It’s been (a month – (1 day + some hours)) since my last entry. I think we all know this is because I’m a lazy bastard who never updates his shit, be it websites, blogs, vlogs or the like. This is quite the case on my YouTube channel, where I haven’t uploaded a video in months. I don’t know why, but part 30 of my “Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis” Let’s Play has gotten almost 60000 views by now. Why such a shitty video, even by my standards, gets so many views, is beyond my ability to fathom. I have plenty of other videos where I don’t “rage” and yell like a little whiny bitch and that don’t suck donkey dick.
Anyway, this is not a rant about my YouTube “career”. It’s not even a rant at all. I’m just giving myself a heads up as to what I have been doing the last month within the realms of programming. I have begun what I plan to be one of my final, purely console-based projects in C++. Its name is “Parb’s Adventure”, at least for now. The name really is just a play on Nintendo’s character “Kirby”, including the looks. Implementing the character’s figure in the game was easy: just convert the character image from .png to ASCII-art using text-image.com’s image-to-ASCII converter.
More information about the project will be available in the near future. Maybe.
Since I feel like there wouldn’t be a “true” rggprogramming-blog post without a rant, I figure I might as well throw one in.

So, I’m sitting on my ass, trying to teach myself polymorphism. I look up Bucky’s video introducing the shit. As the video progresses, I’m like: “Bitch, please! This is shit is easy as shit! Why did I not start with this earlier?” My face likely showing a smug look, I continue watching the video. I hit the fucking wall as soon as Bucky reaches the part with the pointers. Motherfucker, are you telling me I need to know not only what the fuck a variable-pointer does, but also what a motherfucking object-pointer does? Are you fucking high? Am I walking on water? Do I look like I can walk on water? I’m not fucking Jesus with godlike abilities, here! What in the flying fuck do I need pointers for? I suppose it’s just a pointer to the object. I guess that’s not much more difficult to understand than the “normal” pointers I have been working with thus far? You know, the little I have worked with them? The part I don’t understand, however, is the part where it’s actually explained why we use pointers. You know, the part that isn’t? I didn’t just typo there: It isn’t, as in “it doesn’t fucking exist”! Listen to me, you Americunt fuck! Either you tell me why the fuck I need this, or there’s no reason for me to learn this. It’s like fucking school with programming: You learn shit for no other reason than “you must”. Go fuck yourself with a rusty spork!
