Back on it After a Long Day
What a day. It’s 22:31 and I can hardly believe it. I probably have about another half hour left in me, then it’s bed time and start the day all over again. We went to one of the neighborhoods for a fair, it ended up not being all that great, but it was a beautiful day. I had to take the kids home, to feed and put them to bed. We had a visit from our rock-star cousin, Christopher Comrie, and later on we babysat London, so her parents could go watch a movie.
I’m back on page 20 – variables. This part of the chapter is dealing with calculations, enumerators, etc. I finished chapter one and realized it might take me two weeks to complete a chapter, instead of one.
Chapter two has my interest because it looks like he’ll talk about the “game loop”. When I took programming, back in college, I recall thinking about how these functions worked together. You can only have one main function and I thought about how what happens after the game finishes or after you “save and quit”. I came up with the term “game loop” – not knowing it was already a term. It’s pretty obvious that’s what it’d be called, but I’m happy I was able to figure it out – before someone told me.
