Glad you have enjoyed reading the blog, Zachary. In regards to an autobiographical post, how about this one: http://www.codeofhonor.com/blog/about-me? I don't think it's exactly what you're looking for, but I haven't yet written anything longer about all the (lack of) planning, (little) prepartion, and (especially) luck in my career that enabled me to make fun games. Let me know if you have any specific questions: pat@codeofhonor.com

I did work on Rock & Roll Racing; I was one of two programmers on the project; almost all of my effort was dedicated to graphics and tools. I wrote a project that converted 2d "top down view" maps of tracks into 3d isometric-view maps built out of 8x8 cells so that the Super Nintendo could render the screen quickly enough given that it only had a 2.58 GHz 8/16-bit processor. Most of the what I would call "real" programming for that project was done by Bob Fitch, who is still at Blizzard (AFAIK).
