Wow. I can’t believe it’s already been almost a month since my last post. I really didn’t mean for it to be so long. My new job has really kept me busy over the last month and a half.

I’m still learning the ropes and reading more books. I’m working on a small, practice Flash game (similar to Tetris), mostly for learning better collision detection and multi-collision detection. I’ve been procrastinating for the last week with it, though. I need to get back on track.

You’d think that making a Tetris-like game would be simple and easy… en toto, it is, it’s coming up with a, what I’ve termed, slot-collision detection scheme. i.e. How to tell when two pieces with very different shapes “notch” together. Coming up with a way to do it hasn’t been my problem, it’s deciding on which one to use and to allow me to expand up later on that’s the problem.

To any of my fellow Kansas Citians, pray for clear skies, I’m tired of this overcast. 🙂
