I’ve only just realised that I forgot to do a proper when I first joined this instance, so here goes!
I’m Tom! I am originally from Japan, and come from a visual arts and performance background. I’m currently teaching as a high school teacher in Aotearoa, NZ.

Lately I have found a lot of inspiration from people involved in communities such as this one, and have been working on small web projects in my spare time. Thank you for having me!

Finally added an automatic dark mode to my site using CSS!

Times like these make me want to move out to the country

The environmental cost and volatility far outweighs the benefits. Centralised platforms (Venmo, CashApp et al) at least do a better job in this regard and aren’t susceptible to wild fluctuations in price and volume

Created a VM, with a little postfix assembly-like language for it, and I wrote hello world with it. Handling strings is pretty neat, I wonder if I could one-day migrate my website to it..

»If you want to build a Sunday Site
1. Write HTML and CSS.
2. Don't use JavaScript. Figure out ways to achieve something similar with HTML.
3. Automate as little as possible. Keep it manual until it hurts.
4. Sign your site with a link to your user page.
5. Have fun!

Finally had a chance to start playing with Gemini and having it as an option for my blog posts (both HTML and gmi now). What a beautifully protocol and markup!
