(I was going to call it "the happy young programmer room" so it would match the other thread, but that sounded like it would eliminate some people.)

Just accomplish something incredibly awesome, or figure out the solution to something that has been bothering you for a long time? Or are you just a happy programmer in general? POST ABOUT IT HERE.

Beer!

I'm just getting started with game programming (in C++, that is; I've been using Game Maker up until now) and I'm finally accomplishing some shit after beginning to use SFML. Feels great to actually create something that isn't completely stupid and useless.

I sometimes hide a "happy programmer room" in my games. Although not in any ones i've gotten out.

Tonight I'll be coding a button class. When you mouse over it'll flash and beep. When you click it'll flash brighter and beep louder.

Hot damn I love a good button.  Grin

After weeks of frustrations for the Distributed Systems course at uni, we decide to go all the way and implement a version of the Chord distributed hash table able to sustain dynamism (nodes come and go) in the simulator provided by our teacher. We called it Rope, just for kicks, and guess what!, it was actually rather easy to do and it WORKED. It survived situations where over 80% of the nodes crashed with a "netsplit". Of course, it was all simulated, but STILL.

Man, that felt good.

I know the website AND the snake clone. It's pretty good.

Know what, Cymon's Games is all about being a happy programmer. It's run by a happy programmer (me!) and attracts happy programmers.

Sure, when I compile a program and get some odd behavior that I didn't expect I get grumpy for a moment, but that just makes it all the sweeter when I get it. There's nothing like the feeling of getting a program to work the way you want it too.

I'm very happy with the event system i built for C++. I use it for everything and really have no idea how I coded anything without it.

I found the line that solved my sad and dark primitive colors:

mInfo.mDevice->SetTextureStageState (0, D3DTSS_COLOROP, D3DTOP_DISABLE);

That's all!

I've been a happy programmer ever since I stopped having to write all my code to be safe in a completely unrestricted multithreaded non-blocking assembler environment. Something which might previously have taken a week and half a dozen carefully written special cases now takes half an hour and a tenth of the space and I get to use closures and a garbage collector! Beer!

Multithreading: just say no!

I've spent the past week working ten hour days on my game project as I am too sick to leave the house.

However, on an upside, I have rather a lot of the Lua integration in now and it is looking pretty sharp.

I am happy because I got a "Hello world" project to run in FlashDevelop.

Cagey's tutorial was really helpful. Thanks, Cagey!
