Pinned toot

Hey! Super happy to be part of this community :)

Does this count as social media? If so, this is a first time for me.

Thought I'd start by sharing something - at least for me - inspirational. Looking forward to get to know y'all!

Hey! I've been away for a while, but I'm still around and have done a few cool things... and some tasty ones :3

One of my favourite recipes these days has been an Italian classic...

Hopefully my translation makes sense :'D

@rek you should definitely try it!

Pictures will probably be available later this week when I re-do it.

Bread #2

Just out of the oven, the crackling sound of cooling bread and delicious smell is taking over the house :3

Well, here's to hoping it's better than the first one! :D

Hello from my new, switcheroo'd, Arch Linux installation :D

Setup is definitely not over, and data is not even migrated, but the system is up and all devices seem to be properly configured!

Next step: see if I can play some DotA on this computer 8)

I'm baffled by how much my data fragmented and got scattered in the years.

On the other hand, considering I started doing this in 2005 when I was 12, it's surprisingly well-organised, and has good redundance.

Well done, kid me!

Highlight for now: deleting some old iTunes files I've been logging around since 2006, when iTunes still was quite decent.

Still preparing for the Big Switcheroo from Windows to Linux.

Suggestions for a Desktop Environment?

I normally use XFCE, but wouldn't mind something looking a bit more modern :P

Found last year at the academy of Arts in Venice - ref-ound today while clearing out old pictures.

cc @rek @neauoire I guess? :P

My first sourdough bread!

Oven temperature was too high, it's ever so slightly undercooked on the inside, I put too much flour on top, and the surface cuts aren't good because my knife is dull.

Nonetheless... Tastes amazing and will definitely do it again, probably in smaller amounts.

Looks like I found a way to save myself from the terrible Trento bakeries! :3

HyperCard is excellent the way it is, and I wouldn't want to see an "updated version" of it. What we are missing, I think, is a player that works even from outside the emulator, or a way to compile stacks into executables, or at least contemporary interpretable code (e.g., Python?).

I have no clue about how one could do that, though, and probably it'd be a legal nightmare :'D

How awesome would it be make stacks, and then distribute them using floppies, as well as online?

Here I am, finding myself suggesting to itch.io that they add HyperCard to their game engines ;)

Also, I feel like there is so much space to improve the game's writing.

I decided to write in small °message boxes", and it's been a real challenge.

Maybe I tried too many new things at the same time, but hey! at least we finished the thing.

I never expected I would see so much room for improvement and so many more things I could work on.

Our entry is ready and uploaded!

This is my first complete game ever, so I'm super excited :D

It's been lovely to work with clat (not on Mastodon) and his skill to consistently create awesome art.

This morning I got a very kind offer from @erre to make a soundtrack for the game. His ability to create music at the speed of... sound? has been truly inspiring.

Now it's up to you to reassemble the Truth. Hint: you won't be able to. Not on your own, at least...

First glimpse of the amazing art of my friend Clat, along with my crappy text and UI.

The first part of our submission to the is somewhat ready! Now just four more segments to go >_>

Hope I'll be able to finish! :D

Yeast texture: 10/10 ...and the taste is incredible too :D

I'm super happy!

Main flow and "mechanics" of entry are in place! Basically, the game is playable, but without text and art. Everything is even somewhat tested :O

Meanwhile, a friend and old mentor of mine agreed to do art for the game. I'm flattered to have his support :D

Tomorrow I'll be on writing duty while my friend draws, and then it'll be time to stitch everything together and do a lot of polish.

In parallel: focaccia undergoing second rising. Awesome smells and lovely yeast bubbles :3

I'm preparing my entry to the even though I'm a total newbie to making games.

Yes, I'm making a game and I'm totally overwhelmed by this, but! This shall not stop my bread-making endeavours!

Today, focaccia attempt #2.

Lil monster is spawned and growing: hopefully he'll be ready to work in around an hour :3

Okay, I just found out about Turris routers.

Their "MOX" device is impressive: a fully open source (sw/hw) modular router with enough power to also run Linux and stuff like a NAS, or simple server softwares.

Overcooked, lacks a bit of salt, but all in all it's super tasty, and it's my first sourdough recipe!

Sounds like I'll need to finish it really quick so that I can make a second try in a couple days? :3

Okay, I didn't post all the steps in between, but after 12 hours of labour and many mistakes (which of course I can't fix and therefore I'll literally have to eat), it's ready for the oven!

Fingers crossed it'll come out decent :3
