@agateblue can we make it so album images are required if you are submitting public music on open.audio? I am tired of combing through hundreds of weird single song "albums" with no artwork or anything to discern them. Often the titles arent even right

one of the aspects that never gets brought up about programming language design is that of accessibility

i've heard multiple people, for example, not be able to read lisp due to dyslexia -- this almost never gets brought up

while lisp syntax, for example, has other implications, if you're designing a general-purpose language in 2020 and dyslexics can't read it, you should be rethinking your syntax

Participating in pekoectf with some friends. What language should I work in

Designing a website for my grandpa using his old one as a base and it is so archaic I can't believe. Not responsive, uses Cpanel back when that was its own company, doesn't work on firefox for some reason. Jesus christ

testing out tails os as a possible hub for all of my activist work and creating a replicable way to have friends do the same

Summarising my recent webdesign tips:

1. Use progressively-enhanced semantic HTML5
2. Express your UI in terms of links, <details>, & (unstyled) forms. I can't handle any more.
3. If you do want to create a different control, don't expect it to work in my browsers. And use JavaScript with ARIA to make sure it works in existing screenreaders.
4. Forms should ideally be seperate documents, especially for Rhapsode. You can write them inline & style them, but not while they're being filled out.

If you’re struggling with academia, just remember: it is opaque and unfair and conservative because it is very, very literally a medieval guild.

I have AP tests next week and I am really not excited.
