Pinned toot

recent indie game video boosts 

I've been playing some truly awesome small indie games in the last few months. I archive my streams over at, and I work to get closed captioning on them within a week of uploading.

If you're looking for some game recs, I'd suggest checking them out. Just about all of them take between 10 min and 3 hours, so these are quite small games by conventional standards. You can subscribe to a Peertube channel w/ a Mastodon account, too.

An : I'm Melissa (they/them)! Some of my projects are in my bio, but in general I am and do:

I write. I . I play way too much Fallen London. I collect tattoos. I will not call posts "toots".

I like learning to be more imaginative in devising solutions to difficult problems. ๐ŸŽŠ

The world could have been close to full vaccination by now, if we had agreed on royalty free licensing for all approved vaccines. Instead we sacrifice life in the name of intellectual property and patents. Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the toot.

Building the #GUI is honestly where I'm feeling the most out of my depth. I want it to be rustic & pretty, but also simple, functional and accessible. Any thoughts on what I got so far?

I'm live on twitch! Come hang out with me while I play Wide Ocean Big Jacket:

Can anyone help me figure out what sort of wireless access point I can use to extend wifi to my barn? I have pretty good signal there now since I upgraded to a new Asus ZenWifi mesh system. I have been looking at Ubiquiti Unifi products, but not sure what I need; including what PoE options for a very cold climate.

Difficulty level: I am not dumb, but tune out on jargon. I need something simple.

Plan is to set up camera in barn for monitoring sheep since we no longer have guard animal.


Well, I tried Hades after my stream last night and fucking loved it, so that's definitely up next. In fact, I'll almost definitely stream sometime before my next regularly scheduled one.

tonight's stream 

I've got a weird headache tonight, and instead of rescheduling *again*, I'm just canceling this week's stream. If I have energy later this week/weekend, I'll do something impromptu.

Tonight's stream 

Sundays are hard, and I rarely sleep well on Sunday nights. ๐Ÿ˜ด I'm rescheduling tonight's stream and the rest of my biweekly streams for Wednesdays going forward. I'll be more awake. ๐Ÿ˜

Granny Square Colors 

Made a little update to Granny Square Colors this afternoon:

It should help with some user registration errors I'm seeing in the logs.

dev, granny square colors 

I do want CSP, so I'll definitely get it sorted out, but the fiddly-ass addition of every domain to my backend settings file (meaning a code push!) feels like a real bad way to manage this. I need to do more research.

For now, I'm going to go do all the shit I normally have to do on a Sunday, and let any errors that flow in accumulate until tomorrow. I've had a moderately busted heater for a week and my goddamn fingers hurt from coding in a chilly office for 12 hours.
