Pinned post

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

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!

violent flashback to me saying "sheeesh" in my room yesterday and Alexa replying "I think so too"

Hmm, wonder what anime I should pick up next, now that I finished Lain

go for another classic and finally watch Cowboy Bebop?

thinking about work and remembering my last exception was about email standard RFCs

phew, so I finished Lain

aaaabsolutely mindblowing

linter going "AbcSize too high" and I have no idea to make the code any simpler aaaaa

Andy boosted

Retrospring reached 69 stars and since no one has starred it

which is a wonderful sight

Wonder what's going to happen with Pleroma now that (at least 2) maintainers have stepped down

Ah yes, good old "configuration API is way too complex" moment

I couldn't bother spending more time, so I just file_put_contents() debugged myself out

and it worked

current big feature idea:

AP inbox/outbox support for Retrospring

the idea of just mentioning someone with a question on fedi and it appearing in their inbox is awesome

the dream of adding big features to your project

but eventually just holding back because the code needs major refactoring before introducing new features actually makes sense--

so I now have experience in replacing the inner tubing of an escooter wheel



church, religion 

really need to look into making an appointment to leave church

recent bubbling up of the entire mistreatment of children and staff

plus the fact that I pay "church tax" for a completely busted institution

needs to stop now

Ein Leitfaden für eine Kultur des Wechselns von (sozialen) Netzwerken, die falsch und bedrückend sein können.

birdsite, nft, crypto 

NFT bros complaining about Twitter allowing "any" NFT to be used as profile picture, and not just verified collections is hilarious.

It basically ENABLES right click->save and minting someone elses NFT anew, so you can have the same hexagonal profile picture
