Bit silly, but I’m happy :D

Yay!

Bought the car with 4650 miles on the dash. >15K miles later and still going strong. Still over 50% on front brake  pads (I do find this a bit odd, but hey) 😀

Squeaky clean – almost

[important]TL;DR: Rendering refactored for OGL3.x clean context. Lots of bugs. Takes time. New Revision soon.[/important] The new revision is getting harder and harder to commit the more I try to clean the code. What cleaning am I talking about?

May Update and Current Development path

After pushing a few revisions to the trunk since I got to the UK, I really started working on my dissertation project. But one thing led to another and now, updating the SVN will be postponed for a few more days. Revision 149 also presented a small bug that causes performance to slow down to …
