Finding old code

Every once in a while I find some really cool code that I had written years ago. It’s usually something that implements a capability in computer graphics or animation.

When that happens, I have a shiny new toy to play with. Because in all of the time since I had written the original code, I’ve had years to think about questions like “What would I do with something like that?”

So when the code shows up, I usually put it right to work solving problems that I hadn’t even thought of yet when the code was new. And that makes me very happy.

    Hi Ken,

    Speaking of old code, remember this book from yourself and the other amigos?

    Needless to say, it inspired a number of us. And I think the idea of Mojoworld is getting near. Once WebGPU is released, it’ll likely happen. The internet, and how we use the web browser, will become “different”.

    In the meantime, we’re trying to make due w/ what’s available.

    Any chance I could get your eyes on this one? We’re trying to perturb normals on the gpu.

    Please forgive all the other paths I’m trying to ping you thru.
