How'd that happen?

You know how people often ask on birthdays if the person having the birthday feels any different than they did the day before? Usually I don't, but this time I do. Flipping over the second digit seems impactful. That, and the fact I'm not a teenager anymore. :paranoid:

Birthday was pretty good. Got an Oculus Rift. It's pretty cool, although very nauseating and the DK2 isn't particularly hypeworthy. Unless you're a developer it's really worth waiting until the CV1.

Somehow I got a really blurry picture of me wearing it. Whoo.

I haven't been posting here a whole lot, but I've been really busy lately.

Broke the world record for computing digits of e (the math constant) about a month ago. Largest instance of the number in the world is currently sitting in my computer. Been messing around with C in the hopes of building a better program for computing it. The program I used (y-cruncher) can only run on one machine at a time, and I'd like to be able to harness multiple machines to split up the workload and tackle larger and larger instances of the number.

Also, I've been starting up a free software project, 6Engine. I've been frustrated with Mojang's behavior over the last year or two, so I'm trying to create an alternative to Minecraft. The primary project goals are to create an engine that on the surface resembles Minecraft, but utilizes cubic chunks, has a more efficient renderer, and a plugin API from the start. It will also have VR support, and a deferred shader pipeline, which means the engine itself will support SUSE-style shaders without modding.

Hi there. :wave:

I come from New Hampshire, U.S. I'm sort of near Boston, but not that close. Just close enough to have the lovely accent. :heart:

I'm currently enrolled in a community college right now, but am possibly going to transfer to a 4-year college eventually.

I'm currently working on a TSP solver, a gravitational pull calculator, and block engine called 6Engine that's suspiciously similar to Minecraft.
