    My new website

    I just started a website: part blog, part programming. I'm trying to find interesting articles and tutorials to put on my site, some of them I write myself, some I grab from a website (and of course give the author full credits).

    I was just wondering what you guys would like to see on the website (it's in my signature). Game programming related stuff, or more math? Also, please let me know if I have some serious errors in my C++ tutorials.

    Thanks!

    Are you a botanist?

    As an aside, I had read an article about some people at MIT (I believe it was MIT) where they made an 'invisible suit.' It was a suit in which cameras were placed behind the suit in several locations, and the image was somehow displayed on the front of the suit, making it appear as if you could see right through the person.

    I also read an article in popular mechanics about the military doing this type of research for the f22 raptor (although, as far as I know, the 'invisible to the naked eye' airplane hasn't actually been implemented).

    I think your site looks pretty good. I mean this in the nicest way possible (and I happen to like plants) but it seems like a bad idea claiming it to be a programming website, then posting stuff like your plants.

    Also, what compiler do you use? Are there any free development tools for mac os x? I went to metro works website for code warrior, but it seemed like i had to pay for it so I never got into programming on mac os x

    Good luck in your pursuits.

    Just looking at the front page, I'd say you're not only a botanist, you're also a pretty good photographer. Good luck with your site.

    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who cringed when reading the beginning of this sentence and those who salivated to how superior they are for understanding something as simple as binary.

    I've just requested a dhost account - I've been looking for a free hoster that doesn't get rejected by .tk for... bizarre reasons (that I still don't have an explanation for, yes dot.tk, I mean you ).

    I really want to stay with thejefffiles.com, so (and I know this is *technically* cross posting. Technically.) if anyone knows any then, you know, tell me.



    EDIT: Oh yeah, nice site. I've taken an oath with myself that the next PC I get will be a Mac (just because I haven't used one before).

    No, the next PC you get will not be a Mac, it will be a PC, because a Mac isn't a PC.

    I knew that, just testing.

    They're both personal computers asstard


    >>Xcode

    It's kind of pathetic that I didn't find that online myself. Well, technically I did, but I meant from like a google search. Anywho, thanks

    I was waiting for your comment ;p.
    I meant it in the context of a PC being a windows/unix box, as it is often used in.

    OK, sorry about the plants. But which looks nicer, a picture of a tree, or a picture of source code? Besides, that's only my blog. Everything else about the website is programming. I'm not really a botanist. I just have a big yard.

    But I was just wondering what kind of programming articles you would want to see on there. That's all.

    I'd take a Binary Search Tree over a Fir Tree anyday.

    As for articles, I'd say I'd like to see more stuff related to the core of programming. In otherwords... if you look at more advanced programming, such as graphical stuff, mostly anything you'd want to do is already compact into a predefined function for you. I'd like to see how it's done from scratch. What do all the Windows API functions really do, what does OpenGL's glVertex3f() really do at the core.

    It interests me to see other people's progress...i like tryign to figure out how other programmers operate. i'm keeping a progress blog of what I've been working on in my small computer game.

    It is very difficult to produce article's and tutorials that are original and actually useful. I've seen a plethor of amateur websites that try to mirror nehe and gametutorials, and the amount of time that the author puts into their tutorials is probaby more time spent by others reading their material.

    So you mean instead of stupid tutorials, you would rather see an article on how to invert matrices ?
