Birth year page post.

C++ is awesome.

I'm loving being able to have an iOs app running at ~60fps without having to get a Mac or deal with CS5's limitations.

I can't imagine anyone even trying to use that packager these days :P

I still use Xcode though I work with Objective-C++ mm using as little Objective-C as possible but still having it there to add cocoa touch elements if I feel so inclined. Though I'm pretty much a novice in the field I can say that iOS games written in straight Objective-C are MUCH slower, doing some tests to learn my way around the language I frequently found myself dumbing down things to run near 60fps. Despite their many qualities I still prefer C# to both! maybe when I get around to using C++ properly my opinion will change.

If only I had a 360, that'd be fun

I tried messing with it just to have something running on my iPod, best i was able to get was 24fps with a couple of animated objects.

So far I found myself liking the differences in syntax when I use C++ compared to C#/Java. Its kinda fun. I like working in C# better right now.
Then again I've only been using C++ for a few days so I might change my mind later.

That would be pretty fun.

ROBOTICS
I'm a programmer for my robotics team and I have to say it's pretty awful. National Instruments sponsors FIRST, the competition we compete in, meaning we have to use their shitty software called LabView which makes everything pretty much impossible, including basic math operations and debugging. It really isn't even programming--it's just dragging and connecting pictures.

Plus, I basically spent the last few days trying to debug my line following "code" and today we found out it's a mechanical problem--one they can't fix without buying new parts which, of course, they won't do, meaning that my work over the last few weeks has been for nothing.

So yeah, it's awful. They should just let us use C++ or Java like in previous years.

Screenshot of the default linetracking "code". Mine was a lot more complex but LabView, in its own foolishness, deleted my "code" and now I need to rewrite everything.

LOL, not that robotics is a waste of time or anything, but it is :P or at least, it is at the level you're doing it at, my Dad did robotics in upper sixth and minored it in uni before he became a sellout he said it was still pretty crap until his last year.

You still got some skills practiced maybe, unless you aren't exaggerating about how bad this program is. That's the way I try to look at it after raging about some small stupid bug.

Yeah I also have to use LabView for robotics, and it is ass. Fortunately I'm also doing some electrical and mechanical so I am picking some things up.
