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!


really want to do weekly anime watchalongs again like I did a year ago basically

was fun hanging with people in Syncplay and Discord while watching.

Want to bring it to...not Discord tho because even while I use it, I'd rather use something else for it. Some text chat (Matrix/IRC/whatever) and Mumble or something would be rad.

finding out what tool gamedevs used to make the 3D models purely due to the coincidence that someone accidently included an ASCII export of a model in the game archives is more than luck tbh

selfie, no ec 

I just love how Roegadyn are basically a race you could explain to everyone as "the people with keysmashed names"

that's an NPC by the way

so, about the whole deal of Twitter hiring a handful of OSS devs/etc. to make a decentralized protocol for social networks

jack is probably onè of the number one blockchain-adoring techbro CEOs if you look at his tweets

so 99.95% sure we will get some blockchain-y pandering thing here


I'm trying to use as few as possible, but for a current work project, I'm already using 4.

- CustomEvent
- Object.keys
- Array.includes
- CSS Variables

CSS Variables is the largest one I have to use for convenience sake, but it's 20kb and doubles my non-gzipped bundle size :x

I, as a web developer, hate IE11 with a burning passion.

It always makes me aware, that even with transpiling code down to the most basic form, it won't work in IE11.

*has to throw more polyfills on it, file gets larger* :(

weirdest experience: realtime notifications on a fedi app

I love that cover (and the album is pretty awesome too)
