    Some Afterthoughts

    I finished my game over a day ago. I expected the event to be over then too. But it certainly is not! There are still 200 people hanging out in irc! I very much like the social aspect of this event, so I’m trying to participate in that a bit more. I’ve uploaded a timelapse of me developing my game, “Who let the robots out?”

    I also helped some kind fellow port his game to Windows, which is something I’ve never done before. It’s always been the other way around for me, porting Windows applications to Linux. Can you believe that Mingw doesn’t implement all of the standard library? Some functions, in particular drand48, are completely missing! Perhaps this was just an oversight?

    Getting back into the swing of things has been pretty difficult. I had a hard time sleeping during the competition, and briefly broke my polyphasic sleep schedule since I was too excited to nap. And it doesn’t help that tennis just started today and I had to do an hour long run. I also look back onto the project I was working on up to the competition, and think “there’s no way I can go back to the normal, slow-paced programming I normally do. But if I write sloppy code on such a big project, I’m screwed”!
