Just finished programming practical 3. I'm getting the hang of this quite quickly now (especially for a programming newbie like me). I suppose trying it out beforehand on my computer back at the halls helped out a fair bit. When I first read the sheet, I thought it'll be madness, with a program full of formula. Turns out it's just a simple process multiplication; next time I'll have to remember to read the sheet properly. But I'm still proud of the outcome.
What I really like about programming is the outcome. Despite it being unexplainably basic, it still feels like I've created a masterpiece; I've always felt that way whenever I create on the computer (be it flash animating or likewise).
On a completely different note. In vain attempt to solve my previous horrors (lack of friends here at Reading), I've created a Steam Community for students of Reading. For those of who are interested, it's called "The University of Reading Gamers" or "UoRG" for short.
Feel free to join no matter what you're studying, or what games you play (even if you don't play games). I just want a nice gaming community online to meet new people. Feel free to tell everyone about the community. Once plenty of people have joined, regular games will be hosted (Counter Strike: Source anyone?), and I do have links to compete against other Universities in team games!
Also. I'll leave you with a burning question. Why is there no Video Gaming Society?
