I live in Paris, France.

I work on video games (computers and consoles) for a living. I write free software and all kind of crazy shit for fun. My interests: image processing, video coding, rendering, game development, maths, physics, compression, cryptography.

comment Can't argue with success? Looking for “bad math” that “gets away with it”
Maybe this could be explained? I had to Google for what it meant because I have never learned to write down a division like that.

@bodacydo - your solution is not a solution; it never outputs -1.

Probably not the fastest, because there is (((x+3)>>1)&1) - ((x>>1)&1).

Sorry, please disregard; they're projection directions, all right.

comment Fast 2D Line Triangle Intersection test
For the fourth direction, don't you mean the vector normal to the line segment instead?

comment Sequence of numbers with infinite number of primes
An interesting claim to investigate would be that there exists a number $n$ such that there is an infinite number of primes on the $n$th position.
