cat medical care fundraising
I know there are an overwhelming number of these asks, but since this is the .cat instance, I thought of bringing this here.
This sweet boy, Monstro, is six years old and undergoing urgent surgery. His prognosis is good, but it's a big medical expense.

My #AdventOfCode solutions, if you're in to that sort of thing, are at https://gitlab.com/keturn/advent2018/tree/master/src
Except for when I'm feeling fancy and want to put a visualizer on it, that has a different set of build requirements and is at https://gitlab.com/keturn/advent2018-gdx/tree/master/core/src/main/kotlin/net/keturn/advent2018/gdx
Some silliness brought to you by GitHub's https://myoctocat.com/
Is an octocat a fursona? Do octocats have fur? I guess that's one question.
work in progress
Here's a little glimpse of my work in progress from what I've been playing with #kotlin for.
Using geometry from keyboard-layout-editor.com.
Dabbling in graphics with libktx (a #kotlin interface to libgdx), and I guess I don't understand the coordinate system yet.
The text and the red box (and the lower-left corner of the black outline) all have their x, y as 100, 100
which makes sense if 0, 0 is lower-left and positive-x is right and positive-y is up
yet a box drawn from there goes above, but the text goes below?
mostly below, that is, because part of it ascends above the y=100 line?
I love what reactji, made popular by Slack, have done for text chat and I hardly know how to converse without them anymore.
The Slack I frequent most has made extensive additions to our emoji set. But today Slack switched to using platform-native emoji and it's thrown us into disarray. https://toot.cat/media/u2XQmRj0J_VZVRmny4c
