I was surprised to see one of my company-mates in the news today.
Damnit, he's smart.

Programming programming programming.

Using a combination of Ruby with RUDL, I've been trying to develop a simple GUI. My first goal is to display a window that can be dragged around the screen. Other interface elements include buttons and a text field.

I also have some idea for a simulation game, but still not sure where to start. That's why I bought the Pragmatic Programmer book, maybe it will give me some wisdom to begin with.

Damn, this place has become abandoned, even more than my usual tardy standards. I've been on some army courses lately, but that's just an excuse... I simply haven't got any energy to write, and even my own programming projects have fallen by the wayside. Over the weekends I've been playing a lot of games, to recharge my batteries. Now that the course is coming to an end, I have yet another one coming up! This time it's only a two-week engineer course, hopefully it's a bit more relaxed.

I brought a whole bunch of music cds to camp this month, and I've finished listening to most of them. The ones I like the most are by the Flaming Lips. I have 3 of their albums and they all rock. Among my other favourites are the White Stripes and Badly Drawn Boy. The CD I'm listening to right now is Bodily Functions by Matthew Herbert, and it is good.
