Pinned toot

Guess who just made and posted her very first Twine game? This girl, that's who!

It's short, it's basic, but it's mine. And, hopefully, a bit of fun to read.

For the folks who have followed me over from dot social, and new followers as well, I have a brand new Ko-fi set up if you like what I'm doing on Mastodon or on my website. You can buy me a "coffee" (even though I prefer tea) here:

If you want to read a bunch of free stories (and I'm working on a new one right now for the site), my website is here:

Huh, looks like She Dreams Elsewhere, a promising indie RPG, has quietly removed their Linux build from Itch with no explanation. The page still says "Coming soon to PC, Mac, Linux and Xbox One in 2020!" though.


Wow, just checked and there hasn't been an update on the main branch of Caves of Qud since November. All development has been on the beta branch for 8 months now.

I did watch @Samsai play some of the beta branch on Sunday, and there seems to be a lot updated in terms of sound, fight animations and so forth, so I imagine when it does get rolled into the main branch it'll be quite the change.

There aren't nearly enough cooks like this guy teaching people about sourdough.

I admit that working with a 70-80% hydration dough is pretty fun, but this is the stuff I wanted to make way back in March when this whole yeast thing got rolling.

US Pol, wild predictions 

I love bread recipes that are titled "NO KNEAD" and then they basically do Rubaud kneading to incorporate everything and develop gluten, followed by several rounds of folds which are basically a form of kneading.

By contrast, King Arthur Flour has a recipe where you just mix everything well, let it stand for a couple of hours, then stick it in the fridge for up to a week before baking. Now that's a no-knead bread!

US Pol, statements regarding bounties 

Something nice for supper tonight. Shrimp scampi with garlic bread.

Not bad, although if I make it again I really need to dial back the lemon.
