Accessibility Updates

Since it looks like some folks have been actually reading my blog, I’ve made a pass over the site, looking for accessibility problems. I have increased visual contrast and made links within articles slightly more obvious. The comments in code samples are still under the WCAG recommended constrast level, but they’re generated by a third party syntax highlighting library, so fixing them is more involved.

Please let me know if you have any difficulty using the site!

My Recommended Publicfile Patches

While djb is perhaps best known for writing qmail, he also wrote a web server, publicfile. Like his other software, publicfile is simple and robust. I use it to serve this site, among other software.

Characteristically for djb, publicfile is pretty minimal out of the box. Here are a few patches I applied to the source to make my server faster, more flexible, and easier to use.
