|Here's the Sabbatical Proposal.||A mention of the math parser study broken off to take up OpenGL study.|
|Windows.h vs. OpenGL Win32 console and setting header/library files in Visual C.||Some color theory and a first OpenGL Win32 console compiled, linked into executable.||Point and line primitives and more color. Stippling. That is glVertex2f() and GL_LINES.||GL_POLYGONS, GL_TRIANGLES and QUADS, oh my! Also, stippling polygons with GLubytes.||Interpolating colors and tessellating polygons. A nifty example of using recursion to nest tessellated triangles.||More tessellating nested triangles with recursion, now using EdgeFlags.|
|A detailed analysis of the recursively tessellated triangles with rotation and twisting.||It's very easy to get blown away by what seems like a nifty idea! So here's what happened..||Saving the state and chapter 2 exercises from Angel's OpenGL Primer.||A more classic Sierpinski gasket and a start on resizing the clipping box and viewport.|
|Mountains from randomly tessellated triangles, with room for improvement, but good progress.||A more detailed description of yesterday's work. Fixed the problem with the backside filling in.||Got real Mount San Jacinto data from USGS and used it to do some cross-sections. Also axes and labels.||Some animation with double buffering: a rotating n-gon. How to render in html?||Just fussing with learning html such as forms. Trying to work toward OpenGL style web delivery?||More fussing with html: URLS, hyperlinks and downloads. A flirt with JOGL and a turn towards Java.|
|Getting back into writing Java applets with the help of The Black Art of Java Game Programming.||A java animation from the BAJGP...and a java integrated development environment.||
Finishing summer College Algebra.
|Using a class to describe a moving object in java with a method for movement.||More better motion with method binding
and object oriented approach.
|More control over shape, size and motion for Mondrian Applet.||Back to OpenGL to start investigating how to build interaction with keyboard and mouse.|
