    Default Spare Time?

    So,

    We obviously all spend time on computers, but we can't all be refreshing the Rift Forums all day long? What do you guys do in your spare time (ON THE COMPUTER)? Play another RPG? Make websites? Surf youtube?

    Post away.

    I personally used to play WoW and refresh the forums - I then decided I was going to attempt some game developing, so today, I began to self-learn C++ - I must say.

    Ha! Keep working at it, I'm sure the epic-ness of your fail will reduce in time.

    Me, I refresh the forums here, spend too much time on facebook, play EQ2, and do a little bit of writing. Boring.

    Past few weeks it was "Revision" for exams, youtube browsing and refreshing main forum every 30 seconds. So here are few good things I found on youtube during this time... Swear Jar and Clothing Drive. These are two of the BEST commercials that you will ever find on internet!

    I don't know if it's the actual coding what's hard, or the fact I don't understand half of the vocabulary the tutorial uses?!

    Spending time with the kids most of the time. Once they go to sleep I try to spend time improving my coding skills until I get frustrated and decide its time to do some gaming.

    I feel your pain

    I learned 'C' on an IBM mainframe back in 1988, then 'C++' for PC/LAN application programming around 1990, but I haven't used either since then.

    I took up web programming with ASP.NET about 5 years ago, but instead of learning 'C#' (C Sharp) I went with VB.NET.

    If the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy was made by today's MMO designers, the first 8 hours would be condensed into 30 minutes, and the last hour would be stretched out over 8.5 hours. It would be all about 'The Ending' and not about 'The Journey'.

    Just keep working at it. It isn't really too bad until you get to Pointers and that seems to hang up most people but you can get through it.

    Here's a link to a free video tutorial which will take you along the very basics of programming in C++.

    My free time isn't spent doing much. I am currently back in school taking up IT/Programming and when I am not working on the classwork I am broswing mmorpg, Facebook, and these forums.

    Currently play Borderlands, however I spend a completely disproportionate amount of time in OT forums for various MMOs (usually pre release ones, to put it in perspective I had hit 6,000 posts on Forumfall... admittedly however Forumfall held a special place in my affections however for the sheer number of opinionated, vitrolic, esoteric rants on it).

    Yes I can!!!

    If I am not browsing forums I am in-game Usually I am on during work tho, where I program mostly. So my refresh is pressed everytime I press compile :P
