Wow... thanks guys.

This really brightened up my day, puts an extra spring in my step. I really like Christian Coders (I think I refresh this site more than any other -- including slashdot), I really enjoy talking with everyone on the site, praying for people, working with you all, getting to see some at CGDC (yay!), learning about and in general exploring bringing Christ to be over every aspect of our lives -- even our gaming. You guys all make this a wonderful place to hang out, and I'm very thankful to be a part of that.

Thanks! <wipes virtual tear from eye>

Han was the first guy I met at CGDC '06. He helped me get into my room, had a bunch of questions for me about who I was. He was so humble. Then I saw that he was one of the instructors. But he never breathed a word about his status--true Christian humility. We got to eat dinner together, talk a lot, and his workshop on Python was great. He's super smart and he answered everybody's question at the workshop to their satisfaction. His intelligence is under submission to Christ, and he's a inspiration. It will be great to know him for years to come.

I have to agree with the posts above. Clint, you are a great guy to work with, even if it is online, and you always have something awesome to contribute to the community. I admire your ambition and dedication to each project you work on. You are one of the reasons I keep coming back to this site.

Seriously, thanks a lot for all of the kind words -- I really feel appreciated, and that means a lot. Thanks loads for being such a great group of friends, and I really look forward to continuing the friendships in the future. God's really blessed us all so much -- to Him be the glory.

Praise the Lord for Clint! He (and his lovely wife) has been a blessing to me at the conferences. They have blessed other attendees, many developers throughout several forums (that I can't keep up with all of them!), and is a great juggler to boot!

A sincere "Thank you!" Clint and Jennifer!

Hey Han

I met you here on CCN and you were the first person to join my "christian gaming" area on missionster. You have a strong relationship with christ and it shows, also the way you make him an integral part of gaming and thus make gaming an integral part of your life is a great example. The fact that you give workshops, try to explain the views games give to parents at your church and write articles on faith in games have all positively impacted me. The fact that you are here to give us younger and less mature people a helping hand in both code, art, and spiritual matters just shows your spirit of blessing.

I have never met you in person, but I look forward to the day that I can. Keep up the great work, and don't forget my platfrom ha ha. Jeff out...

Hey it's my Billings friend! Do you have a website? I've forgotten your name...I remember your game and I can't believe how well you did with such a simple programming language. It was an awesome idea mixing in RPG elements, biblical values, the sims type of status, and an immersive world, I loved it and I love how expansive the game is and just how big your idea is for it.

haha, Arch.

I was afraid of that -- I thought my wife might post about how I leave my smelly socks on the floor, or about some of the stupid stuff I did in college, or about how I snore sometimes with a really annoying snot-gargle. But she was very kind, and didn't mention any of that stuff.

Phew.

Yeah, she is. If you're very familiar with the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, then you could probably know it from her avatar. For the rest of you, reading this comic might give you a clue.

Jestermax: Hah -- "pro++". The part about "i wish i were Clint" struck me a little funny -- because I don't even always wish I were me. Sometimes I get really down and out about sin in my life (just as I imagine everyone does). But I do appreciate the comment about pro++.

Thanks!

If I were to hazard a guess, I would say that Clint's been busy with getting back to life in the States, and trying to figure out where he's going to work and what he's going to do in the near future. He's currently working two jobs and needs to quit at least one of them, but doesn't know which to pursue, or if he should drop both of them and pursue full-time Christian-based game development.

But that's just my guess as to what he's been up to.

I've not been spending *quite* as much time on CCN as I used to -- I no longer read every single post that comes through here. I've been working on a few projects, trying to *do* a little bit more with Christian-based games rather than just *talk* about it. Not sure how well it's working out, but I've got a few things to show for it. Hopefully I'll get to show a preview of it soon -- we'll see.

Good to see you around, David!

In Christ,
clint

I totally agree with doing more programming less discussing. I have so many discussions with friends about certain things and the projects we're working on. Written out plans and discussed them some more and talked about features, then in conversation another idea pops up for an app and we then repeat the cycle again.

I've been programming more now then ever. I've taken over one open source app that i have been contributing to over the last 4 years. As far as game development goes i do it all day long at uni so have plenty of time to dedicate to it. I've just completed a pretty complex game framework for a game we have to do called Alien Invaders. It's basicly space invaders with the ability to change from a 2d perspective to full 3d.

Anyways less posting more coding... ahem...

Nothing yet -- I submitted my resume to them almost 3 months ago, and hadn't heard any replies. So I re-sent it yesterday, and we'll see if I get anything back. I know they filled the position I was originally applying for (Linux Programmer), but there are still several others there that I qualify for just as much.

Of course the *main* reason why I'm considering that job is because I could call myself an Aussie just like my hero David Lancaster.

Honestly Crazyish, I would tend to agree with you. I'm glad to know you all like me and appreciate me as a friend. Sincerely, thanks.

But I'm also starting to think that this thread could be hidden in the political forum along with some of the long Warsong threads.

haha, I was just thinking of that, crazyishone. Han's becoming diefied.

but, fortuantely, I found a loophole.

create a cult where Hans is the unwilling true prophet.

