Hey. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any math-intensive apps, and I was starting to get a little nervous about “losing my touch”. Not to mention, all I’ve worked on for the past several months is Chase, and the last thing I want is for me to get bored of it. So I something different, and programmed a real quick application of some random effect. I like rotating things in isometric space (who doesn’t?), and always thought that it’d be neat to do some sort of depth-of-view thing, so I threw this together.
I’ll probably release the source tomorrow (assuming I have time), after optimizing and making it a bit easier to read. Don’t forget that I have other apps you can watch and get briefly entertained by here, if you’re ever bored.

It’s been over a month since my last post. I apologize for the lack of updates. I truly wish I could keep up with Chase at the moment, but I’ve been getting some other things done lately. For a month I’ve been training to get into track. My primary reason for training is for health though. I find that running for 3 miles can have the same effect on me as a cup of coffee, except longer lasting. This, hopefully, will help me productivity-wise in the long run. I have been getting into the habit of running a mile before school on week days, which hopefully will keep me in top conditions.
Not much has happened on Chase, or any other of my projects. I re-organized some of the files in Chase, and made some progress in the Scene classes. I also started on a data importer and exporter (a function that can save and load models and other junk). I’ll likely not get much done on Chase in the next week or so due to some after-school classes I’m taking, and me training for the last week before track starts. But after that, I’ll hopefully be able to get a good pace going, and start making progress again.
