This is the first "blog" of any kind I've ever had, so it's probably not the greatest...

Just a little snippet about me:

I'd like to consider myself relatively tech-savvy; obviously I use Linux (Arch to be precise; K.I.S.S. FTW), and I enjoy learning new things about computers in general (both software and hardware-related).

This blog is mostly just for whenever I feel like telling the world about my experiences with computers/Linux (or just life in general), or just posting for the hell of it.

A little "fractal" I discovered…

Updated 07-25-2011 at 04:56 AM by MrCode (tinypic dumped one of my images; replaced :D)

…while I was still learning the Windows API.

I was experimenting with (very slow) procedural image generation with SetPixel(), when I did something like this for each pixel in the image:

Code:
SetPixel(x,y,RGB((x ^ y) * (cr.right - cr.left) * 0.025,
                 (x ^ y) * (cr.right - cr.left) * 0.025,
                 (x & y) * (cr.right - cr.left) * 0.025));
…or something like that (I don't remember all the arguments...

How can you not get depressed after reading this sh*t?

How do these men stand to get up in the mornings?

I don't understand how one can essentially devote their life to proving that effectively, no one has any real "control" over their lives. It's sickening, to say the least.

(Yes, I know that's a horrible exaggeration, but try to understand where...

Okay, I'm just going to be frank this time…

I know this isn't really the best place to be looking for emotional help, but that isn't quite my goal…I'm just trying to find a place where I can get help.

BUT, there are a few problems with the usually recommended options:

My first (real) experimentation with SDL

Posted 04-20-2011 at 11:55 AM by MrCode
Updated 04-20-2011 at 03:00 PM by MrCode (stdlib.h include was unnecessary)

It's been a while since I've done any serious programming (if little demo/learning programs can be considered serious ), but I finally got around to doing some little SDL apps.

The code here is basically for learning purposes; it's not like I'm keeping hold of it with an iron grip…IOW, go ahead and use parts of it (or the whole of it) to learn from/use in your own programs/whatever. It's not like there's much here anyway.

The one whose source I'll...

I want to rant, but can't

Posted 04-02-2011 at 04:27 PM by MrCode

I just got done writing one of those "everything is predetermined/life is meaningless" posts...why isn't it up here, then? Because I know that nobody who even visits the LQ blog section regularly wants to see it anymore. I save them locally to my hard disk, though, just for some kind of weird posterity.

I guess the point is taken: if I want help with those issues, I'm gonna need to seek it from someplace other than the 'net...it's just that I've become way too...