How did I miss this thread for months?????????

Clint, you rule.

You are the peacekeeper, never slandering, always being nice and polite. I don't think you are being diefied(spelling?) I think you are simply a role model for many people. I look up to you for your ability to remain coolheadedand calm. I tend to spout off at the mouth, but I'm trying to work on it, and it's good to see your peaceful posts.

I don't view it as worship, but simply looking up to a brother more humble and experienced than myself.

You're the best Clint, period.

Well a brief update for you David, I just quit one of my jobs today and I'll be working with the mission full time for a little while (probably around a couple of months) just to wrap stuff up. Bought a new laptop, and also sent out an application to the place where Steve Goss works.

M^2, not sure if you would know him -- he used to be a pastor of a church down in Indianapolis. Here's our church webpage in case you're interested in seeing a photo of him.

Oh yeah, and since I stopped my other job I sortof need to give them their laptop back, so I just bought a Macbook today (actually the exact same model and configuration as the one that my wife just got).

Crazy stuff!

I don't know him as a person. What he believes about his faith, what his desires, hopes and dreams. Well not on the level a close friend would know him. Maybe he can enlighten us?

As well as adding a bit of silliness.

I believe Clint (and his wife) were the first people I met at CGDC when I got there to set up, and among the last people to help me find my stuff (that had been moved because we were late packing up) as we left. He also led the Q&A discussion that we had on the last day of meeting times. Very nicely done.

Blessings to you,

Things are a little busy at the moment -- Jennifer and I are flying out tomorrow morning for a job interview at the place where Steveth works, so we're praying that it goes well. Still not sure if we'd take the job if offered, but we're really interested in pursuing it and seeing what doors are opened up for us.

I'd write more, but I gotta' get home and finish packing.

Hey guys, if you think of it today (Friday), you can pray for Clint. He is, at this very moment, beginning his interview with Pipeworks (or maybe just sitting waiting for it to start).

Next week he has an interview for a job that would be in Elkhart (where we live now).

If both companies make a job offer, we're still not sure which one we'd take. While game development is a huge dream of Clint's, there are other factors. For example, church, friends, moving across the country vs. staying where we're at, things like that.

It would be a huge change for me, if we moved here to Eugene. I've moved once in my life (when I got married), other than dorms & apartments in college. I've lived in the Midwest my entire life.

So I'm trying to put off thinking too hard about it until after we hear back from both companies. I would really like it, I think, if one job offered, and the other one didn't, then I think it would be pretty clear what God wants us to do. Hopefully that would coincide with how we feel about the companies.

So, I'm off to ride the bus around town and hang out while Clint has his interview.

Three cheers for HanClinto, a most excellent Christian Coder! Thanks for encompassing many of the traits (enthusiasm, Christ-mindedness, skill in your craft, etc.) that we should all try to have as well. I'm not saying that we're completely without those traits, but your behavior encourages us to improve upon them.

Clint = statusIsCool;

I agree.

I would give you 4 cheers, but that would violate the trinity.

I wouldn't want to jerk anyone's chain

Just out of curiosity, I know it's more of a pm question.

Ever been involved in any teams or ever inquired with any companies like XX etc?

I'm not sure what you mean by "XX", if that's an actual company name then i think it's safe to assume not.

OHHHHHH, yeah, i know Xcrucifix, i can't wait until their next game comes out. Their themes are similar to a game idea i had.

Oh, i get what you're saying. No i haven't talked to any game companies, Christian-based or not. I'm going back to school in the fall to finish up my B.Sc. so i wanted to wait until then to get shot down by serious companies. I've wanted to do this since around kindergarten-grade 1, so hopefully God will open some doors/windows for me when the time comes. Until then i guess i'm stuck just being an obsessed wannabe game maker.

Hey guys!

Sorry I haven't posted in here in a while. I've been keeping up to date with it, but you can understand how it can be a little weird posting in your own appreciation thread.

Originally posted by RA Games:

Yeah, me too. One of my disappointments in middle school was finding out that the middle Hanson was a guy. I think I had bought the single before I eventually found out that my crush wasn't valid. Apparently it's not an uncommon mistake to have made, but I still felt pretty silly.


Anyway, embarrassing moments aside, I suppose I should make some sort of official announcement regarding my employment situation. Thanks to you all for all of your prayers -- it was really appreciated! Jennifer and I flew out to Eugene Oregon to interview at the game company that Steveth works for. Steve was kind enough to host us for those days, and it was a fantastic time hanging out with him and his wife, as well as meeting several other members of CCN. The interview didn't go as well as I had hoped, but in retrospect, I guess it went about as well as I could have expected. I have a lot of game development experience, but one big gaping deficiency in my experience is a distinct lack of polished 3d math skills. I can do polar 3d vector math decently well, but as far as using linear transformation matrices or quaternions, I'm just not there. I'm not nearly as polished as I would need to be with things like dot products and cross products, and I don't do as much with low-level optimization as is commonly valued in a commercial game company.

