Pinned toot

Hi everyone, I'm so excited to join the Merveilles instance. :)

I'm Luca. I live in San Francisco, but I was born and raised in Italy.

Design, code, and music shaped who I am. I'm currently Design Systems Lead at Netflix, and I used to play drums in the metalcore band Upon This Dawning.

Four core principles I believe in: clarity, awareness, inclusion, and evolution.

I remember playing a demo of this game. It was included in a cd-rom with other demos of Heretic, and Descent. Damn, it's gonna be tough to find its name haha

I'm trying to remember the name of a videogame released in the mid-90ees, I think. Its gameplay was very similar to Wipeout/Star Wars Episode One. Some sort of space craft racing (on planet, not in space)... PC (DOS) only. Has anyone ever played this, and knows what I'm talking about? :D

I'm also consistently tracking my mood before, and after working on a specific task.

I'm glad to see the entry mood mirrors the exit one. It really is the best situation, IMO.

Way better than starting pissed/sad and finishing happy. And infinitely better than starting happy, and finishing pissed/sad. :)

In the past three days I was able to work on personal stuff for eight (!) hours!

Considering I have a regular job, it's an unbelievable number haha

Done! It took me 2.5 hrs to:
- migrate from chunkwm to yabai
- fix config
- update dotfiles
- fix karabiner shortcuts via goku
- update nero widget
github.com/lucaorio/nero

Next task on the list:
- proceed a bit with the sidebar of my wiki/site :)

I finally got back to some personal work! I will start with some maintenance stuff: first thing on the list is replacing chunkwm with the new Yabai as my WM on macOS. :)

Still chilling, still fu*king around. I will eventually get bored of this! :'D

Since I got back from vacation I've been really struggling to build some momentum with personal projects. Perhaps I chilled too much? :D

Damn, I'm sucking even at getting back to people, or browse socials! haha

Just got back from vacation! Two weeks without internet nor work were exactly what I needed.

Wow, the instance has been on fire while I was away :)

It's happening! I'm finally leaving for vacation. :)

As for the past three years, it will be a digital detox too. No phone, no social, no internet, no email, no texts.

GPS, camera, Kindle, and electric toothbrush are the only technologies allowed.

See you all in a couple of weeks!

I got interviewed for an Italian newspaper!

The centering of the photos and some layouts decision make me a bit uncomfortable haha But the article itself is very good! 🙃

I was going through some old pictures, and this might be the most badass photo I've ever taken. It was shot in the Faroe Islands, almost a year ago!

The webring now has its own decentralized forum client :)

It's something I've been meaning to do for a long time.

In case you're curious, this is a better entry-point to land on the project. One that highlights the garbage hidden here and there.

Garbage can be found even on initiatives that are fundamentally looking legit at a first glance.
