this person open sourced their game https://github.com/a327ex/BYTEPATH and wrote up a pretty good thing about the whole process of making it (with Lua) https://github.com/a327ex/blog/issues/30 which should be accessible to anybody with some programming basics / done some Lua basics tutorials
💜 this sort of thing
I'll always remember this pandemic as that time companies and organizations proved that they were always completely capable of implementing every single thing disabled people have asked for in the past, but actively chose not to do so.
I'm not having a good time.
I've also found out that settings are stored in little containers according to the resolution I choose to use (and that I also have to deal with resolution incompatibility between my ThinkPad and my TV if I want to use full HD.) Oof.
I got so used to a reality in which my professional work would never be relevant to my academic work that I didn't think much of it when I finally switched to Information Systems.
It's a tad weird when certain containers of my life "merge"—I was so used to keeping my professional life and my academic life far from each other I didn't realize things would become very different when I switched to a major more aligned with what I do.
Our director saw me speak publicly in 2018 (at the first Workshop ADAs my now faculty promoted). I was still a Mechanical Engineering undergrad, and my work and major didn't exactly mix very well.
This actually makes me worry even more about how the dynamics of emergency remote classes will play out in August—a friend who is a university professor was just telling me that for every 1.5 hours she spends giving a lecture remotely she feels as tired as she felt when she did it on campus for 3 hours in more normal times. This is totally a new kind of exhaustion nobody was ready for.
I spent nine hours creating an one hour workshop that was livestreamed—so I didn't have to worry about editing or anything like that—and I felt completely drained afterwards. I don't think I'll be able to do anything this weekend but trying to recover from this.
I'm trying to make open source a better, more accessible place for everyone. http://pronoun.is/they
