Ask Slashdot: How Many of You Actually Use Math?

aarku Re:If you want to be a well paid game programmer.. (1086 comments)

This is spot on. Also if you want to be a shader guru, not knowing higher math will prevent that. Games are probably rare in the software world in that math is actually used a lot.

Atari Wants To Reinvent Pong

aarku Hah! (180 comments)

This is an insanely cheap way for them to get software developed for their brand. A straight $100k with no significant % of income is a rip off for the developer in this market. A good branded Pong app will make millions. A similar brand only gets about 20-25% of the sales. But I'm sure they'll get plenty of entries. Ah well, to be young and ignorant again.
