Pinned toot

Me and @billswax have just finished and launched beta 1.0 of our new, completely written version of mundistry, an MMO game that simulates being a music artist. Check it out at mundistry.com/

I'm finding Mastodon, aside from being a great social network, to also be invaluable as a tool to post longer tweats, with a link to the full thing.

‪When is Apple going to bring smart invert to the mac? It's getting quite annoying having to change to the light theme, invert the colours, realise your desktop background is black after being completely blinded by all 3 monitors, change the background to white to fix this problem, then have to reverse everything when you're done (in other words every two seconds).‬

Theory is when you know everything but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined:
nothing works and no one knows why. ... unknown

There are a million stair-climbing wheelchair prototypes. They’re all prohibitively expensive.

A regular, correctly-sized wheelchair costs as much as a sports car. How about we address that first? Some people can’t afford to leave the house. twitter.com/mashable/status/11

I find it baffling when Americans put a T at the end of across. Can anyone explain why some of them say acrosst?

If Article 13 passes, the Internet won’t be the same again. Remember that there are EU elections in May. Vote for people that have your values.

can we pretty please just stop trying to make emoji accessible by adding alt text with the english to the emoji??? Just put the emoji character, and let peoples screen reader handle it however the users specify.

Some accessibility lessons:
- Excessive symbols and emojis (e.g. in names) are annoying. Stupid zalgo or math characters or whatever are read one by one.
- Links are spelled out with all those "slash slah colon" stuff.

Creating videos is easy. Creating great videos, not so much. A good production requires talent, time and tools. We can't do much about the first two, but we can recommend some nice tools to help you make snappy videos.

I will be there are you still looking for a job in your company and the science center and I have to go to the store and get a letter from the bank and get back to you on that one. I don't know if I can help you with that 😔😔😔

‪I really don't like people who use stacks of emoji in their usernames. It's not so bad when I'm viewing a tweat (or toot) of their's, but when twitter throws something like, user, smiling face, flag of united kingdom, sunglasses, upside-down face liked, user2, tumbler glass, cherries, blood-type A, quoted, user3, face licking lips, "Actual message," ,"user2, tumbler glass, cherries, blood-type A, ‬ added "Another bit of message ... really?!

When I first got into web dev, I used to think MySQL was called mice equal.

because my screen reader will kill you.

Why spend seconds creating input fields when you can spend days writing some javascript to get some divs and spans to work just like input fields…

I'm one of these weird people who genuinely like to help people who just keep being stupid. It never works or benefits me either, but I guess I'll keep on trying.

I just acted upon my grade 11 "positive" role-model powers by asking a group of grade 9 students how they could be so harsh toward themselves within the group as well as others.

All I got was an "oof."

I fucking hate society.

Just realized. Discord backwards is pronouncable as "Drocsid." I swear that would be a good name for a medicine.
