    Default Brag About or Show Off Your Programming Prowess

    Xander's thread had me curious about who the best programmer posting to MBTIc is (yes I know "best" is subjective, and often arbitrary. Still, time for the geeks to go all Mike Fink/Davie Crocket).

    So go ahead, programmers...tell/show us how good you are at this most purely logical of practical art-forms.

    The person who wins this thread will be either the one best at programming and/or the one best at bragging (about being the best programmer). (If I were a betting man, I would bet on Martoon winning this thread. Not sure how he would do it.)

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I am trying to program a little 3D game at the moment, using the Irrlicht SDK programmed in cpp . It was written in CodeBlocks and compiled with the GNU Compiler.

    I have included some of the source code + a setup.exe. It is just al little Engine demo, where you can move around via "WASD".

    To start the game, you need to select OpenGL Renderer, Direct3D is not compiled into the program, yet.

    It basically builds the world out of a scene file I created with Blender 3D and exported. It has basic collision detection, yet that works via triangle selecting and making this meshes solid.

    I am working on an advanced Physics engine at the moment, so that the actor can use guns and shoot at objects . Getting aquianted with the Newton Dynamics SDK for that at the moment.

    I, um, bow down to entropie's mastery of the art

    The coolest thing I've written is a backdoor program for Linux systems which locks all its pages in RAM, runs with realtime priority and gives you a (basic-cleartext-transmitted-password-security-protected) custom shell prompt on the system with its own rudimentary command language

    I thought it was a cool app. Saved us a few times from having to call our datacenter to reboot a misbehaving server.

    .
    Do we need a "scenes/" directory with the install or at least a "game.irr" file for the demo to work? The setup didn't seem to install those.

    People assume I'm some sort of programming genius because I run Linux on my laptop. It's not true people! I'm just soul crushingly lonely.
    I'm doing science and I'm still alive

    No, it's all in core.pk3, it opens the pk3 fake-zip from script. The code I sent along with the package is slightly different, than the programs code. Program opens the core.pk3, where the scene files are in.

    Do not know why it doesnt work, then again it is all highly in an eperimental state

    Question --Sidenote

    Am I the only one turned on by those who speak fluent nerdish or geeks of any variety?

    But I digress. I'm afraid my greatest technical feats consist of defragging, troubleshooting my sound card, and cleaning out my keyboard with compressed air. Learning programming may be stillborn for me. However, my s.o. (an INFP) speaks fluent computer program-ese and he may learn me a thing or two yet.

    Virtually no progress is not to be pooh-poohed in the face of absolutely no progress.

    There seems to be a breed of NFs who are turned on by geekery speekz, even if they don't quite understand it. A few ladies (already paired off, unfortunately) in my local group are like that. Yes we do worship your kind

    NOPE!!! :-)))) I love it, too!!!

    Platonic Example: When my grandfather took the time to explain all the components of a computer and intricate details of technical things, I loved it!!! I also loved it when he talked about his new, crazy inventions. And what a source he was: not only was he a brilliant man who had worked for a famous organization, but he was also a man with a huge heart - like a cuddly bear.

    Regarding romantic relationships:

    I mean, okay, we have a lot of differences, these NT folk and I, but we also have a lot of similarities. I like to see it as "complementary." Never had a SO who was like that, though, so I cannot say. Lots of friends though!!!!

    Anyway, I love "nerds" (whatever that means!!!) who are into the humanities or social sciences!!! (Like my husband) Now that's something I cannot resist. In high school and college, I was always attracted by the intelligent folk, and the ambitious/nerdy guys. Mehehehehehehheheheehhehe. <gets all giggly>

    Okay, carry on....

    I am currently working on a defrinting program to help out with various graphics packages. With any luck I just need to collaborate the data kilnots I have so far into some sort of mega-ilotbase then a bit of de-bugging, possibly some refragmenting (and maybe a whole load of lichnen sorting if it goes wrong and it should be complete and functioning
