Flicks – For Phony Fractals – Gradient testing

For some time, I’ve wanted to make a fractal generator… but have more control over how the fractals are drawn and control that is less confusing than most fractal programs make it. Also, rendering fractals is very time consuming since fractals are point clouds. Those reasons are why people don’t use them for what I’d like to do: making 3D maps (for game worlds and such). My recent CS ventures now include writing a software (called “Flicks” for now) that applies transforms to a set of points (which I will use as vertices for models – after I figure out how to optimally connect them). In this way, I can generate interesting (but controlled-shape) 3D worlds without slowing down my machine to generate a point cloud.

Match Word resource blog – Giving you the idea rather than the translation

Ever wanted to study a language in the manner that Rosetta Stone would allow you? Yeah, same here but I don’t have 100+ bucks to shell out.

You could try to assemble deck after deck of Anki cards and even give them pictures, but setting up the ideal deck can take a long time, especially when you’re downloading images and trying to fit them in all the time. This is my solution: a blog. Now I have all of the resources of the internet at my fingertips and I can share everything with you.
