Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Besides this though, I've been downloading a lot of files via IRC and BitTorrent, working at the movies, and playing with my new phone -- the Motorola v400. I really need to get a data cable for it, so I can install a few applications that does not come with it... such as AIM, and a few games that I miss from my old Samsung phones (x105, e105). I also bought that nice Nyco Airflow mouse. It's really comfortable.
I purchased King of Fighters 98 today for Playstation. I was amazed that I found it brand new -- I've been playing it a good bit. I just reinstalled Icewind Dale also, so I want to get back into that.
Walden Books is awesome. They had the very first manga of Love Hina and BOTH Mega Tokyos. I was surprised.
My Apache webserver is still running great, and I'm getting more traffic than ever on my website... especially since I've reaffiliated with Jinx. Check it out!
Hmm. I guess that's all for now. If you want more updates about me and my life, be sure to check out my blog.
Hopefully I'll get done within the next few months so I can begin working on some software -- preferably for Linux.
For more information about the game engine I am writing, read my last journal post.
Attack Points - Decreases everytime you select a move to fight; increases everytime you win a battle.
Travel Points - Decreases everytime you travel from one area to another; increases when you purchase more, or win certain kinds of tournaments/fights/etc
Currency - Decreases once you purchase things; increases once you sell items.
I don't really know what I want to do with it once I finish it off in Python. I was thinking of going back with some C++, but I'm not too sure how flexible those two languages are together. I've read up on some Jython, and saw how flexible the two would be together, but I don't really know that much Java, and plus, it's not open source. Maybe Sun will take IBM's advice in the future though...
As far as the game is concerned; I'm planning to take it beyond the text-based level in the future with some OpenGL programming. I'm just going to have to spend a lot of time getting that skill down though. Hopefully the game will turn out good in the long run. And besides, it's open-source; so I'm sure the rest of the world can lend a little help here and there...
Everything has been going great in my life right now. I have a lovely girlfriend, my game that I am currently programming is going great, and school life is just top notch. Sorry if it seems like I am bragging, but I just felt the world had a right to know that I'm not just another dark-demonic hacker. There are actually brighter ones out there, you just have to know where to look.
I don't really know if I can fall into the category of a whitehat, blackhat, or gray hat... since I seem to bounce around from each. I won't say much more than that, but hacking is my life. It is my life style. It is who I am.
