A teaser of a papercraft thread to come. I've just dug out old photos of this project from ~April 2015. I'm going to post it gradually because I don't have it already written up, so stay tuned!

Kate totally gets it! 🤗

in some cases, I'm pretty sure I was thinking "this is a visual pun, it'll make no sense to explain". translation: "I decided this one's not for you, people who can't see". Literally excluding people by making a decision on their behalf.

.@TwitterA11y people literally don't know that your platform has this feature! Make it *obvious*
Replying to @KenoFischer
Also, I have learned how to add alt text to images after learning that this was a thing that could be done from @thingskatedid's twitter feed.

Been working on getting my automatic NFA-to-regex generator to simplify its output. For the first time the result isn't embarrassingly verbose: ^(🐮|🐏🐏|🐘🐭|🐏🐁(🐺🐁)*(🐀🐭|🐺🐏))*(🐘|🐏🐁(🐺🐁)*🐀)?$

More folks should follow @Daniel_Nikpayuk! He writes cool C++
To all my new C++ followers, If you stick around you'll discover I often post updates to my current projects, but as an Indigenous person in Canada I also post a lot of settler colonizer critical thinking stuff. I also like to round out my feed with a diversity of RTs, haha.

I'm slightly bewildered that I've prepared the perfect response to this a year ago or so.

I’m a bit faceblind. I use descriptive audio if I’m not sure if I should recognize someone and because I tend to think everyone with a similar build and hairstyle is one person unless I see them together. If I’m unsure about alt text, I remind myself I don’t know who I’m helping.

Non-English example; there’s a store-brand sunscreen here called Sun Ozon. In my family we took to calling it “Sün Özön” which in Hungarian means “a torrent of hedgehogs”.

(Wait you might ask! Why would a filesystem flag be needed! The bytes in the file are the bytes in the file! Sure. Except when the “Unix side” is running in ASCII compat mode by default, transparently translating EBCDIC and assuming it needs to xlate your tarball’s contents.)
