How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love C++

Okay, maybe “love” is a bit too strong. I wouldn’t classify it as my favorite language, at least not at this time, but I’m beginning to get used to it.

The problem is that I simply didn’t need to learn it before. When I was mostly running Windows it was convenient to just be able to throw together a quick WinForms/WPF application in C# if I needed a GUI. If I wanted to derp around with SDL or something like that I’d just use plain ol’ C and things would generally Just Work™ on other operating systems.

That was then, and this is now. I used to have multiple PCs running Windows on bare metal. Now I have precisely one, and that’s primarily for PC gaming. Most of my systems now are either running Gentoo or macOS, so that approach doesn’t really work anymore.

What the blog?

Back to the Blogosphere

It’s been a red hot minute since I’ve done this here “WordPress” thing, but here we are. For a while I opted to share a lot of my musings on Twitter, but since the site has become more and more of a cesspool as of late I’ve opted to take a step back in time and try this weird “blogging” thing out again.

I don’t have a set theme in mind, though obviously my interests are going to be pretty heavily featured. Here’s a few of my most commonly explored hobbies:

  • Programming and general computing
  • Gaming
  • 3D printing

If you’re interested in any of those things, welcome aboard! I’ll try not to let this thing fizzle out. 🙂
