from the native language it was borrowed from, C, but generally this would be considered bad practice, because it is easier to understand when each case is isolated in behaviour from all other cases and no case can magically be reached by fall-though from other cases above it.
The Eclipse IDE for once (and I am sure others too) has the option to flag this as "Potential programming problems."
In my opinion, fall-through should not be adopted and excercised by programmers. Smiley

falling through in a rather large set of programming problems makes the code easier to read, write, maintain and faster.  Classic example is state-machine related.

Agreed on all points except "easier to read/understand." And imho state machines, like a language parser, should not be hand-written but generated from another easier to understand representation.
