Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
I have to code but it’s hot. So…
I put the ice-cubes and sugar in a glass, then brew a double espresso with about half a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg in with the grounds (I use an Aeropress – anything that does espresso should work). It’s hot, but it drips slowly onto the sugar and ice, dissolving it and cooling as it goes. Once you fill it up with cold milk and stir, it’s chilled.
It turned out milder, smoother and sweeter than a two-shot americano, and the spices work better in a cold drink. Hazardously drinkable.
Ivan: /me stares at it for a while with mouth open, drooling a bit before going into stealth mode and sneaking up to steal
Nersh: but Tom, it's coffee! D:
JohnArr: Uh-oh, I seem to have dropped a shot of irish cream into mine. How tragically delicious.
Timoculous: That sounds delicious! You should do another blog where you talk about all the food you eat while developing Gunpoint.
Lack_26: This is a fantastic start to the morning and gave me an excuse to raid my spice chest (well, technically it's a tin, but I like to pretend).
Infovore » Links for May 27th: [...] Cinnamon And Nutmeg Iced Coffee, by Tom Francis "Hazardously drinkable." Need to make this at some point. (tags: coffee icedcoffee recipe drinks tomfrancis ) [...]
Stuart (the coffee guy): I work for a coffee company and iv got to say its just so easy to make Ice Coffee one or two hot shots cold milk, some syrup to add a bit of something else :) Lovly!
joxp: Dat Coffee... Personally I prefer the Kopi Luwak, the world's rarest coffee, which is extracted from Civet (a cat relative) Crap in Sumatra. Cat butt is good.
Jesse: This is exactly what I feel like right now. We have a serious heat wave going on, and I've been writing gobs and gobs of code as well. Sounds killer.
