KaiHH,
Could you check out my mat4 class later and tell me what is wrong with it?

Throw up a pastebin link and I (or anyone else) can have a look through it. (Also, being more specific as to what is wrong would help)

But you really should just use JOML.

What did you teach, deltOr?
Statistical genetics, plain statistics, Bayesian statics, MCMC methods, population genetics, and Public DNA databases and how to not be bad on computers. Also some plain CS stuff.

I did enjoy teaching. But at universities it counts for nothing. Only publications do. Hence why so many bad teachers at uni, we mostly just don't give a rats arse.

However the uni's i worked at in the EU didn't have the English speaking uni scams of the professes textbook being the course book or his buddies. Some of my engineering books were over $200. I just went for old editions that where fine. They really didn't change anything.  
Haha, yes that's prevalent in Australia too. Another trick they use is to take a US book and 'Australianise' it with a handful of new questions or case studies, and then become a joint author and make the students buy that odd new version, making more money for the new author and the publisher.

Long story short it was always easier to use copyleft or free as in beer text books and resources for the class.
Free textbooks are pretty hard to find in my subject area which is business. Of course that makes sense, why would a business-minded person give away things for free? Lol.
But I think that a project to make an opens-source textbook, modeled on the wiki community, would be very useful for many teachers and students. I haven't heard of any successful endeavor in the business subject area yet.

Interesting subjects. Have you thought about taking a casual teaching job in Auckland for cash flow while you start your exciting business? I do some casual tutoring in Sydney and it helps pay the bills. 'Data scientist' skills are in vogue these days so your subject area will probably be in demand for competent teachers.

I've been working on setting up a 3D environment in order to have something to use with testing 3D audio. Yesterday I got a 3D chessboard set up with a camera that tools around over the squares, using JavaFX. Today, instead of continuing that, I took a break to write a little "Getting started with JavaFX" tutorial.

Most of the online tutorials I found via browsing are for the old version of JavaFX, not the Java 8 version. There were a number of annoying things I had to figure out, such as which of several options of game loops formats to use, and how to read keyboard input. So, the tutorial (posted in our tutorials and articles section) covers those annoying sorts of basics. Also covered an Eclipse/JavaFX bug that probably also stops a few beginners in their tracks.

My apologies to anyone trying to read it when I was first posting. My current browser is Firefox, and with the changeover to Windows 10, I got saddled with a weird new version of Internet Explorer that I haven't come to terms with yet. Need to download Chrome or something. So there was a fair bit of thrashing while the article was loaded, proofed, deleted, edited, reloaded, proofed, deleted, edited, several iterations of this.

I agree, and don't see big problem in books - we have open WIKI
- make Site - copy past all you need from Wiki + add own explanation
and you receive full book.

Orange, the glow outline seems to fail close to corners, is it a limitation?

Yep.

Currently, it renders a mesh to a FBO,  I then downscale it by half and blur it. Then I use the original FBO and "cut" it out of the blurred FBO. Corners get lost in the blurring Sad

To be honest, it should be fine for practical uses IE outline-ing a gun or player object.

Did a first draft of the upcoming JOML Cheat Sheet (starting with the Matrix4 classes):

So that people would not have to scroll thousands of lines through Java source or JavaDoc.
The Cheat Sheet should provide all information necessary: Categorizing methods, shortly describing them, indicating semantics and overloads.

I managed to teach myself how to whistle (musically, not the earsplitting one). It took several days of trying and just blowing air but eventually I found the sweet spot where I can make a tone easily.

Some advice to others learning: blow air at your lower teeth while making a slight duckface. The whistling noise comes from air blowing over your lips akin to a bottle, not just blowing air.

Thank you Roquen for digging that solution up - we were scratching our heads over that one a couple of months ago.

Relatedly:
Last night I dreamed of a computer language which is formulated line-by-line with questions which are sent to stackoverflow. The resulting program just extracts the highest rated snippet of code from the answers. Then the resulting compilation error messages are fed back to stackoverflow and the answers parsed and enacted until the code compiles and the program performs its expected function. Then it decided we were no longer required and started writing its own programs... and I woke up.

Looks like you dreamed about automating my day job. The only difference is that I am typing the questions directly into the search field and I need to copy'n'paste the snippets by myself. Other than that 100% match.  Cool

Today I dug out my particles tool — it had been quite some time since I last used it.
I had forgotten how AWESOME particles are!

So I thought it would be nice to show you my tool Smiley
(Do keep in mind that this is OLD, UNDOCUMENTED code and that I am indeed very, very aware of how messy it looks)

I'm also raising you my favourite settings for this tool (just copy-paste those into the lowest text field, hit "retrieve settings" and "save changes" (and you should also change the colour to something red to make it even more cool) Smiley

Just a few new features for my editor/window manager:
 - redesigned the resource window (you'll be able to see it in the video)
 - added tooltip capability for controls, etc...
 - added the ability to dock windows
Also added parallax capability (it's technically 3d) and an editor to go with it. I'm sure there's heaps that I've forgotten to mention.

Heh, no I was just thinking of making something that combines the best of Dwarf Fortress (generate a galactic history), MOO2 (deep 4X strategy) and Star Control 2 (to boldly go where no insectoid has gone before!). Kind of mad, really. But I have time.
