The other day I opened visual studio 2010 and on the start page I saw a news feed about a project of mine the asteroids project
this is the link http://channel9.msdn.com/coding4fun/blog/Asteroids-C-3D-and-OpenGL[^]
It has over 35000 views on that site and on codeproject has about 3000 downloads and 12000 views that means 3000 people around the world has a code I made.
if wasnt by codeproject that project will still only on my PC until the end of times.
Thats why I love this site

Are you looking to use a rule engine to decide the game's strategy?
If so, you'll need to build a forward chaining engine (that maps a domain set to a range set). You could also use a neural net to decide outcomes based on prior events.
Things get a little more interesting if you use neural nets because the game can pick up on the player's behavior and alter its strategy accordingly. A forward chaining rule engine will tend to give more predictable results. However, you could add some randomness by attaching random weights to rules at run time.
Afternoon discussion here in the office wheedled round to The Six Million Dollar Man.
I think it was one of the cleverest pieces of direction, the use of Running Very Slowly to be the visual metaphor of Running Very Quickly Indeed.
To show Colonel Austin running at high speed would have looked ridiculous and been obviously a speeded up bit of film, and your mind would have rejected it as implausible.
However by conveying the great speed by use of slow motion was inspired.
Thank you for allowing me time to compliment the Directors and Producers of aforementioned show, you may return to your duties.
