My Honours Project – Golf Game

I was pretty ambitious back in 2003 taking on a Golf Game written in Java. While it didn’t turn out to be a full fledged golf game, I had the beginnings of a 3D engine, forked from a Surface Plotter written by Yanto Suryono. I had a hole creator and I had the physics integrated […]


Memory is Funny

I remember telling people that I wrote a 22 page paper on SPAM back in 2003. It was 16 years ago. And as it turns out, the paper was 41 pages. And I found it when recovering an old drive today. Here it is:
