More nothing

I tried to program in Java. I didn't quite like it. Sure, it has a few good features: no header files, good standard libraries, good documentation and no pointer hassle (although I like pointers, so is this a good thing...?), but also many - too many, I'm afraid - features - and lack of features - I did not like: no good for each loop, no operator overloading, no default parameters, no unsigned integers... But the thing I disliked the most was this:
Code

final public ClassWithTooLongAName extends AnotherClassWithTooLongAName implements InterfacesShouldAlsoHaveTooLongNames {
    static final private VariableTypeWithSurpriseSurpriseTooLongAName atLeastThisVariableItselfHasAShortName;
}

Java is a good language if you had bought a new keyboard and want to type more than anything else.

Other things: I released The Adventures of Mad Mad Maniac in Game Jolt and itch.io, and no one is playing it, and that's a good thing. I never tried to advertise it, the game is bad - intentionally, though - and I only made it to have fun.

Now I'm building yet another OpenGL game engine, but this time my goal is add also a good 2D support. I'm using glfw since I used SDL in my previous project (what a good reason not to use it in this project). It's nice to notice how much my code quality has increased since Operation Fungus.

Mathematics still mostly suck. Why? If I don't understand something, it automatically sucks. Yes, that's a rational way to think. Shut up.

I'm currently reading the ninth book in Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time. That man sure loves slow story telling!

I was running a few days ago and I saw a weird rock. It was eating grass. The next day I saw the same rock, and it was eating grass again! A few days later I saw two grass-eating rocks. They were either the second weirdest rocks I have ever seen or just ordinary rabbits.

A few nights ago I had a dream where my friend forced me to watch some weird Moomin videos. There was a door and a granny behind it, and I wasn't supposed to open the door too much, but I accidentally did, and the old lady forced me to spend a night with her. I got scared and killed the lady with scissors. Then I hid the knife (!) in sauna. Fortunately I wasn't me any longer, but some random dude of some random nonexistent TV show or book.

EDIT:

Also, still playing Overwatch. Currently in level 193. I don't have so much time to play that game any longer. Sad.


I think the paragraphs in this blog are best read in reverse.

And that dream is just so damn Finnish haha ^^ what is your view of aged women btw? Is it true that competitive horse riding without horse is "in" in Finland right now?

After having used Prolog I really kind of can't complain about any other language.

Well, except VBscript. Fuck VBscript.

I was pretty sure Prolog was just another esoteric programming language, but it's not. Spooky.
