Pinned toot

So I've been on here for almost three months, guess it's time to do one of those πŸ€”

My name is Andy, also known as pixel or pixeldesu all across the internet. I'm a professional web developer from Germany, while general dev stuff is also my hobby.

I do whatever I'm interested in, games, art, music, etc. while my current focus is preservation of video games and reverse engineering.

I love to make new friends, so feel free to shoot me a mention and let's talk!

Bandcamp client progressing more and more πŸ‘€

oh btw, I started playing Arknights recently, so add me on there πŸ‘€


Bandcamp has no (public) API btw, so this is some fun trickery with scripting

still super-prototype-y stage, but pulling albums already works

- website experience is meager at best, etc. pp.

so I decided to start writing up a desktop client πŸ‘€

also, happy new year, fedi! πŸ’™

me: "I'm doing frontend, it is pain."

@nilsding: "I'm doing backend"

me: " you have backpain?"

πŸ¦€ πŸ¦€ πŸ¦€ WEB 3.0 IS DEAD πŸ¦€ πŸ¦€ πŸ¦€

the internet as we know it is ending

lol. now Discord is having issues as well

"Looks like Google can't pay GCP fees" is probably the best take

πŸ¦€πŸ¦€πŸ¦€ GOOGLE IS DOWN πŸ¦€πŸ¦€πŸ¦€

You know, we've always seen single services being down, but I never saw all services in unison being inaccessible.

That's kinda wild.

I'm pretty sure it generates enough traffic to be sniped away as soon as I forget it, oof.

I forgot to extend domains so many times, but Retrospring is probably the one I'm so scared of forgetting that I always do it in time.
