Quite long from my last time typing some progress/diary here...

Well, I'm not a secondary school student anymore so don't I expect I produce notes like in the past (unless some specified topics are required), and I'm still thinking what should I put here in the future.

There's no doubt that I'll continue writing stuffs and making osu! stuffs here, and some generalization or summary on the game vs reality theory -- it's really an interesting topic for me, there are too many subjects related there, like economics (game development, in-game vs market), mathematics, history (The projection of past into game), animation & music, psychology (self-projection on anime), etc.

The nature of RPG is different statistics, a simplified life model. Attack, defence value is determined by series of events, damage done is calculated by a certain formula, evasion is determined by fake-random variable. Everything is expectable, and we know the final result by mathematics. It is not that meaningful to raise a number in such a way instead of writing 1+1=2 on the paper --- (that reminds me George Orwell's 1984 --- freedom is the freedom to say 2+2=4, and if the above condition is satified, everything is not a problem"), so we should appreciate other elements of the game. They often success because of its pictures and stories --- great achievements when completing a story, many doujin CG and musical pieces -- they are the attractive points for ordinary players. We shall analysis the game deeply, the nature of the story, setting of the story, some comparative study with the past or other games -- and that's what I'm going to do.

And yeah. My major in undergrad is mathematics, so I'll still deal with maths here. The first targeted notes will be about integration, starting from FToC (Fundamental Theorem of Calculus) we will go through some typical skills, then some beautiful tricks. As a training of myself I'll try to make some complex integral here and some extreme real integral may need the assistance of complex number here. The material could be mainly from A-level questions, as well as TCoI (Today's calculation of Integral). Integration as a part of real analysis, own its beauty and we shall learn them seriously.

Today is Saturio's birthday, happy birthday!
