I've realized that the only time I don't feel suicidial and dead is when I'm doing something.

OK, I've just programmed a simple 3D engine, it took me about 14 days (only programming from 10 AM to around 11 PM), with some breaks here and there, don't remember really. All days are like only one long day nowdays. Not sure what I should do know. I need something to do.

It's not possible to make a game on one person, and games are not my thing, to make the actual game is more about art and stuff like that than solving "real" problems.

I need a new project with a clear goal. I would like to do something with AI. Not sure what though.

It doesn't even have to be programming. The darknes is getting closer, I need a project. Life is about hiding death.

Need something to do now. Until then I'll try to make some more graphics programming.

Make an AI that can talk back to you in english, varying its responses base on mood what you last said give it emotional responses and teach it basic grammer, and us a library fo it to get words from... tha should keep you busy for a good while.

How about you make a maze with your 3d engine and program ai to solve the maze, and then move the camera along the solution path.

oh and make it capable of learning new words and using them!

Now I'm getting somewhere, I could use the MS speech SDK to get a real voice.

Anyway, I don't want to do something like MegaHAL, that's just boring. OK, I know what I need to do: I need tol read more about neural nets and similiar topics, it's time to learn that **** for real.

If you have any links, please share them!

You could always mow my lawn or wash my car. You'll have to pay the airfare, however :)

Hmm...Let's see. You should also make the AI program respond in a variety of languages. It might be hard, but you will get to keep yourself busy for years. Also, you can try deleting the engine, and try to reprogram it with improvements...

So, how is the financial situation? Got a job yet?

No job yet. And besides, if I had a job I wouldn't be able to program AI programs.

I'll try to get benefits from the socciety for being crazy, stupid, and socially incompetent. Hope it works, I'll call them on monday.
