Mushroom Camp 2006 Construction
Contains a image gallery of my 2006 mushroom camp construction.

It's Batty!
There was a small bat that kept comming back almost every day for the last week or so while I was at mushroom camp this year (2006). Twice it let me pick him up wrap him up in my summer shorts and put it inside my wood stove heated camp!
I even got video of me petting him!


I have been starting to dabble in XNA the last couple of days, and have posted the code for 3 example projects I created.

I have to say that I can read and under stand the C# language and have converted a number of C# projects over to vb.net in the past. Some were small some were large, but this is the first time I have actually written, C# code. I am a vb.net only developer. I have to say, it's an annoying language to write code in. Really annoying. Particularly with case sensitivity, and method calls that don't end with () brackets. If they wanted to create a easy to use platform for making games they should have used vb.net. I am certain first timers, non programmers people who see xna as a chance to get into programming for the first time would not have found the vb language syntax as annoying and finicky as C#.

But any way I am finding it much easier to write C# code then I had expected. But hopefully the XNA team makes good and releases a vb.net flavor of XNA game studio, for us vb'ers out there.

I have setup a page just for XNA here.

More work to come

Here I was thinking Thursday was my last day of work, Phff. Seems now that the people trying to buy the local sawmill that shut down have yet to come thru and pay people so it looks like I will be working streight thru til the 23 or 24 of december.

Anyway I was thinking I'd try to upload my images I took at mushroom camp this seasom. there are over 1500 to up load so, yeah. It could take some time. But first I want to find a better image gallery then what comes with DNN.

Wow it's been almost a month already since my last blog entry! I am still working, at my job. The local sawmill shutdown and I got hired on as a laborer pulling electrical wires and stripping them for the copper. The other day four of us stripped over 11,000 pounds of copper wire, in one day! Which earned out boss about $22,000 CAD dollars. But it looks like this Thursday is going to be my last day working there, so I should have more free time to do things like make blog posts!

Anyway I have been starting to play around with the Axiom Rendering Engine again these last few days, and it seems to be going good so far. I am actually finding that I can get the engine to work fairly easily as compared to my previous attempts at trying to get it to work. I am also thinking I might start posting some content on the Axiom wiki whne I find the time as it seems to be in need of user submissions.
