Mink Machine

Meeptris

This is a small Tetris clone in Java, programmed for fun in a few hours during 1998. It’s fully playable but never got the finishing touch, so there are some bugs left.

The first version of this classic game was programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in 1985. The word “meep” is from the vocabulary of Theresa.

The lakes of Lombardy

"The town of Como, largest settlement around Lake Como, attracts a lot of people with big wallets. But I preferred to take the funicular up the mountain to the Brunate region, where you get a much better view of the lake."
