Still no good news (but some semi-good news now)

Still no good news is the title I came up with for this post. Combining that title with the absence of many posts in the past period makes all of this obvious enough. I still do not have an internet connection. The semi-good news is that I have been given the green light to set up an internet connection and that i might be able to use someone else's wireless network. I still do have to arrange (and pay) everything myself.
SO... with some luck I might have an internet connection soon. So what have I been up to these days? I have been getting to know the people in the house I live in now, I have been busy working on a GamEngine, a 3d engine in c++ using openGL. I am using tutorials from, but I am modeling the source to my own likes, using a lot of different variable names, adding a class, splitting a certain class into two (as it really was two classes in one in my opinion) and (which I haven't done too much about really) making it cross-platform. I have the uplink source code (yes, I actually have the official dev cd) to guide me through it, as that's a brilliant openGL using c++ application that is cross-platform. Even though the game is 2d it does really help me, and I needed that help.
The lack of internet increased my need for a good portable solution, so I have set up my USB drive to be a powerful platform. I had some applications on it already, but now I saw a friend had the Portable Apps menu ( and I liked it a lot. I installed it and made sure I had all the programs I wanted on it.
I salute to everyone, hoping that I will soon have internet again, so have a good time, and I will keep you (if there is any you, I am not so sure of that) updated if there are any major changes in my situation.

I survived!

So, here I am again. I just thought I'd let you guys know that I have moved without any (too big) problems, I'm living on my own now. Okey, not completely on my own, but it comes close enough. I would wish I was writing this at my new home (not the least for the fact I would have meant I had internet), but I'm not. I am at school right now, using the time that I needed to have in reserve for the cycling to it, as I did not know how long this was going to take.
So... I'm without any internet, so currently it will be harder for me to keep posting. However, I have heard that coming Monday there will be a talk about internet in the house. I will just have to wait and see.
My time's nearly up, so I'm drawing this post to a close. I will be using the internet connection at school a lot as long as I don't have an internet connection at home, I guess. When I get home again, I will have to do quite some unpacking, and will get to know the other people that live in the house, so I'm far from out of things to do. And in the mean time live just goes on.

I'm sorry, I truly am

I promised to write more, but so far I didn't.
I'm sorry, I'm truly sorry. And I can not give any promises about the future with that.

If you are interested, I will tell how this came to be. Okey, I will also tell it if you are not interested, but in that case you may just decide not to read the part ;P.
Tomorrow I will be leaving my parental house, and will move to 'roomtraining'. In the beginning you live together with other people in the house (cook together, share a living room), but in the end you will be living on your own in the same house as a number of other people. which makes this all more fun, is that I only know since last Wednesday. So all of that is why I've been busy (as well as that school started and everything).
And now why I won't quite yet promise anything about the future, because I do not know yet if I'll have an internet connection over there, or how good it will be. So.. let's just hope I'll get a good connection.

Right now i am at school, one place I am relatively sure about my time and internet connection. I have got three free hours today (had one last hour and the other two are the coming hours) and currently I am in my ICT lesson, where we are making a start with OOP, while I know OOP better than our teacher (so the only useful things I am doing is learning a bit of the java syntax for OOP (just some small details) and helping some other people, so I decided to finish my post.
