Hello! I hope you’re having a nice day. Is that a new haircut? Don’t worry, I can’t actually see you. And if you don’t have hair, sorry for making things unrelatable.
My name is Domino and this is my personal blog. I am a computer addict who works, eats and sleeps in Canada, and I have fun doing other things too—though rarely outside my country. I speak French and English, I like Pepsi and Coca-Cola equally, and on Wednesdays I wear pink. I also make liberal use of the Oxford comma. As you might have figured out, I’m not very serious when I don’t have to be. This blog is the place where I write about technology, gaming, ethics and linguistics. This is also where I share the poetry and song lyrics I write in my free time.
The colors on this website are carefully generated using HSLuv, an adaptation of the CIELUV color space, which provides an intuitive way to generate colors of specific perceived lightness. I studied the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, experimented with various tools and figured out a way to generate palettes I liked which respected the Level AAA recommendations for text contrast. I also took extra precautions for people who are color blind by making my palette monochromatic. I can’t afford to go over everything, but if you rely on accessibility tools to browse my website, I’d like to know if there’s something I can do to make that easier for you.
The font I’m using is Domine. I simply had to use this font—something about it just sounds like me, haha! It has more breathing space and shorter serifs than Times New Roman and is less curved than Garamond, making it a much better choice for articles meant to be read on a computer screen.
Now go have some fun!
