    wow

    I feel proud of myself today...

    I was working on my broken computer (yet again) trying to get Windows up and running, and I got tired of it...so I went into my closet and got out an old book on C that I got from my old computer science teacher and just flipped to the graphics section to see what kind of ancient graphics code it had.

    Well, it happened to have quite a lot of assembly interrupts and definitions of what certain registers had to be to do certain things when those interrupts were called, so I was like, cool.

    So I just made my way write into DOS's nice little debug program and started doing some assembly programming, because it has been about a month since I have done any and I felt like doing some more.

    I was so proud of myself...I managed to initialize 13h mode and display the entire palette in using just assembly and the debug program....

    Meanwhile I am ready to throw that computer out the window if Windows doesnt start working...

    By the way, I have updated my site. Go check it out. I still need to get my OpenGL walkaround uploaded to it though, but I cant figure out what it causing this one runtime error...
