Update: Qt 4.8.7 Real 3D Demo without DirectX or OpenGL

UPDATE!! Now it’s ready, amigos.

Z-order rendering is “fixed”, but not optimized, it’s at a satisfactory design point for me. Culling works. Performance is satisfactory, running at 60 frames per second on my quad-core PC, and a very impressive 30 frames per second on my duo-core PC. Hopefully, most people have duo-core and faster PCs these days, but it’s worth noting when I do compile list of system requirements.

So what does this all mean? It means I will more than likely be able to “emulate” at least Super Nintendo quality video games with my game engine and that’s what I originally intended.

It all takes time.

How To Display Update Favicon in Google Chrome

You may notice that Google Chrome does not update your website’s favicon when you do because it stores a copy locally on your computer. So deleting your browser cache doesn’t do anything. Instead, you have to go to:

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

on your Windows machine, in this case Windows Vista, and delete the

Favicons

file. Of course, make sure Google Chrome isn’t currently running when you do. If you’re not confident about the change, then you can move the file or rename it. But Google Chrome will automatically generate a new file anyway.

So when you revisit your site, Google Chrome will re-cache your updated favicon. Noice.

Tips on Implementing Blazing Fast Qt Applications

By Chongchen Saelee

I want to share with you my personal tips on how to implement blazing fast Qt applications. I’m just a hobbyist programmer, but I still understand the importance of programming principles such as KISS (keep it simple-stupid), OOP (object-oriented programming), optimization, utility, and user-friendliness. In the end, you’re writing a program that people want to use. Therefore, if even you can’t use the program, then you’ve done it wrong. more »

How To Minify HTML With Notepad++

By Chongchen Saelee

When you want to optimize HTML processing speed, you might want to minify the HTML code. This is done by removing all whitespaces, assuming your code is strongly-typed and syntax and structure is all correct. You can do this manually, which will be a pain, or use the help of an advanced text editor.

Download the latest version of Notepad++ (as of today, the latest version is 6.8.6). It’s free and way more robust than your standard Windows Notepad (obviously, if you can’t tell by the name). more »

I have no shame in the learning process. As I’ve said before, just by mere observation, men don’t know how to grocery shop. As for myself, having relied most of my entire life on my mother’s grocery shopping decisions, I hadn’t released how difficult it is to balance a good diet and budget. My target is to spend around $50 and eat for at least a week or two. Anyway, here’s yet another one of my receipts from today’s grocery shopping experience at Walmart: more »
