Yeah absolutely, it's been quite some time since I last came here (regularly). Well, first off, I've begun studies in Microtechnics at the famous swiss polytechnic scool EPFL http://epfl.ch/
, so even just that has been time-consuming.
Apart from that, I've been hmm.. studying function-level programming (hellooooo Haskell), writing a media player (creeplayer, in Java/Swing lost the code unfortunately), a PHP templating framework for slick websites, and parsers/preprocessors/compilers for fun. Did you ever try to parse stdio.h ? Then you know what I mean.
My current "serious" project is OOC, "Object-Oriented C", which is a dialect of C with some Java-like features (limited support for classes, a Garbage Collector, etc.), and the "compiler" produces pure C code =) That's for a computer science assignment that the teacher *wanted* in pure C, so yeah I give him whatever he asks.
My other main language project is Hackit, in which I'm experimenting with shortest-yet-crystal-clear syntax designing. I have learned assembler (nasm <3) these last few monthes and I have a working front-end and back-end (just need to connect them, *duh*
So you see, I'm not particularly inactive in the programming field. It's just that I'm not quite in Xith3D anymore. Not to say that these days are definitely behind. I'd still love to do some Xith3D now and then, if only I had the time.
What about all of you ? Why don't I see more stunningly shiny new Xith3D projects on this damn forum ?
