2019

Sadly I’ve almost completely forgotten about my blog this year. I need to get back into the habit of writing out my thoughts in a concise and presentable way. Anyway, here are some cool things you should check out. NTop – htop-clone for Windows. I wrote this back in 2017 but this year it suddenly…

Locked Out Of Twitter

UPDATE: the prophecy was fulfilled. I’m now on https://twitter.com/GianSass. They did it. The madman did it. On a Sunday evening I was casually glancing over my Twitter profile, making little adjustments. As my eyes jump to the birthdate section I noticed something off. I wasn’t born in 1998 was I? So of course my half-asleep me…

An Overview of the Entity-Component-System

Game programming traditionally revolved around the concept of inheritance, that is, game objects and entities inherit functionality, and become more specific in their functioning as the inheritance gets more complex. But this type of architecture has evolved to be, in most cases, inefficient. As the game matures, functionality becomes increasingly complicated, which often results to…

In this show, a player is given the choice between three doors. Behind one of these is a prize, a nice car, and the…

Watching TV Is A Thing Of The Past

Will Lord Gaben Forgive Thy Sins?

Dipolog Sunset

Figured out I should post these here since crappy apps like Instagram or Twitter don’t make them easy to download at full size. On my Philippines trip I took some amazing pictures with my Canon. Will definitely start taking more pictures in my life. Right now in Germany it’s snowing, far away from a another…

2016 and the Philippines

Happy New Year! Just wanted to share my view of 2016 and some of my vacation experiences. I spent some time with my family in the Philippines this Christmas. Lots of beaches, cool environment, and lots of food. Having celebrated Christmas and New Year without bad weather and snow felt pretty awkward, as it is normal…

A year err.. milestone

One year has passed since I blogged my first post, which was about physics. Looking forward now I will try to blog as often as I can. See you soon.
