Soon after I learned how to program back in 2003 or so, I wanted to program 3D stuff, just because I though it was cool. Unfortunately, the Python wrapper to OpenGL sucked. Majorly. I could manage, but I had to do without whizzbang features like shaders, and framebuffers, and HDR. At least I was happy texturing things and using shadow mapping. I even wrote the article on it.
I have been playing around with my design lately, and want to share some of the cool things that I've done.

Someone I recently spoke to encouraged me to post some code here.
People often say stuff about the eleventh hour. It usually involves something stressful. It's a time where important perilous decisions are made.
I was on StackOverflow Careers today, filling out a new profile. Curiously, it asked what my first computer was. It was some Compaq with a 486, circa 1996. I now realize that by the time we (excuse me, my parents) got it, it was already out of date. Doesn't surprise me, my parents are total cheapskates who only replace something essential after it's been broken for two months, then get a third rate Chinese knockoff.
