I've been noodling with a Win32 version of Tetris, the ubiquitous "shape placing" game. I'm working in C++ using the Simple Directmedia Layer for my graphics. One of the interesting things in working out the game is the "shape" data. Below is the code for one my shapes, and the methods to "rotate" and "draw" it.
In the previous part, I showed the main loop to grab the "interesting bits" from the HTML of my Sporting News' BLOG. Let me dig into this a little more.
I have a separate BLOG on sports at The Sporting News. However, if you wanted to point your RSS feed reader (say, Bloglines or Google Reader) to that BLOG, you'd be out of luck. For some reason, Sporting News doesn't provide RSS feeds for their blogging public. So I set out to create my own RSS feed.
