Greetings

This is my introduction post.

I'm from Baltimore, Maryland but not a native. I was born n New York, educated in Massachussetts, and now live in Baltimore. I've been a software engineer for 33 years. I program in C and C++ on Windows. I have written a lot of software over the years but never written a game. I have read the source code to games in C or C++, built them, run them, but never had the time (or passion?) to write one.

In this forum my focus is to see what results come from using a unit test framework (GoogleMock) on the source code; And maybe some more STL. I am using the book v1.x and the v4.x code, Visual Studio 2008 (2010 if neccesary), Windows Vista, and DirectX9. I have everything building and running fine.

I will try my best to share what I know, discover, and not be too cranky (I'm becoming a cranky "greybeard", I fear.) Time permitting, that is. And maybe I will pick up a few new things here.

From one cranky "greybeard" to another, welcome.
