Oct 31, 2005 : teaser and programmathon review, or, asynchronous blogging

thumbnail: route of trip out west First, a teaser! That's the route I took on my road trip out west this summer; each night's location is marked. I've been meaning for a very long time to blog about this. And perhaps this map will serve as motivation for me to do so fully.

Second, this weekend I did a 48 hour programmathon with a few friends. 9am Fri - 9am Sun, +1 hr for DST. I joined around 4pm, coding commenced around 5pm, we worked till 4am, slept till 10am, coded till 4am, slept till 8:30 and coded till 9:30. So about 30 hours of coding if my math is right. Most time was spent on getting jmonkeyengine (darn quaternions!) to work, and figuring out how to do trig again. It would be nice to start with a base (like our current game) if we do it again. By the end we got a reasonably playable asteroids game. We didn't spend time on packaging for distribution/download, so you can't see it now. Perhaps someday.. yeah right :-)
