Finally finished my work of making Koshka's Kingdom m*bile-friendly (aside from KamiTube and Diamondus.) In far more important and riveting news (that I learned too late to make a timely announcement about) however, TODAY IS ALL CAPS DAY, SO BE SURE TO DROP BY IRC AT #NEOCITIES ON IRC.RIZON.NET TO CELEBRATE WITH THE REST OF US!! Ɑ:
For the record, no page on the website should be loading any differently than before for those of us on real computers. I have not changed my strict anti-mobile stance, but merely decided it was worth making some compromise for the benefit of being able to educate more visitors on the very important topics of autism acceptance, Bast worship, making the Web great again, etc.
Updated The Conflagration (Jiren fan-shrine) with some notable quotes from the almighty Grey from Dragon Ball Super, and an analysis of what his desired wish might be in the anime version of the series. In other news, I'm continuing to make more and more pages work well on smaller screens, with most of the website now loading nicely(-ish) on any size screen.
A friend on the #Neocities IRC channel informed me that the image maps on the Mystery Mansion/World Map/Portal weren't working in Chromium-based browsers. It turned out that for some odd reason Chromium doesn't support the XHTML 1.1 valid way of creating them, so I had to "fix" those pages by using XHTML 1.0 Transitional standards instead. If any of you fine folks were using Chrome or something similiar and wondering
why there was apparently an entire section dedicated to a screenshot of a static Explorer games folder window, all of that should now work fine for you! Also, I validated the RSS feed and arranged the items on the poorly-hidden to-do list that is accessible from the Mystery Mansion image map in APPROXIMATE order of when the promised content can be expected. EXCITING TIMES!
Happy Autistic Pride Day, again!! Did a (longer than I anticipated) write-up about all sorts of "strange" autistic behaviours that we do, and the explanations for why we do them.
Great write-up, i'm too brain dead right now to properly express all the nuances of how awesome this is, but ya, nice
Wow, I seriously relate to most of these. Autism is so rich and complex and I hate that I was surrounded by people, including doctors, who treated it as if it were an illness! I guess being different just terrifies neurotypicals.
Koshka, I have learned more about autism from your site than from any other source, and in the process I have also become more understanding of and tolerant towards autistics. Your site is truly a valuable resource on the topic. (Also, I recognize in myself, to varying degrees, some of the behaviors you listed in this article.)
You have a knack for description! I chuckled at a few comparisons because they're very accurate (particularly the chips metaphor for infodumping- that's a very apt description). This is an excellent bit of writing.
@fragmentandreflect Thank you so much for your kind praise! I really appreciate your comment.
@cyberwitch Thank you very much!! I'm sorry that you had to go through that. It's hell having to deal with people who won't accept you for who you are and think your very self is a disease in need of "curing." It's sad that even many actual doctors are still that ignorant. I'm very hopeful that as understanding of autism continues to grow, there will be greater acceptance towards us.
@lolwut Thank you for your constant support! It jubilates me to hear that I have been able to help you become more empathetic towards and understanding of autistic folks! I really feel that the world as a whole would be vastly more empathetic towards autistics if there was a more widespread understanding of why we behave the way we do. "Everything understood is everything forgiven" to quote a Russian proverb.
@owlcollective Thank you!! I'm glad you liked it! I've been told that I have excellent metaphors; I think I just spend far too much time ruminating on patterns and similiarities in everything and unwittingly come up with far too many amusing comparisons in the process.
The entire Per-Bast and UFO sections, the most important sections of Koshka's Kingdom, should now render well no matter how small or large the viewer's screen resolution is. Was hoping to do more but unexpected IRL problems keep popping up...
Did some beautification of the World Map, inspired by some of @CyberWitch's sublime designs, and made changes to the Wildcat Den/Scratching Post to make them render well on lower screen resolutions. No changes to the look/feel were made for proper large desktop computer screen resolutions.
