Some interesting points; I suspect I should clarify the reason I ask, based on what I've read so far.

On my current project, having started with Yui's Aetas C++, we use a postgresql database to sto ...

Currently setting up the foundation for our builders/content creators over on Etherea, and I'm debating the pros and cons of either setting up a system to allow all development work (sans programming, ...

Unit tests have made me an even lazier coder than I was before, because I can now make far-reaching changes without (much) fear of introducing obscure bugs. To this end,

On SoI we have a system that generates random short and long descriptions based on the race of the mob, in the fo ...
