Amazing girl, but this community debated Mensa about a year ago. I think the general consensus was that Mensa shows you can take a test and has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence.

Today I have celebrated labor day ... by working from about 7.00 in the morning until now (almost 11.00 pm). And what did I do? Refactor my 3D engine, make everything serializable so that I can use XAML to load scenes, curse, debug scratch my head, try something, curse and debug again and finally everything is done in a totally different way and still looks as before. I really can't recall ever working so hard to get so little visible results.
Under the hood only very little is hard coded anymore. I have now a 'director' for the scenes. It loads all kinds of resources and XAML and composes scenes. Ok, at the moment it can only do variations of a formation of ships flying by and there is no background yet, but that's nothing that can't be cured with more models, animations and some code to tell the 'director' what to do with it. At least it can now compose storyboards and yell 'Action' without stumbling over its multithreaded feet.
I have prepared another video and this time you also get to see a little of my UI. Only very little, because I had to run the whole thing in 640 x 480 to get a decent video. Still, the UI is user interfacing, the web service is at my service, the 3D engine is rendering and the director is directing in the background. Now just a little more of everything and it will slowly begin to look like a game.
It must get really depressing further up in the north where you don't get to see the sun for months and summer means that you actually get some light while you are shivering. A little rain is not that bad. I used to have an apartment under the roof with large windows. Nothing like lying on the couch with a good book during a storm
And now I must goto bed, unless I want to have my bosses believe I'm pondering tough problems tomorrow
At least artificial intelligence already is superior to natural stupidity
What's the language spoken at the end of the clip - it didn't sound like any language I have ever heard before - was it Finnish or Hungarian?
(I mention these two languages as their similarity is that they are very different in sound to other European languages)
