Finally, my price from the Beyond3D/ATI shader competition has arrived. A new shiny Radeon 9800pro.
Not an extremely large upgrade from a Radeon 9700pro, but a 10-15% speedup in pretty much everything never hurts.

Water demo updated

The water demo has been updated to allow the user to create waves with the mouse, and an option to turn the auto-dripping off.

New demo
Thursday, November 20, 2003 | Permalink

A new demo arrives. Some cool water action.

The framework has seen some major changes under the surface too. I have added a console, which can be opened with the tab key by default. The console can't do a whole lot right now though, but you can at least set and get the viewer position and angles, and set the speed. I'll get more functionality into it. I've also brought the OpenGL side of things up to date, except I haven't implemented render targets in OpenGL yet. Hoping to see the famous über_buffers arrive soon.

Beyond3D/ATI shader competition
Wednesday, November 5, 2003 | Permalink

The Beyond3D/ATI shader competition has finally presented its winners. My contribution (a roller coaster demo) got a runner up position, which means I'll get to replace my 9700 with a 9800 in the not too distant future.

My demo is now available on the 3D page.

Server up again

The server is up again after some downtime. No idea why it went down, but it sure ran fine for a long time, closing in on a full year uptime. Linux sure is a stable OS.

The ShaderX II book is making its way out to the stores now. Got my personal copies not too long ago. Lots of cool stuff in there. Haven't had to time to read much of it yet, but I sure will when I get more time. Be sure to get yourself a copy. And don't forget to read my articles.

Well, the ShaderX 2 project hardly finished before the ShaderX 3 project was started. Can't promise anything yet, but I'm considering contributing there too.

A new Music section
Wednesday, October 22, 2003 | Permalink

As you may have noticed there's a new item on the menu to the left. It's pointing the new Music section I have just created. Being bored the other day I figured it would be cool to publish some music on my site. After all, I do play the piano and it has been a hobby since long ago. I'm not the world's greatest piano player, but at least good enough to justify that I put up a few songs on my own site.
I recorded these tunes played on a keyboard. I really wish I owned a grand piano though; sounds better and responds better, but I suppose this is good enough for the less fastidious.

Please tell me what you think (and be honest )
