Red Trees On Narrabundah Hills

Aside from my usual Anime/Netflix binge, I have been spending a lot of time outside of work this week on my photography, albeit mostly away from the shutter button.

A Novice’s Thoughts On Photography & The Fujifilm X-T1

This is a post of my thoughts on the Fujifilm X-T1 camera and my photography journey as a photography novice . It is not exactly a review but if you are new to photography like me and are considering buying into the Fujifilm camera systems, especially the X-T1 then perhaps this could provide you with some insight. No promise!

With work already started on my first game project, I’ve came up with a name for my own “studio” and registered a new domain with new hosting. The game will be a remake of the old Stick Soldiers franchise, with new features coming later(more posts on this in the future). Stick Soldiers 2 was never completed, and Stick Soldiers 3 was also abandoned. I liked the game enough that I think I should try bringing it back.

The DDNS on my Synology NAS has been causing me a lot of grief lately so I’ve also moved my personal website along with my little brother Kevin’s little website onto the new domain. I will probably keep it around for site development and update testing.

There isn’t much content as for now, but stay tuned!

At last, links to the new and old sites:

Bye now.

My dedication for the next two or few years.

It was funny when I’ve finally decided that I wanted to become a programmer, a software developer. The builder of something that is the glue of all trades in this digital world. It all seemed so long a go.

Being a programmer, fundamentally meant one thing. To speak one or multiple languages that are at the end of the day, just a bucket load of 1’s and 0’s. Not only that, but to express ideas freely and creatively using those languages. To cultivate innovations and revolutions. Kind of like a poet and his poems, except with programming languages.

I wasn’t sure which one to start with. Where to take my first step and dip my foot in without drowning and be forced to retreat like a coward. With the massive variety programming languages out there, I did not want to learn or know them all. It was clear that the mastery of one is better than minimal knowledge of a couple. I also desired the highest performance and the best flexibility without losing fine grain control and power. With the general trend shifting favour to scripting, dynamic languages and producing web applications instead of native ones. It seemed like lower level programming languages will soon become what some might call a forgotten art to the majority of the “developer” community. Especially with the ever decreasing difficulty in application development with the newer high level programming languages.

At the end, I chose C++. I’ve decided to tame this beast and master it with all I can.

Was this the right decision? Is this a good investment?
Only time will tell.
