Every programmer should know about Yoda conditions and Ninja comments! My favorite term:
The process of taking a well-designed piece of code and, through a series of small, reversible changes, making it completely unmaintainable by anyone except yourself.

Sometimes when I play a game, the screen goes dark and I see my own reflection in the monitor, and wonder what I’m doing with my life.
Then the next level starts. WOO!!!

Spent a few hours implementing the Bullet physics lib into 0x10c today. Works well, but it has the sinking into floors issue I hate.
Physics suck and nobody likes them and also they smell.

Free history lesson: Today is the national day of Sweden, so I guess something happened today many years ago. I don’t know what.

I would totally eat healthy food if it had any flavor.

Middle of night, very tired. Some kind of bird. You go away, bird, nobody cares, it’s four am.
Sorry for having been offline for such a long time – I’ve moved to a new flat, still waiting for my ISP to flip the switch. In the meantime, Schlogger invited me to participate in a comic collab with Ben, Anna, Jeff, Jojo, Jo Lott, Julia, Noody, Moritz, Pete, Hiller, Lisa and Reh! The topic: Things we used to believe back when we’re kids.
Maybe I should stop coding right now and stick to do this awesome multi-layer GIMP mouse-drawing stuff. Maybe.
Notch vs. Batman, Carmack vs. HMZ-T1.

OH from my lawyer: “of all the shit that rains down on me in a day, yours is the nice little turd that I am looking forward to.” Um. Yay.

I finally actually measured the latency on the HMZ-T1. It is 50 msec worse than a Z800. 50! I am deeply appalled.
I can send an IP packet to Europe faster than I can send a pixel to the screen. How f’d up is that?

When I grow up, I’m going to get myself one of those real jobs, with actual responsibility and all that stuff. It’s going to be great.

If you can’t decide something important, flip a coin. Your immediate reaction to the result will tell you what your innermost feelings are.

@notch However if your decision involves someone elses life or death be aware that #Batman will getcha.
Gamified game development! My favorite ones:
Equal Opportunist (10 points)
Write a class with public, private, protected and internal members. It’s all about scope.
Interrupting Cow (5 points)
Have 10 breakpoints in a file. Where’s that bug? Could here, could be there, could be anywhere.
UML God (5 points)
Create a UML Class Diagram 10 times. Code is for sissies. Models! Models! Models!
