Huh, sometimes you think "oh hey, computers are fast enough now that it's fine!" and that's true until the rendering engine you built for fun is limited to 15fps due to the sheer number of heap memory accesses per frame. :oof:

(This is my conclusion after looking at a project from about 4 years ago again. Neat, though, even if it does perform awfully.)


Anyway, if there's anything I've learned:

Hobby projects that don't serve a real purpose and probably aren't done the best are still a good learning experience. You can't get better at writing code if you don't write code ;)
