I made a Tarte Tatin, today 🍎. I didn't expect it to be that easy! Well, admittedly, I lazed out and used pre-packaged pâte feuilletée 🤫 .
Still turned out great! 🤩

The treasure hunt I'm planning for my friend's birthday is starting to look like a state machine or some kind of cryptographic algorithm… 🤪
I hope it'll be convoluted enough to be fun! 😀

I don't know if I have to laugh, cry, or throw up!...

Thanks @aral for this discovery

I spent last week backpacking through . Breathtaking landscapes 😍 .
Here is the sunset over the bay of Pwllgwaelod. 🌅

I was only here on Saturday. In the evening I had a great game of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells with @[email protected], blasting some space demons straight out of Doom 🤩 .

Here is all the loot I brought back from UK Games Expo in Birmingham: the boxed set I mentioned in my previous toot ; the gorgeous new edition of Troika, with an alternate setting zine ; Mothership, awesome space-horror ; a mini-dungeon by the authors of Best Left Buried ; a deck of prototype Fellbound cards gifted by their friendly designer ; and a whole lot of business cards and flyers to keep an eye on the games to come! Glad I made the trip!

Paolo Greco gifted me a boxed set of his amazing Chthonic Codex to thank me for my involvement in the and the free publicity I have been making for his products over the years. That's so nice of him! The box even contained nice bonuses: print copies of Adventure Fantasy Game, Maze Rats and Marvels & Malisons. And it's all hand-made! ❤️

My workflow is in dire need of an overhaul: I have a Perl script that parses a Verilog source to generate a CSV that get imported into Excel, goes through various lookup formulas, is exported by a Visual Basic macro into a C source file that is called by a C++ class compiled by various Bash scripts and Makefiles to run on a simulated target. 🤦‍♀️
And then there is the log parsing that adds another thick layer of messiness. 😥

Trying home made duck gizzard confit for the first time. Doesn't look great but smells delicious. I can't wait to taste it tomorrow!

American president Jimmy Carter may have been attacked by a rabbit in 1979, but it's nothing compared to French president Giscard d'Estaing, who was assaulted by a panda in 1981.

Jacob Hurst, the author of the setting Hot Springs Island, sent me this awesome lizardman t-shirt with a cool tote bag and merch, all as a gift to thank me for my involvement in the community built around his setting. That's so nice of him ❤️ .
