You know what feels awesome? Rewriting a SQL query that took over 4 minutes to run to now run in 0.3 seconds. This on the basic free version of Microsoft SQL Server on a simple desktop computer. You don’t always have to upgrade to more CPU and RAM to improve performance. It’s amazing what you can do when you have deeper knowledge of how things work under the hood and take advantage of that. In other news I’m currently keeping myself busy with programming WebGL vertex and fragment (pixel) shaders for a web project I’m working on. This is one area of software development where you certainly have to be at least a little good at math. In between I’m working on QuantumGate, making small improvements and working out the next major components that I’m planning to build. I noticed more people taking a look at it on GitHub, so that’s a good development.
