The Mathematics Involved in 3D Game Programming - Matrices and Cartesian Vs. Homogeneous Coordinates

Writen by Diane Ware - April 10, 2019 in Programming
This blog article is a continuation on the mathematics involved in 3D programming. The last blog in this series was The Mathematics Involved in 3D Programming - Linear Algebra   I recently began studying more in depth on how matrices are involved in 3D programming. One particularly interesting aspect of this is the use of matrices for perspective (and other situations) in 3D graphics.    ...

How To Tell If Someone Unknown Is Accessing Your Wi-Fi

Writen by Diane Ware - March 27, 2019 in Computers
Is your Wi-Fi running slower than normal? It could be because someone is using your LAN (local area network) when they should not be.  There are several ways you can check this.  First way - Check all the device MAC addresses on your network - any you cannot account for indicate a nefarious, rogue device! A MAC address, media access control address, is an alphanumeric identifier unique to each device, as opposed to an

WebGL may be the BEST introduction to 3D programming - Part 1

Writen by Diane Ware - January 14, 2019 in Programming
If you are a reader of some of my past blog posts, you will be aware that a while back I began a series of blogs for the explanation of the mathematics involved in implementing 3-dimensional (3D) programming. I still plan on doing this. However, along the way in my search for understanding 3D programming, so as to understand more adequately the mathematics involved in 3D programming, I hit a few roadblocks.  The main roadblocks I encountered were the books or tutorials used to teach the particular...

Is your computer running slowly? Here are some possible explanations.

Writen by Diane Ware - December 06, 2018 in Computers
A slow computer is one of the main reasons customers bring their computers to Ware Repair. This blog article will discuss the possible explanations for a slow computer. Hard Drive Failure A faulty hard disk drive, HDD, whether the plates are damaged or the other mechanical moving parts are failing can slow down boot times and slow the overall performance of the computer. As can be seen in the i...

WebGL and HTML5 Canvas - both provide a good introduction to the fundamentals of game programming and 3D programming.

Writen by Diane Ware - November 08, 2018 in Programming
At the start of this blog, I want to point out that I have not relinquished my quest to provide further blogs on the mathematics involved in 3D game programming. And I will provide more blogs in the future about the mathematics involved in 3D programming.  However, in my research to learn more about 3D programming, I headed down the fork in the road toward WebGL.  WebGL is a "JavaScript application programming interface for rendering 2D and 3D graphics within any compatible web browser without the use of plug-ins", as quo...

Top Tech June 2018

Writen by Bryan Ware - June 25, 2018 in Software
2018 has been a fun ride so far up to June. As technology becomes more and more a part of our lives, we should all bask in the light of what to expect for the future.  Janurary 2018 Augmented Reality (AR) I’ve long agreed that augmented reality would outpace virtual reality, and this year’s CES event reinforced that for me. Don’t get me wrong—VR is sti...
