Find me for a :flan_molotov:​ sticker if you haven't been given one! I'm carrying several on me.

I'm the one with the ridiculous grey backpack with orange and pink flowers. :flan_guns:

Many lessons from accessibility talk by @stsp but one key point is that unreliable software is inaccessible. e.g. If the login manager crashes, we just enter our password again. If entering passwords is difficult, however, this becomes a serious barrier.

My client is looking for an outside firm to audit the security of the project we're finishing: and apps with a backend. He's saying words like but I'd be happy with a simple code review.

Does anyone on my timeline offer such a service?

New store is live at grabby.space \o/

These are the new items in the sticker section! (They are also marked in the dropdown).

A 3" :flan_umbrella: sticker, a small 1.25" :flantifa: pin and a 3" window cling of a flan throwing bric... I mean, of a flan building a brick wall and abiding by local laws.

Also lots of original artwork and some inktober prints. :flan_thumbs: All Gumroad sellers keep 100% of their profits today, so it's a good day to check in on your favorite creators!
