Time has come to try it again - try to keep writing a "blog" about what I am currently working on. I tried to write blog few times before but each time, for some reason, I stopped. Hopefully this time it will be different and I'll manage to keep it on for more than just few weeks (articles). I also want to improve my poor english writing skills and this could be a good way to do it.
In my dissertation I focus on de novo(from the beginning) assembly of large DNA sequences with short sequence reads using parallel computation models and methods. I actually didn't do much yet, firstly I needed to get into this field of bioinformatics. I'll try to put some stuff probably into section.
To make my own game was always my dream, in fact I started to working on a lot of "projects"/games. But unfortunately I finished only the easiest and simplest of them. I started bigger projects but my inability to be able to focus on single larger project always won. Another problem is procrastination, of which I'm sure you've already heard. The main problem was probably that I've always wanted to make a game from scratch because I was never fond of any kind of frameworks, libraries, etc. - but I'm trying to change that - because in todays fast world it is necessary. But I'm sure that to know basics of game making (how these frameworks do what they do) is also important. Friend recommended me Unity3D (www.unity3d.com), and I was surprised how easily it can do stuff that I was struggling with before. I will certainly recommend you to try it if you are interested in game development, at least for prototyping.
I used to play a lot of games and spent a lot of time with it when I was younger. Today I am, sadly, "grown up man", and I don't have that much time I used to.
My favorites are/were: Ultima Online, DOTA 1, Minecraft
Currently, when I need to "turn off" for a few moments, I play FPS Shadowgun: DeadZone. Usually until rage quit :). You can find me there under nickname 'larrysk'.
