Title: Hello Naked Science : )
Post by: Daedalus on 12/01/2012 02:28:14
Hello Everyone!!! I'm Daedalus. I have been a software engineer working in the casino gaming industry for over 11 years. I've worked for REMOVED BY MODERATOR I have helped in the creation of over twenty games throughout my career.

 I program graphic engines, accounting systems, PIC microcontrollers, and probability / par-sheet calculators using C, C++, C# .Net, and some x86 ASM. I mainly do all of my development on Windows using MS Visual Studio, Win32 API, DirectX SDK, ADO and LINQ. But, I also have done some Linux development using Gentoo / Red Hat, GCC along with KDevelop, X Windows, wxWidgets, OpenGL, and OpenAL. I've also programmed some PIC24 microcontrollers, PIC24FJ128GB108 and PIC24F16KA102, from HI-Tech using their C compiler to drive digital / analog inputs and outputs for the switches and lighting systems used by the games.

I've decided to make a career change and pursue a degree in Physics because I love mathematics and would like to apply my computer science and math knowledge to understand the nature of the universe. I am working on a few theories of my own and would like to share them with you all. I realize that my ideas will probably change during the course of my academic studies, but it is always fun to share my ideas with others and gain a better understanding of the universe along the way.

No trees were harmed in the creation of this post.
Not Even The SPAM trees?

Welcome Daedalus,

We welcome academic discussions...  even a few hairbrained ideas,  [xx(]
and look forward to hearing your valuable insights to Physics.  A strong microcontroller programming knowledge would certainly be an asset if you choose to do experimental setup.

However, as with many Public Forums...  anything that even remotely resembles SPAM leaves an unpleasant taste in our mouths, although I realize you may be just wanting to share a bit about who you are.  Perhaps in the future, we will welcome a comparison of some of your creations to discussion topics.

Yeah my bad for providing the link. You can't really buy anything from them as they only deal with casinos. I posted the link so everyone could see the type of games I have developed. Anyways, sorry about that.

I'm not sure if my insights to Physics would be called valuable, but I will be glad to share my theories and the mathematics that I have derived. I hope you have brushed up on your calculus, because you will need it  ;)