As such, they were still great guys, and I would really enjoy working with them, but they weren't able to offer me more than an entry level position. More than that, they seemed somewhat disappointed with me, and not that enthusiastic about working with me, which was one of the main things that made me think that God might not want me to work there.

And then the next week, I had a surprisingly encouraging interview with JBL. They were very enthusiastic about working with me, and offered me a job package that was significantly more than I expected. It was tough for me to put my dreams of full-time game development on hold, but it really seemed that God was opening the door for us to stay here, and closing the door on Oregon for us. So God took me through a fairly complete mental 180 in about a week's time, which is still hard for me to work through at times, but we are so thankful that we have gotten such clear direction on this decision. All that to say, thanks again for all of your prayers!

So yeah. We're not moving to Oregon (yet), and we're not taking a full-time job in game development (yet). But this new job has got me very excited (I'll be learning DSP programming), continuing to help out at our church, and continuing with friendships that we've made here. So yeah, it'll be good, and because we know it's where God is leading, we know that it will be for the best.

Thanks!

I just wanted to say, every time I think of you Clint I hear these beautiful words ring in my ears:

"Hey all!

It appears that I'm not the only one frustrated with the lack of on-topic discussion here. So here's a thread that's for being on-topic."

Seriously every time I click that thread it's the first thing that comes up along with Clint's avatar, I can't get it out of my head. But we all love Clint and his heroism and coolness makes up for such tiny and harmless acts of unintentional cruelty.

Clint you rock so much!

that so "sweet"
LOL!
On that note...
I can recall, back in my old NASCAR days, I was neck and neck with Jeff Gordon (Never could be taht guy... or any others, for that matter!) IT would be my first victory, or at least 2nd place victory ever! Then some car behind me nicked my back left bumper and I spun out (quite fast, I might add) But when I hit the wall, when it was supposed to be all over, my car did a flip and landed on my roll cage, and THEN my car caught on fire!
Will, Han, being the great guy that he is, risked his life running over the track and handed me a fire estinguisher to keep myself from getting char-broiled. Then he ran back over the track and climbed into his RV again.
That was so great of him, I only suffered minor 2nd degree burns on my right hand and foot! (a little on the neck too, but hey, whos counting?)
Horray for Han!
(That should be someone's signature)

I know you all have heard this story over and over, but I must repeat it...

...I was out in the jungles of Brazil, hunting the famed man-eating snake they have there. My guide, Leroy, had been badly infected with malaria, and I was carrying him in waste-deep swampland. Stopping to rest and take bearings, I noticed the large piercing eyes of the Amazonian Python peaking up through some leaves -- the deadliest of all the snakes in the basin. The snake lashed out and quickly had both Leroy and I in an ever-shrinking death coil. It was all I could do to keep my muscles flexed while breathing in, buying me some precious time. As I started to black out, Han walked by. Apparently he had a snake-charming flute and all was well. We woke up in a village hospital, a few miles from our airport. I'll never forget that. Horray for Han!

Not nearly as dramatic, but I'll tell my tale.

..I was in the Himalayas with a team of five other men our attempt was to scale that man-killer peak Everest. We had made it a good two miles from the peak when Jean-Pierre sneezed a rather loud french sneeze triggering a massive avalanche. We were camped in an enclave that burdened the majority of the force of the torrent of snow, yet still left us huddled in our tent, 50 feet under a snowy grave. Franz started popping open sterno cans and managed to melt hole to the surface before we were knee deep in water. And then it hit us! We had used all the sterno and would be force to eat vienna sausages raw until we were rescued. But then a voice called down the snowy hole! It was Han! He said that he was just coming back down the mountain and had a bunch of beef jerky left over that he didn't really need. That jerky saved our lives! After four short weeks we were airlifted out unscathed. All except Jean-Pierre who lost his nose to frostbite. Horray for Han!!11

Yeah like that time my space helmet fell off while I was lost in space and I was out of oxygen, Han came along and handed me a tank! What a great guy!

And this other time me and Clint were walking along this dirt trail in the outback of Australia, we followed it all the way to this hill so we decided to climb all the way to the top of this hill. Then when we got to the top we looked across the horizon and saw this valley and it was beautiful.

Well, in 2062 I was working on the John F Kennedy Lunar Station in the molecular biology department. We caught word that a terrorist group was launching nuclear weapons at the base and were evacuating. The missiles destroyed the moon, the station and killed all of us working up there. It was such a tragedy that Han built a time machine and went back to Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, in USA at 12:28 p.m. CST. Exactly 2 minutes later Han was positioned on the grassy knoll and fired his rifle, killing President JFK and halting the space program. The JFK Lunar Station was never brought into existence and here I live, a nice and healthy life because of Han's bravery! Horray for Han!

When you have a time machine, you can deliver your baby whenever you want to

HA HA! Thanks, I actually had a dream like that about a week ago. It really wasn't Clint and there was a lot more detail...but that was the jist of it. I've been dreaming a lot of strange dreams lately that would make good movies (probably put out by Deminsion Films of Lionsgate...they do all the weirdie ones).
