Sun, 11/12/2017 - 09:23

The Inlandia Institute is a lively center of literary activity serving the 29,000 sq. mile inland Southern California Region. It grew out of the highly acclaimed anthology Inlandia: A Literary Journey through California’s Inland Empire, published by Heyday Books in 2006 with the active participation of the Riverside Public Library.

Optimizing Wes Mantooth

Fri, 08/04/2017 - 22:13

The whole idea behind this project has never been to create games. It was really an exercise to optimize my Javascript abilities. Generally at work if I write Javascript it's using jQuery and due to time constraints it can often be quite ugly and not very efficient. 

So I built a list of tools I felt would be necessary for a game engine and currently they aren't exactly efficient or easy to use.

For example the multi-canvas example currently can run about 60 objects on screen before it starts to slow down. .. That's terrible.

Hobby Projects and Ideas

On my "down-time" as a hobby I write code. I know, that's a hell of a thing, but you have to remember that I started getting paid to do my hobby. But, my hobby is still my hobby. Part of the problem I have always had with my hobby versus my professional work is that I start a project...Then I will get bored with it and move on to something else OR I will get interested in some caveat of the current project which will derail me from the current project.

GIT Exhibition

 "Versioning" is a pretty neat idea. I am not sure of the history of Subversion or Mercurial. But I know that GIT came about because Linus Torvalds..."needed" a version tool. So he wrote one. I find myself doing that all the time.I have a ton of little tools I write for this and that. I don't post even a portion of them. Certainly not the one I use regularly. I enjoy Open Source, but there is something to be said about security.
