This post has been migrated from an old server & blog system. Some things may look strange, such as formatting. Some links and images may be broken. I will try getting around to fixing it ASAP.
Now that I am entering the final stretch of my first semester in Computer Programming & Analysis, it would seem that I actually have the time to make a blog post! Things have been quite busy but all I have left to do now is to finish coding my Sudoku puzzle generator (in C) and study for my final exams, school-wise. The middle part of this semester, as one could probably tell from the lack of posts, has kept me quite busy, and I'm adjusting to a quite different style of work than I am used to. No more long-winded essays! Oh, it feels quite good. What feels even better is that I really seem to enjoy programming. Granted, I have only been scratching the surface of C, as well as have dabbled my feet in a little bit of Python, but so far I seem to be grasping it all quite quickly.
The second project is to code a simple game in C, using the SDL library. Right now, I am just thinking something like Tetris or Blockbreaker, just to learn the basics. After I get that done, I would like to add an interesting gameplay element to the game that makes it different from vanilla Blockbreaker/Tetris. I've been doing some brainstorming, as well as reading the documentation for SDL, so hopefully I can get started on that once my exams are complete.
So that is my plan. If you were wondering, the post title refers to the fact that it has been exactly two months since my last post, and how the first line of said post has me promising the opposite will happen... oops! Well, I never stop trying so I will continue to attempt to blog about possibly-interesting things. Until then...
