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!

ah well, might need to source timestamps from personal stuff and ask friends then too

I'll get there

YouTube: "we are removing the dislike count from videos"

I don't know why, but this week big corporations are just going completely bonkers

YouTube literally did the "there are no scams on YouTube because scamming people is illegal"

and my brain just shriveled up

damn, I bought Tetris Effect on Saturday and it's such a good game

got my Matrix thing back up again:

(and sorry to whomever already federated with me because new homeserver on old host is not how you are supposed to do it, but I did it because I can!)
