It took almost a year but @intersex and I finally got around to installing my custom made 3D printed freezer latch. No more gorilla tape holding my overstocked freezer shut!

How to make a website ADA compliant

I was recently asked by a friend about how to make a website ADA compliant. After doing some research investigating this, I found that it is possible without too much difficulty. The ADA is an act that requires websites to be compliant with guidelines designed to make the site useable by people with a disability.

There are several tools online which can be useful in making a website ADA compliant. WebAIM is a helpful tool, as it checks the website for accessibility issues and shows the code that needs to be fixed. For this site, compliance was as simple as fixing contrasts, adding transcripts, alternative text, and adding titles to links. The main fixes that needed to be made were making text on buttons and the navbar higher contrast.

This website should be ADA compliant now that I have made these changes. It's also better to have the changes made, as it makes the site easier to use and more informative. I have found this text.rsplit(' ', 1) to be very helpful in Python, as I can take a certain length of text and get all but the last word (which was cut off). This is how I fill in alt descriptions and titles.

I designed a 3D printed chain, as seen on this cat. The chain prints all in one piece, with the segments attached to each other. However, finishing the chain after printing requires some work. The chain prints with a lot of support material, so the support material has to be cut and pulled away from the print to create a working chain. However, as visible in the below picture, the chain is functional and relatively robust.

I draped it over a cat for the picture. Unfortunately, I don't have many pictures of this chain at the moment, but I may print another one in the near future. I've been having a lot of fun with my 3D printer designing and printing various things including this pretty awesome chain. Thanks for checking it out.

I'm sharing something special with you today. Below is another song from my upcoming album, "Quarantine Recordings" by Jasper Camber.
This is a special song because it is quite a bit longer and it has some fabulous chords in it. I created some really unique and uplifting piano chord progressions by using OpenChords and Ableton and added synth riffs and other instruments to create an electro-orchestral soundscape. Please enjoy the song by clicking or tapping the play button below. This song will be released tomorrow on Spotify and other stores. There are links in the /music topic to the pre-saves and links for the release tomorrow. My next music release after tomorrow will be March 6!

I created OpenChords music lab with the dream of making music more accessible. I wanted to make it easier to write what previously seemed to me to be complicated chord progressions. OpenChords simplifies the writing process and is also a great learning tool. You can play chord progressions, transpose the key, invert the chords, and add seventh, ninth and thirteenth for a lot of unique variation and sounds. I recently added some new features making the app more responsive and more fun, and I also added piano sounds to the web version (soon to come to mobile). It's definitely worth checking it out. OpenChords is available in a web browser or as an Android app.

Being as I added titles to posts, I need to make a change to some of the existing titles to make this work well. Titles need to be less than 70 characters to be optimized. I will be adding titles to most of the longer posts to make them search-engine-ready, and I have already done some of this. You may notice this is causing posts to get out of order, not to worry, this will only affect some of the posts.
Actually, further looking into this I discovered there is a good way to add titles without having to make them on the first line only. To do this, I used an if statement checking if the length of the first line, the title, is 70 characters or under. If it's not, use text.rsplit(' ', 1)[0] and the first 67 characters of the line followed by ... in the title. This takes all but the last word of a string that's too long for a title and then adds ... to the end of it. This keeps titles under 70 characters and they don't need to be separated from the rest of the content. However, if you don't want a "..." to show up at the end of your post, use a title on the first line 70 characters or under. Also, note that the description is recognized as the second line.

What is Uglek? Uglek.com is a simple social media site.

Share anything you like here, like, follow, and build a following. I built this site using Flask, at flask.palletsprojects.com. Flask is a really nice microframework for creating websites like these. I want to make this a place to share my work and interact with fans. You are welcome to post anything you like here, just keep it appropriate.
I've been adding lots of new features and making fixes to the site. I know you may be wondering why this site was down, and I will explain thoroughly in further posts. Previously, the site suffered a cyber-attack where no user information was compromised, but the site was plagued by bots and spam. There were few real users on the site, even though it had over 50,000 accounts. It used this same domain name.
Previously I wasn't letting users share images on the site, only allowing them to be linked in, but now I have added the feature of image uploads so the site will have lots of nice pictures to look at. I'm going to post more about my music, work, and life, and I hope you will too.
This will be another interesting and hopefully more successful attempt at putting some content together. I would like to try to get this site monetized with Google AdSense in the near future and even pay top users a share of the ad revenue, but I won't be showing too many ads. This is a space to explore and learn, as well as share with your friends.
Please enjoy uglek.com for free. Thanks for reading!
