Brennholz's Random Song Of The Month is just the best
new poem's literally just a .txt, it's 2 am and I couldn't be arsed with all this coding shit. This means it doesn't show up in the Update, so you get to figure out which one of these cruddy titles is new (hint; the one that's not in the preview image, probably). Night.
...back to apologize, that comment sounded kind of mean, just had a bad day lol
It's my one year anniversary! Scroll down on my index page for a little trinket comemmorating this occasion.
Like so many of my """creative projects""", this page was made on a slow holiday afternoon, just messing around in a new medium without any real idea of what to do with it. Unlike all those other projects, however, this page is still standing, being updated (from time to time...) a whole year after its creation.
I recognize that it's not much, but it still means a lot to me. As a birthday gift from me to you on my birthday (jesus-style), have this (barely) Interactive Fiction thing I made for a game week over the course of last week:

Happy anniversary to my favorite firewood log! The lore you've made for the world is really well thought and creative, I enjoyed it (especially the past... https://files.catbox.moe/pmiy0u.png). The game itself was a bit unsettling in a few moments, but the topics you've covered are worth of thinking about, in my opinion. And the tune in the very beginning is very catchy B-)
On a side note, your guestbook seems to have met the fate of the Underwater Boy. The server, playing the role of photosynthesis probably still have the data, but it is covered by the rubble after the shockwave (a server failure).
Thanks, dude! (^-^) Yeah that error thing happens pretty often, the software i used to make this kinda sux. I'm glad you pointed out that first track specifically, it's the only good thing to come out of my music 2000 era (ps1 music production app i used when i was 16 cause fl is too expensive and i was not aware of lmms). By the way, you calling me your favorite firewood log (awww!) has made me realize the obvious->
pun I should have based this whole website on. I'm renaming random thoughts to "Log of a log" NOW lol
goddamnit. Guestbooks are fickle creatures
You really should release an album of PS1 stuff! It would be cool to listen to it
Congratulations on your anniversary! The font of your game burned my eyes out but it was worth it : )
@saint-images I probably will at some point! @pikemalarky Thanks! :) And changing the font is added to the to do list if I make another version... (*~*)
Omg : D Yeah, I can see how having more chunky stuff would make the mix harder to hold together. Unfortunately, I can't recall what mix I used initially. Anyway, glad it was edible :)
I'm not too sure what do you mean by "this city is 67% book" (googled "100% Buch" thinking it might mean something in German, but nothing came up), but this sounds so badass I kind of want to visit your city now to see the books.
we NEED to develop the Book Rating measuring world cities based on Book percentage. This is too cool and too fun to ignore!
(yes, still thinking of it instead of working)
If we were to devise a formal algorithm, we could then implement it using some public API to estimate the Book percentage for any city. Your city can be used as base for tests (it should always return 67%)
@saint-images I think the meaning is direct, like you'd say "this chocolate is 70% cocoa" (source: my city is also about 70% book)
pike's got it right, it was just a fun and hyperbolic way to say "there's a lot of books in this city", but I love this idea of a "Book Percentage Rating" (BPC) XD
I guess that the easiest way to derive our percentages would be to assign a certain amount of points to every kind of library/book shop/swap spot, add those points up, then divide by size/population of the city, but then you would disregard the books in people's home. Since internationally conducted surveys would use up incredible sums of money, we'd have to make an educated guess of average book per person by using
existing data, like maybe average income and average level of education to test disposable money and likelihood to read respectively, though I'm not quite comfortable with the latter, cause based on my experiences with grammar school kids, that connection is pretty weak ;P
I have decrypted this. I know everything
