My Interests

[walking through the halls of school]

I am a DMA student at Huntington University. My home in in New Creek, West Virginia, and I like video games. I hope to learn something while taking this web scripting class.

The picture above is from the my last attempt to make a video game. I participate in a programing competition called SpeedHack. The point of the competition is to make a simple game in 72 hours using the Allegro game programing library. I didn't get to complete the game as was trying to learn the latest beta version of Allegro.

Recently the ipad came out, I'm not too pleased that it's just a bigger ipod touch, especially since the ipod touch/iphone had quite a few misfeatures. What happen to the vision that most people had when multi-touch technology was introduced?

Come see our latest restriction.
