Did a minor update to the "'Odd' Autistic Behaviours and Why We Do Them" article, explaining why autistic people tend to inexplicably change the subject to ourselves during conversations so often. I am working on a MAJOR autism-related article that I hope to be done with soon, and it occurred to me that with all of the personal anecdotes littering it, I should make a note clarifying this tendency beforehand.
I find these interesting; I work with children with such so hearing an adult lay out their experience gives me insight into possible ways the children might be feeling.
Thank you so much, @vencake! I seriously appreciate that you are open-minded enough to want to hear from actually autistic adults such as myself! There is so much misinformation out there because of how the mainstream narrative around autism is dominated by non-autistic people, so hearing you say that, especially considering your profession, makes my heart sing. (:
Took down the Christmas theme that was on the front page in light of Russian Christmas and New Year's having passed, added seven new links to the Dock, and fixed some broken links on the Autism section. Hopefully, I am not scaring too many pink-phobic visitors away with the default aesthetics of the front page...
the pink/purple colour schemes r beautiful to gaze upon every time i visit ur site
Aww, thank you very much, @oumolo! I sincerely appreciate that.
Wrote a follow-up article to my original Intense World Theory article, explaining dyspraxia via the lens of the theory, and proposing a new, more accurate and informative definition for the autism spectrum via the findings of the theory.
bruhhh you bring out some awesome analogies in these articles
Thank you, my friend! ^-^
I had a chance to read thorugh your latest autism writings properly and they're awesome. one thing that's come up for me when pondering all the complexities of neurodivergency is that the whole ideo of judging intelligence by Western linear logical IQ criteria is very limiting, as it doesn't take into consideration visual, sensory or emotional intelligence.
i have younger extended family members who can hardly read or write and are considered disabled yet they are extremely creative and gifted in other ways..
Every time you release a new autism article, I learn another thing about myself. I didn't know that there was a word for why I was dangerously clumsy and had such difficulty learning physical tasks as a child (still do!) Thank you for another great addition to your growing autism library.
Thank you so much, @sauerbaker! I sincerely appreciate that. It never fails to make my day to hear that I have managed to help someone else with this information!
"...do not use Internet Explorer": Koshka, why... :'(
@lolwut Sadly it does not support CSS animations, so a number of things on this page will not even show up in Internet Explorer. Same with my other DOS game fan-shrines. It is not something I can do anything about. ):
I was simply making a little joke; you had already explained in your first comment why visitors should not use Internet Explorer to view the page. The fan shrine is so excellently made that I didn't mind starting up another browser just so I could view it properly.
Thank you, my friend! I just wanted to make sure as my remark may have come off a tad abrasive. I was actually running out the door when I put the update up and trying frantically to get all of the boilerplate stuff done ASAP to avoid being late.
After a month's worth of work, my ZZT game Santa's Advocate is finally available for download! Many thanks to jvlfools @lolwut, and Surlent for beta-testing and providing lots of helpful feedback towards making the final game better! Also added a nightmare I had last night to the Somnium and fixed the mismatched EV/PPDV links in the ZZT games reviews sections (thanks to @holeinmyheart for catching that.)
wow. you've convinced me of the versatility of zzt as an art form https://holeinmyheart.neocities.org/misc/sadvocat.txt
Thank you so much, @HoleinMyHeart! You just made my day! I must reference Newton's quote about seeing far because he stands on the shoulders of giants, as it took many legendary ZZTers of decades past to really show just how much can be coaxed out of this seemingly limited engine. I'm very glad you liked the love story, as I honestly had a lot of doubts about whether it would turn out good. (:
Happy Winter! I fixed the broken link to my Santa's Lil' Helper ZZT game (thank you to @lolwut for pointing that out!!), added a new dream to the Somnium, and delayed Santa's Advocate by one day to Christmas Day to allow myself more time to work on it and the beta-testers more time to play through it.
I'm currently going through a quiet dream phase where I haven't written any down for a while, but last night I recall that I was stargazing in one with my brother, and a few nights ago I was having a meal with Joe Rogan.
if u read this - just letting u know i think u switched the "edible vomit" and "ppdv" links on the reviews page
@HoleinMyHeart Thank you so much for pointing that out! I will have to fix that as part of tomorrow's update with Santa's Advocate, at this point.
Put up an announcement regarding my upcoming ZZT game, Santa's Advocate (and finally added a description to the ZZT page), and the upcoming Jazz Jackrabbit 2: Christmas Chronicles Fan-Shrine, Burrowsville. I am humbly requesting beta-testers for Santa's Advocate if anyone has an interest in DOS games and/or psychedelic comedy, as it will likely be my last and best ZZT game. Please let me know if you are interested.
Apologies for not commenting on anyone's updates for weeks. Santa's Advocate has truly monopolised my free time as I rush to get it done on time for Christmas Eve. This is also the reason I abruptly stopped updating. It has become an obsessive priority for me now that it largely outgrown the modest original vision I had for it.
