The sqrt() of all evil...

I've been working on some 3D stuff for ProjectLCD. It's obvious that I've been pampered by working with OpenGL on PC for a while now, because I seem to have forgotten a whole lot of vector math.
Anyway, J2ME doesn't have any sqrt() function, so I had to research a bit on how to implement it, and boy does it take a lot of instructions to calculate. The performance on slower device will probably take a hit, but it shouldn't be too bad since I only need one sqrt() per triangle.

In other news, I've started thinking about a redesign of my website which is long overdue. I found some nice templates to use as a base, but we'll see when I get around to actually doing something.

Time for a quick update on what I'm currently working on:
At the moment my limited time for hobby coding is devoted to ProjectLCD (Project Lowest Common Denominator), the first J2ME scene demo intended to run on ANY Midp1.0 device, be it a cellphone, PDA etc.
I've got a couple of effects done, and even some nice little "design" backgrounds. Release date is unknown, and knowing my trackrecord when it comes to finishing stuff, it might be a while.

So I have created a blog. Why? I don't know. What will I write in it? I have no idea - the future will tell.
