@technomancy Yeah man, Deepness in the Sky was a *radical* opening. So many thoughts and so much action. Then it kinda teetered around. By the end I just sorta felt *helpless*. But honestly in a good way.
I never read the other story but I'd love to read more stories with some of these core concepts.

@technomancy *gasp* pardon me...

key takeaway and I'll delete the other toot:
Plenty of really interesting threads of thought and imagery in the books... but the sum total was sucky for me.
Lemme know how you like it at the end!

Kanova, the 3D sculpting program for desktop and VR from The Foundry is out on Steam and you can download it for free:

This is what I’ve been working on for over a year now and I’m very excited (and a bit scared) to see it out in the wild!

@vilya This is dream job material. So awesome!!! Congrats!

Been busy since my last visit!

We have SDL2 and PhysicsFS ported to the Nintendo Switch! If you have Switch access at developer.nintendo.com, hit me up for source code!

Also, I wrote a single-C-file, zlib-licensed OpenAL 1.1 implementation:

I build these things with support from my patrons, so if you like these things, throw in a few dollars!

Dear Unity users, is anyone aware of a msgpack-rpc implementation that is generally stable or at least usable? :D

@neon @jon_valdes If you made your own you may be able to lean on yoga for layout stuff.

Our Wakeful Hoodie kickstarter campaign is drawing to a close. You need new clothes? What a coincidence, we need more backers! #wakefulhoodie #colorful #wolf #animal #art #patterns kickstarter.com/projects/12472

@sinbad @akien ogre was ahead of it's time! In grad school I pushed to make it a standard feature of our lab hoping that might end up as a bit of side channel NSF funded development. The lab opted for an in-house framework tho.

These have been some programming thoughts. I really enjoy computer programming, it's a delight!!!

For those who need to Google like me :D

Pretty interesting stuff

@abyrd well done! That took guts!

@abyrd WOW did they steal something from you or for someone else? How long was the wait?

@khalladay What's the alternative for these cases? weak_ptr?

I never know when people are anti shared_ptr due to it's implementation or the broader pattern of a bit of reference counted data living in multiple lifetimes of a library/program.
