Pinned toot

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!

And yes, I merged it myself, but I got all review and test approval

after like 3 or 4 solid by-hand smoke tests.

Made a VNDB account, and included all the Sakura * VNs I played

used one Note field to describe all of them, since they are that simple

I didn't sleep overnight and so I did a long afternoon nap--

I've been really busy, and this has been the bane of my existence for the last 2 weeks.

Zoom acquiring Keybase mainly for their people-power in security and Keybase basically stating "whatever happens to Keybase is in Zooms hands" is basically telling us preemptively that it'll just die.

You know that your day just improved millionfold if you reverse engineer a game

someone joins your Discord

and suddenly you have a Release QA build of that game with PDBs for both the game and the engine



I just spent solid 3 hours cleaning my mechanical keyboard

for the first time

after owning it for 4 years

"gamer gunk" is a weird but accurate term, and I'll now clean my keyboard more often definitely.
