    Have you guys seen the new Visual Studio interface?



    But seriously... http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio...xperience.aspx
    I really like it, though it could do with a few more splashes of colour.

    Visual Studio is now 3DS Max.
    If Visual Studio is going to go with this Windows Phone look, why don't they change the out of place scrollbars and buttons as well?

    I'll be making good progress on a project, but of course then some issue like what I posted above will slap the fun out of my hands as if to tell me "NO, HOW DARE YOU ENJOY THIS" followed by 10 minutes or so of frustration trying to track down the issue only to find it was something stupidly easy to fix.

    I guess that happens when the genre is one of the oldest types of video game

    You mean... Previous programmers have already experienced all the bugs, so you don't have to?

    Just like the rest of the UI design Microsoft are doing for Windows 8 and so on. I know this will probably be passed off as "hurrr i hate change" but honestly I think it's a horrible, horrible UI. Call me what you will, but I haven't seen anything in Windows 8 that makes it worth the switchover, and I will be sticking with Windows 7 for a loooong time.

    I've been wondering this for a while. Why are OS devs always using QEmu instead of VirtualBox or VMWare?

    Better debugging. VirtualBox and VMWare aren't very useful debugging-wise.

    This is init.js's source code:

    Code:
    console.log("Hello world from JavaScript!");
    console.log("My bytecode is " + Kernel.modules["/kernel/init.jmg"].length + " bytes long");
    The reason it's panicing is because I'm trying to take the length of a string, which isn't implemented yet

    it's like we moved to fancy colors, transparency, rounded corners, reflections, blurs, shadows, and so on, and all of a sudden - whites, grays, and blacks, sharp corners, and ... yeah that's it

    The problem is that they're trying to unify Windows across the Desktop and Mobile platforms. A given UI might look and feel very nice on my phone but would be atrocious on my desktop. Microsoft needs to realize that phones are phones and PCs are PCs and stop trying to use the same theme for both.

    While working on a puu.sh crawler (unsure if I should GitHub it). I found out that puu.sh allows you to upload html pages. Probably not too big of an issue (in terms of accessing peoples puush.me accounts) seeing as it uses a different domain for uploads. Although it is still bad because now you can't really trust puu.sh links.

    Beckmann distribution for specularity is a little sexier than Blinn-Phong



    Specular only:


    equation for the interested




    Implementation for the bored:

    
    
                    double ale = acos(dotm(nnorm, t1));
    
                    double rough=0.1;
    
                    double spec_light=pow(M_E, -(tan(ale)*tan(ale))/(rough*rough))/(3.141592*rough*rough*cos(ale)*cos(ale)*cos(ale)*cos(ale));
    
                    double ambient_light=ambient;
    
                    double diffuse_light=drc*(dotm((nlight), nnorm));
    
                    double light=ambient_light + diffuse_light + spec_light;

    where t1 (normally referred to as H) is calculated per frame as:

    v3d t1=(nlight+ncamera)/((nlight+ncamera).magnitude());

    Edit:
    Are there code tags specifically for c++ here still?

    Got interrupts working, added an interface for JavaScript to 'listen' on certain interrupts:





    In this case, I've hooked a JS function up to interrupt 32, which happens to be IRQ 0 - the system timer.

    Merged in the SDL 2.0 branch. Thanks to Valgrind I noticed I was overflowing the stack with gigantic objects, plus I tracked down that I wasn't setting a variable and instead creating a variable with the same name in a constructor.

    Feels good to be back after an RSI attack.

    Also sorry for laughing at the Javascript OS, that's pretty neat.

    Which is fine. Its just you shouldn't serve the html uploads as html pages. That is just asking for abuse/exploitation.
