I am not of the opinion that discovery and invention must follow a strick progressional path such as A must lead to B and so-on. It is likely that the ancient Egyptians were more than capable of understanding the math and engineering required to raise the Great Pyramid. The use of Phi, Pi and Pythagoras theorem appears to have been used in the pyramids construction well before they were first documented.

The civil engineers understood the math.

I don’t understand the math, so, I’m going to begin a math refresher and document some of it here.

By 2300 BCE, The worlds first mechanical calculator was invented. The abacus was most helpful in combating tedious calculation.

Welcome to Battlecrypt – A Self Learning Adventure In Computing & Games

I had intended to dive into an in-depth study of the world of computers, games and game development for some time now. The problem has been on where to start this journey, should I investigate modern computing or begin with a history of computing? I think it’s best to start at the very beginning by learning all of the disciplines required as they became available in history. Working up to the hard stuff so to speak.

No doubt this will take more time than I probably have left as I am an old Battlecrypt.  An explanation, Battlecrypt is an alias that I have used for some time, and it works for me and sounds a little chaotic evil.

The purpose of this blog is to document my progress and is intended as a self learning platform where anyone can follow along. I would love to get feedback and direction from you.
