    What are your current project(s)?

    Provided that it's not confidential or you don't want to reveal much about them, what your current project(s)?

    My main project at the moment is a game, a remake of "The Supernatural Olympics". My previous release was limited due to the program I used to build it with having many limitations. The remake is doing it entirely in C. It's a 2D game at its heart, but is designed to look and feel very 3D-like due to taking parallax scrolling to the extreme. This is my latest screenshot of the scenery from about 3500 feet above ground (you can get much, much higher than this). The "gap" is where lakes and forests are going to be. Here's the details about the project as a whole (it's in development, so these are likely to change. I'm hovering near 3/8 completion overall (based on time spent at it over the expected time), most of which with the scenery.

    A project I have for the future is a 2D RPG game, but almost all of it's details are classified. George Game 13 is likely my first main 3D project I'll be going at with my 3D RPG game after it.

    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Consulting for a company that develops software for nuclear power plants. Needed to change the app to be able to be used in multi database environments (oracle + mssql + access).

    Next will be a project with 30 consultants dealing with the state gov't, they won't tell me what it actually is.

    My current project is trying to have my cozy bookstore business survive in a country that doesn't like to read.

    oh... and I'm also trying to develop a scalable play by email wargame.

    Whenever my homework projects don't get in the way (which btw are only worth 1&#37; each -_-) I'm doing some wxWidgets programming with wxFormBuilder and Codeblocks. Right now I only have the reference manual to guide me until I get the official book, but I'm learning as I go. I've managed to replicate my homework assignments (which use windows forms and C#) in wxWidgets in C++. Hopefully when school is over I can get back into openGL programming because I was doing quite a bit of that before this semester kicked in. My school schedule stinks.

    I'm currently developing a new, more modern "Hello World!" program. It's beta, right now, but I'll be hiring testers shortly.

    This company that I'm consulting sells software to power plants all over the world.

    Be afraid, very very afraid.

    The changes I made were large in scope but minimal in the impact to the actual pp control.

    Don't laugh at me, but my group in university just submitted this tentative proposal for our operating systems related project:
    To develop a cross platform shell in Java. It will include basic arithmetic support, with additional commands based on the Java programming language. The shell will be command line based, but include some graphical utilities, e.g., tabbed shell windows.

    Could you tell me what towns I should be avoi... err... that you develop for?
    Come over to Singapore. We do not have a nuclear power plant.

    ... or so the government tells us.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    The problem with Java is not the language; It's a beautiful language. It's instead its programmers insisting on doing things they shouldn't.

    But seriously now, does seem like an interesting project... for C/C++. Ahaha! Ok, I'll stop laughing now
