god i hate when my computer freezes
I re-recorded the vocals of this song with my new Shure SM-7B!
Be brutal with your music. Don’t be afraid to change or remove an element from your track, even if it took you hours to make it. If it does not work, it does not work.
most of the time i’m too brutal with my music. if something does not work i end up deleting almost everything and of course it sounds worse and then i ragequit out of my DAW and get a beer to cheer me up.
… can’t wait to see the new stuff
This annoys me for so many reasons I have to reblog it and outline three of them (lists of three are a powerful literary device).
1: World of Warcraft does not require you to “point and click, click, click, click, click…” unless you’re a goddamn idiot who uses the mouse to cast spells or thinks that clicking an enemy multiple times will somehow speed up your auto-attack.
2: Professor Layton should be on the ‘puzzle’ branch, and Katamari Damacy really shouldn’t be on either the ‘puzzle’ branch nor the ‘need for a storyline’ branch.
3: Why in god’s name did someone decide to split a flowchart into 10 separate images?
And don’t even get me started on how many games are in the wrong branch of the very first question.
It’s just a bit of fun, but I’d say you’re right.
and where is starcraft?
The Title brings it to the point. I am thinking about starting a programming blog. The question is: Do it or leave it? Would blogging be a thing for me?
By “Programming Blog” I mean posting articles I wrote. At the length of this post or even more. Code fragments and explanations.
I’ll explain my worries in this post. Actually I hope for my readers to choose my path. But since I am the majority of my readers, hoping for this will not yield results.
What if I just do it?
My writing would speak to programmers with experiance in C++. This is the language I like and use most. As I stated, I read my stuff the most, I programm C++. So I write about stuff I like. Resistance is futile!
What will I talk about?
I will write about things I learned and private projects. Sadly projects are sometimes left unfinished. This happens when I find a new project. Therefore the content won’t stop, only the topics change. Also there will be different bugs or decisions in every project. So switching projects brings variety.
Currently I work on two projects. One is a virtual CPU with some VM and tools around it. The other is a RTS game written in the D programming language. There’s not much to say about it yet, but I hope it will grow. And well, I read some others blogs. Some contain usefull techniques and techniques. I’ll probably also write about them.
Why should I start blogging?
The stuff I write about is not forgotten a week later. It can be recovered by reading my post. I have to rethink the idears when writing the post, leading to a clearer understanding. This also solves the “Somewhere I’ve already seen this”-problem. I just need to check my blog. This helps me with my private projects.
Commenters can be a valuable source of information. I am not perfect and make mistakes. You might have a better solution to a problem I’m discussing. If you tell everyone about it, I look like a fool and you’re the king! This would be awesome (for you)! Other readers and I can learn from you if your comment is not the “Your mum ducks sicks!” - cathegory.
Finally, my knowledge could help you and others. Reading different explanations is important for some of us. I would be happy if I can help just one person with the content I provide.
Why shouldn’t I do blogging?
I don’t think I can tell the world anything NEW. There is so much information on the internet. The chance that I encounter a problem that no one else had is small. Redundant information is not what I like most.
Speaking of other bloggers: they are better. They are longer in the software development business than me. I started programming professionally in 2009. That is 4 years ago. Obviously I’m no comparison.
I have already mentioned, that I drop projects. There is this thing, when you know that your project is dead. You just don’t want to admit it. You liked working on it but you didn’t for quite some time. Other stuff was in the way or [insert excuse here]. I hate this, but it keeps happening.
You have already noticed it, but I am not a good writer. English is not even my native language. So I don’t think I can keep up with other bloggers.
Writing stuff takes a lot of time. I have a full-time job and don’t want to exchange it with blogging. Actually this is just a excuse. Imagine me talking about how other stuff with obviously higher priority.
This blogging projects brings several aspects. There are good things and there are bad things. I think the only valid option is clear. I have to try. The next question in my mind is, if this place is right for this kind of blog.
By the way: I think I never mentioned myself so often in any other writing before.
some rave? here you go!
