Behind the Brain

void pointer break

No real progress. I have a *REAL* weird bug that I didn't manage to catch yet. I get random access violations on two of my machines, very strange results on another machine and just nothing on a fourth and fifth machine. Crazy thing number 1: The "nothing" is the best result of these three. This has to be a different error. So what is so weird? The only thing the my two machines and the third have in common is that the graphics card is some nVidia model. The other two machines have Intel graphics chips. So now I decided to write a port that runs on mono and see if the problem will then still occur.

However I've taken a break from coding. Too many void pointers and dirty memory tricks that I need to port into clean C# code. And since my colleagues at work gave me two great books for my birthday last saturday I already found something else to do. However when I'm done with the books (shouldn't take too long. They both seem to be really good) I'll go on with porting.

The first book is "Fermat's Last Theorem" and the second one is "The Code Book" both by Simon Singh and I already started with the first one. Still can believe that it took over 300 years to proove that  x^n + y^n = z^n is not solvable for n > 2...
