School, finals, standardized tests, and college searching have all occupied my time up until a few weeks ago.
That isn’t to say that I’ve been completely idle since Ragdoll Animator. In January I’ve had a lot of fun making a rigid body physics engine. I got it working, implemented sliding friction and bounce preservation, and after that, I lacked motivation needed to clean it up for release.
More recently I’ve set up a new theme for bluethen.com. I chose MxS2 and made a few minor changes of my own. The old theme got really old for me, and seeing a few other blogs with the exact same theme made it seem banal.
So far visitors have called this current theme as “generic” but also minimalistic. I didn’t want the theme itself to distract from the content here. To me, “generic” fit that criteria pretty well. Some preferred the older theme over this one, and told me that it better fits the applets I make. What do you think?
In the future I’d like to clean up the physics engine and make something fun with it. I’d also like to experiment with some other algorithms (ray tracing, path finding, AI, oh my!), and hopefully write about my endeavors and discoveries. Stay tuned.
