EDIT: Starting to put some stuff on GitHub, check it out if you want. I'll just leave this here.

Do people actually read and care about these things?

May as well write one for the sake of it. Even if it doesn't match too much with this site.

I've been getting back to my roots recently, been straying away from Half-Life 1 and going all the way back to Game Boy Advance programming. It's always something that I've enjoyed, especially since when I was a lot younger. Hell, it's what got me into programming as a hobby today. It's always fun to see what you can do with such an old device with limited capabilities.

And on the way I've picked up some new tools, guess the latest devkitADV build from 2003 is a bit dead now don't you think? There's a new, updated version called devkitPRO and it looks a lot better. Also learned how to use Makefiles on the way, which is useful in my opinion, no more using nasty Batch files.

And the best part for me, it's in plain old C. No more of that C++ to deal with right now. Not as if it's that different though.

Maybe I'll release my work on GitHub or whatever. Even if it's a bit irrelevant to post here.
