Should probably point out here that Valve have gone way beyond the requirements set out in EU law... there is actually no obligation to refund digital purchases at all if certain simple criteria are met (see: http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/shopping/buy-sell-online/rights-e-commerce/index_en.htm) For what it's worth, we 100% support customers* rights to a refund, but only if a bunch of other things change.

Enraged the internet last night by daring to be worried about the effect of Steam's new refund policy on income, spent much of today pouring water on the flames. Ended up blocking over 10,000 Twitter accounts, and then finally making the @puppygames account protected. So, well done, internet.

Have you considered to combine motion blur and DOF. This way you could reuse most of the samples.

I saw his post. I'm considering it, but I'm not sure. There are quite a few problems to solve for that to work for me and I'm not sure if it's worth it. I'm currently completely stuck on a massive driver bug causing abysmal performance due to Nvidia's GLSL compiler completely messing up and using hundreds of registers while tweaking a few settings makes it use 6 instead (but with massive overhead). I posted about it on Gamedev for some opinions on the matter: http://www.gamedev.net/topic/669036-nvidia-glsl-shader-compiler-bug-massive-register-usage-for-unrolled-loop/

From the comments on Reddit it looks like your blog post calling out abusive customers is coming back to haunt you.

I decided to try music notation software again today, and I've just fallen in love! It's so much fun. I have so much more knowledge of what I'm doing now and it just kinda feels right. Hopefully soon I'll have some completed compositions to post. ;)

Until then!

Edit: Oh, I forgot I also decided to try to make an action rpg I got inspired to design in a week. Obviously it won't be as fully fleshed out as my design document, but I just really wanted to try something different than my usual fare.

I discovered MGMT  Smiley

Also I have played a total of 23 hours of Retro Pixel Castles which is a lot for me since my most played game is Civilization 5 which I got years ago and yet only clocks in at 75 hours. And I only have 34 hours clocked on Skyrim.

Front end development is now my friend. Am I it's friend?

NO.

*Crawls to the back end*

Seriously though, JavaScript+JQuery is cool except for when previous developers left their code completely undocumented. It's all ready hard for me because I don't know a lot of front end technologies and this sea of unfamiliar, un-commented code did not help anything.

Once you 'transition' into AngularJS, you'll realize 'JavaScript+JQuery' was not so great after all. Pointing

*Sigh* If only my work would allow me such a treat. There's no way we are going to rebuild our entire core framework on AngularJS, think of how much money it would cost them... If it ain't broken (A.K.A 'shippable') then why would management ever want to spend money on it? Gah.

Once you transition to TypeScript, you'll realize what JavaScript was missing all the time, and JQuery becomes great again. Cheesy

I take it back, Asp.NET MVC drop down lists are currently the bane of my existence. My experiences are probably rounding out my skills a lot, but I would be lying if I said this isn't making me want to saw my fingers off with the tip of my BIC pen laying next to me. Or that stapler, that could be good too.

Moral of the story, front end developers are a breed of their own and thank the programming gods for them. Hopefully in the future I won't be doing front end.

Two days ago I got streaming audio to work, with the help of the Ogg codec from Slick2D and some google-fu Smiley

Either wandering the forum or programming. Most likely the latter Smiley

Trying hard to get Ajax to send a damn serialized string over the network. You would think it would be easy, considering it's what the library is made for.

I love my job, but I absolutely hate working with Ajax. Ugh, time to go eat lunch.

Edit:
Figured it out. Now something else is broken too!

And like you mentioned opiop, that's not even the frontend!

The sad thing is we're all paying the price. Webservices are getting slower by the month. Storing / reading individual records on web-scale databases taking 50-100ms, it all adds up, and then you find yourself waiting 1-5s per page load, with nifty loading animation trying to distract you from the utterly horrifying technological deficiencies. Who cares about throughput when compounding inter-service latency ruins the User Experience? Pages loaded faster in the late nineties, and this has nothing to do with rich media, that's a bandwidth issue.

Yeah, I tell ya, the goold olde IBM AS/400 is still in use at one of our customers and nothing beats that terminal beast in low latency and performance! I kinda love it for that unprecedented performance and real pleasure of working with (albeit having to remember all kinds of keyboard shortcuts).
And now they want to replace that with a web-frontend... heavens no! BACK TO THE ROOTS, guys! Smiley

Horrifying indeed.
I'd like to see more fun contests and such involving real engineering like this one I participated in a while ago: http://churchillnavigation.com/challenge/
The guy who got third place wrote up his great solution: https://github.com/sDessens/churchill-challange

The problem is "find the 20 lowest ranked points in a rectangular query on 10M points"
Excerpt from his write-up:
Quote
Assuming 10GB/s memory bandwidth and 10m points, the worst-case running time of this algorithm is 2ms.

2 milliseconds to run through 10 million points in the worst case. Nice.
EDIT: and by the graph frequently the query takes under a microsecond!

Oh god. As someone learning web development and playing around with NodeJS and its related technologies, deploying to Open Shift (because it's free), that article makes me feel like I could never possibly know that much information. Going from a simplistic app.get('/', function (req, res) { res.render('index') }); to whatever the hell that article talked about seems overbearing and unfathomable.

Because somewhere along the line (probably the San Francisco city limits) web development stops being about programming and becomes a matter of fashion.

It's about responsibility and deflecting blame. If one piece of bad behaving code takes down an entire website, it's 'easy' to 'design' your architecture in a way that such crashes remain isolated to a tiny subset of your website. In other words: pointing the finger at whoever wrote that piece of code. If you happen to be the author, make sure you have 5 services up and running, so that if your crappy code crashes, the other 4 services will continue while the crashed one is rebooted.

It's actually not a bad style. It's how Unix/Linux are designed: building modules on top of modules. Every module has its own team, that specializes in that module. The Microsoft way is at the other end of the spectrum, where every project seems to be written from scratch, in huge code bases.

Isolation: good.
Composition: good.
Latency: bad.


Quite a few issues should be solved by hosting all your VMs on the same Host, but that isn't 'web-scale', so we end up with services and databases being 50ms apart, at the best of times. Sometimes I'm hitting >1s latency on reads/writes, with clients complaining about performance. We give them a fancier loading animation, they buy it. Ramble ramble.

If you want to see quality web infrastructure, StackExchange does well: http://highscalability.com/blog/2014/7/21/stackoverflow-update-560m-pageviews-a-month-25-servers-and-i.html

A sensible mix between custom engineering and outsourced tech, mostly an MS stack in this case, all sized and optimized appropriately, instead of gluing as many what-ifs together as possible for things you don't need.
