So, I'm in Waterloo all alone this weekend (I'm not calling people who should be studying for exams), so in order to stave off loneliness I started looking at OpenGL again and this is what I created:
It's an arm and by pressing one of 16 keys the various joints can be rotated (to a certain extent) in either direction. Technically I could make another arm and put them both on a body, I guess, but I think I have done enough for today. I actually used some of the code from a tutorial, but that just gave the two pieces of the arm, none of the fingers and no bounds on the rotation.
Time for supper now, I am almost healthy again I think, but I still cough a lot. It is hard to believe that I started being sick nearly two weeks ago when I left for Ottawa. I haven't been sick for that much time ever before, it has been very unpleasant.
