Website may be up and down over next few months. I'm currently doing a complete overhaul of everything. Going back to simple individual .htm pages, new overall site theme, sanitizing and cleaning up html of all pages and blog posts, attempting to implement a new tooling and publishing system etc etc.

Up and down Thornhill Mountian

Published 4/25/2005 by createdbyx in News

Well I took my trip up the mountain the other day. I have uploaded some of the pics I took from on high ...Thornhill Mountain Pics I made it to the top in about 3 hours (8 hour round trip) and there was still 4 feet of snow up there. Should have brough some ski's for the way back down.

I know, I know. Crappy low res cmos images. But hay it's all I got right now. I am thinking about saving up some money an getting a Sony DVD camcorder, with built in still picture functionality, but with all the extra necessary equipment a person would need for it I think +-$2000 is a little much. Especially when I can practically buy a decent new computer system for that price. I'm just concerned that if I buy one that, by the time I get around to actually getting some use out of it it will have become out of date hardware.

I am still plugging away at my DX9Tools (release 6) library. I am thinking I am going to make a release soon regardless weather or not, it is 100% complete. It's taking too long to release it and I may be heading out of province in a few weeks for work, so I will be sure to release it before then. It's working as it is now, but it does not contain any XML comments, and the code could use some clean up and more testing. As always I am developing my DX9Tools tester app along site the library to test out functionality as I develop it.

I am struggling right now, and trying to decide to turn the library into a DX API wrapper or try and turn it into a half breed graphics engine. (Not quite a game engine library but more then just a API wrapper) I am also considering changing the name to something more distinct then DX9Tools.

I have also added a new picture gallery called Mics Pics. And I have updated the Links page and added 2 sub categories under it called Content Sites and Free Software.
