Programming a DOS Twitch Bot: Part 6 https://diode.zone/videos/watch/a7c12b0b-cb00-4006-9037-e534294344f8
the whole accessibee thing is a disgusting rabbit hole
lewdish, nude art, commission stuff, kink stuff
the one person who has commissioned me hit me up again, and this time it was [hushed voice] L E W D
anyway if you want commissions from me, i might take them (hour based sessions and pay on that, so if you want more work i can always do more)
coloring im not as confident in, but this is my latest commission of that sort
making it public so i can pin it coz im proud of it
VOD where I make logic gates in Blockland game is up! For the impatient, skip to 03:50:40 https://diode.zone/videos/watch/22853604-aa6b-416e-87ad-35baf2700cc1
covid, in-person meetings
Look, I know folks are all excited about being double vaccinated and want to throw things to 2019-levels of normal, but until we figure out vaccine effectiveness against the variants and whether folks will need boosters to keep their effectiveness I'm going to say that large in-person gatherings are about as irresponsible as they come.
That goes for users groups, schools, and all of the other things that believe that Fall is when we'll be in our vaccinated wonderland.

Installed #Arch with #Gnome 40 over the weekend, and I must say, since the last time I tried using Gnome (I think around the 3.36 release), it's now definitely much more responsive, even when running the #Orca #ScreenReader. #Accessibility still isn't perfect (I'm looking at you, Settings app sidebar), but this is a huge improvement, and I think I'll be sticking with Gnome for a while.
VOD of today's stream is up, starring a Windows game named 'Snow Queen': https://diode.zone/videos/watch/47971c8b-05bf-4f64-8793-9aa6522e8cc8
i don't see why in the age of UEFI the BIOS can't include a screen reader. you have fancy UIs, you don't have sound? at least document your UI then in a manual and add hot keys for navigation. like what the hell dude
just spent two days working with my friend to re-enable uefi in their bios, hinded by the fact that the bios is inaccessible to low to no vision people. having to tell people what keys to press then where to point the camera and then guess the tab order of elements and whether something is focused over potato quality images is hell
re: powershell horror / pretty much totalyl unrelated
@jookia @SyrupSlushie UTF-16 is worst-of-both-worlds. Unlike UTF-8, it's not backwards-compatible with ASCII or space-efficient as an encoding. However, it's also not fixed-width either. Plus, it's also endianness-dependent (again, unlike UTF-8).
There's a reason nobody but Microsoft uses this piece of garbage. But, true to form, given a range of solutions, Microsoft will pick the worst.
