CSS stuff 

Writing CSS in 2022 is like ooooh, wide support for ✨ CSS grid! ✨ clip-path! ✨ columns! ✨ and at the same time uuurgh I want subgrid! 😭 and shape-inside! 😭

And because the answer involves not just creating the directive, but also subclassing the rst2html5 writer, now I remember why I unhelpfully left it as an exercise for then-future-and-now-current me. *cracks knuckles, cracks neck* I can do this.

I was searching Stack Overflow for a relatively obscure topic (creating custom directives in reStructuredText) and when I found the most helpful answer I realized it was one I had edited a year ago. Thank you past me and also sorry I forgot about this.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Young Justice spoilers, pregnancy 

Are we gonna talk at all about the fact that Young Justice season 4 is not only giving us wholesome gay content with Wyynde + Kaldur, but is also emphasizing La'gaan's polyamorous marriage with Coral and Rodunn and also they're expecting a child??!

One of my main uses for twitter is kawaii accounts like "foxes" and "cats with jobs" and "raccoons hourly" so if anything similar exists on here please recommend 🙏🏻

English or Français is best. Puedo hablar un poquitito de español pero muy lentamente. Nur kann ich ein bißchen Deutsch sprechen. Slowly getting started on Arabic and even more slowly on Tagalog.

Judging by my twitter feed, what you may reasonably expect from this account is: puns, memes, wiki stuff, random thoughts, and (mis)adventures in gay dating.

I'm just trying to leave people and places with a little more wisdom, beauty, and kindness than I found them with.

I love to learn and read about a bunch of stuff. I practice without guilt and I'm slowly making my way through my ever-growing antilibrary. I recently got into . I'm probably building something out of bricks right now, or doing , or trying not to maim myself learning . These days I'm spending a lot of time rebuilding my outdated website.
