I write. I . I play way too much Fallen London. I collect tattoos. I will not call posts "toots".

I like learning to be more imaginative in devising solutions to difficult problems. 🎊

wouldn't it be amazing if college/university was just like a casual thing? like it's just a place you can go for free whenever you want, don't have to apply or anything, anyone can come in and sit in on a class theyre interested in.

sort of like a library. and there's no tests or anything, it's just for if you want to know more about a subject

Seeing "Us", then starting to watch "Step Up Charlie" (Idris Elba, Netflix) has led me down a fun road of language over the last day. None of these are esp. new, but I hadn't seen them.

First, technical geekery about accents in TV/movies:

Then, Elba explaining some British slang: He's all "I was setup. I don't know anything." Then proceeds to explain Cockney rhyming slang. πŸ™„ 🀩

tota11y - an accessibility visualization toolkit
tota11y helps visualize how your site performs with assistive technologies. Check out the announcement blog post.

The process of testing for accessibility (a11y) is often tedious and confusing. In many cases, developers must have some prior accessibility knowledge in order to make sense of the results.

Instead, tota11y aims to reduce this barrier of entry by helping visualize accessibility violations (and successes), while educating on best practices.

At the bottom of the page is a "installation" section, where you can drag and drop a bookmarklet into you bookmarks to check every site you are visiting.

Recorded the final episode of Audacious Compassion today. 😿 It was tough to script and record, but it brought me some closure. We did a good thing. We can move on.

There's @PleaseCaption to help with that, it sends you a DM every time you forget so you can redraft. It's really useful.

I started using ProtonMail recently, and I notice that Gmail puts a big warning for emails originating from there. This is really insidious because it's teaching the users that any email that doesn't come from a Google approved source is sketchy.
