Well, I've been here for a while now. I haven't said anything for the last 2+ years, so I thought I'd change that by posting this. :)

I'm still working on game development. I decided to say "screw Flash!" and go with Common Lisp, which, admittedly, isn't all that common. It is, however, my favourite language and in the same league as C/C++. I've been learning full-time (for the past year) by building a lot of OpenGL-related cross-platform stuff, mostly a graphics interaction library, resource management system and event system. Currently I'm working on OS X support for an OpenGL "utility" library similar to GLUT for Common Lisp.

I'll skip over all the boring bits and leave you with an old, scaled-down picture of a working GUI that I am building. Visit me over at github, if you'd like to have a look at some of the stuff I've been doing. :P
