Hi, I've just read the post. It's nice, it doesn't waste the
reader's time and comes straight to the point (apart from
highlighting D's strength). I agree, however, that the title
could have been better in terms of attracting readers. Since
you mention game programming, maybe it would be good to mention
it somehow in the title, something to this effect:
"A common problem in game programming and how D solved it"
or something like that.
In this way someone who's interested in game programming may
read it or at least take note of the fact that D is mentioned
in the context of game programming (and offers solutions). You
would want to think less like an engineer when writing and more
like an editor / PR guy who wants to get readers interested.
Good headlines are the most difficult part.
I think it's a perfect title. "vector swizzling" is a common term
for anyone working with the graphics side of games and is also
applicable outside of games development for any graphics
programming. Good keyword title.
