Oh well, back to work after a week of sickness and what do I have to see? A whole new version of Apache2 to play with. I don't know if I should be happy or sad.
Boy, do I feel dumb. After days of trying to fit a map of hexagons into memory (and actually drawing them to the screen using 6 triangles, too), SpoonMeiser pointed out how to do it right... I hope the weekend will come soon.
