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!

maaaybe I can get that someone to try out fedi at least 🤔

ooof, I should be more active on here again, but FFXIV and some other personal things kinda pulled me back to Twitter, which I don't even like personally :<

external dev from customer adds some code to a project of ours

Inserting two million accounts into my database so I can be the largest mastodon instance around


it's so fun that my parser of that game scripting language is more complex than what the actual game implementation makes out to be.

net positive of that situation?

this will get the remaining userbase of the site mad enough to not keep using Gab.

trying to look at the trash fire that's Gab, but the page just 500'd on me

okay, it definitely works out this way.

me, thinking about reimplementing old MMO golf game

the game:
- so first, my engine is not an engine, it's a device driver
- the game itself implements 90% of what it needs itself

holy heck, finished A Realm Reborn just now, now onto Heavensward.

Final Fantasy 14 is a reeeeally good game.

okay, so the agency that built the website ahead of us decided to render SCSS on demand, even on prod

without caching on a dev system the load time would average two minutes

me: yeets the asset pipeline out the window

less than 1 second load time now
