Journal: Reading more 1

Journal by krs-one
I have read a lot more now about game programming now. I really want to understand how everything works. Does anyone have a good book or website (other than nehe.gamedev.net) to learn about OpenGL game programming?

If so, thanks!

Journal: Got msengine.com up

Journal by krs-one
I finally got my site, www.msengine.com, up and working. I would really like to see it take off. I installed Postnuke on it for the news service, and I really like it. I would have installed Slash, but its not made for smaller sites, as Postnuke is, and my host company said that they would not install mod_perl or install the proper modules. Oh well, I'll live.

Hrm, what else. Everything is going well for the engine. I decided to take an actual break on the coding and just read book upon book about game engine design. I want to buy so many books, but money is a huge factor, especially in computer books, and plus I need to get a car. *note to self, buy a car*

maelstrom will be so cool once I finally have something to show for it. I know that I am not known to finish projects, and that is a major flaw of mine, but I am aiming to correct it with this. Which brings me to my question, is computer science what I really want to do? I see badass programmers all over the world and yearn to be like them, but when I fail, it really takes a toll on myself. I know I possess the intelligence to do so, as I have finished and made some pretty cool little hacks, but nothing huge.

Oh well, we'll see what the future brings.

I'm out for now.

The degree of technical confidence is inversely proportional to the level of management.
