Programming related plans... Well, first off I just gotta finish SixOfEleven's XNA challenge. Then, I don't know. There are a few project ideas I have to choose from, I'll work on whichever of those I pick. Or, if the community project somehow gets resurrected, I'll be doing that.

On the note of learning a new language.. Over my time here Raynes has gotten me interested in functional languages. So I'm going to try & learn more about those, Haskell being my primary choice.

All I want to do this new year is get more things I wanted to do done. There's much more than what I want to do that needs to be done, though.

One new vocab work looked up & added to the list, and you are glad to have helped. New years resolution, get a better grip on sentence structure now that I've got the writing down, so I don't have to respond in English.. ありがと, You have motivated me even more.

I need to get around to learning the math needed for 3D game development. I keep trying, but every time I do my brain rebels and tries to put me to sleep...

I want to take a delve into some newer languages. I'm starting that off with common lisp. It's fun because it's totally different than what I'm used to. Also I'm decent at math but I want to get a lot better at it so I can become better at some aspects of programming which involve math.
