I’m Daphne Preston-Kendal, an undergraduate student in Historical Linguistics, formerly a software developer. I come from the United Kingdom, but I live in Berlin, Germany.
Some things from me that might interest you:
After many years (going back to about 2010, with a short break) where the ever-changing background of my homepage reflected the season of the year — green for spring, yellow in summer, orange in autumn, and blue in winter — I’ve changed. While the course from spring to autumn looked great and worked fairly well, the turn to winter and back involved going through a lot of very unseasonable shades of purple and turquoise respectively, and though I tried various solutions, none of them really worked very well.
The background now shows a somewhat rough-and-ready live simulation of the sky in my current home city of Berlin, Germany — or at least, what it would look like if the sky here were clear, which it’s not always. There are some improvements I’d like to make, which I’ll doubtless slowly integrate, much as my previous season-based code got gradual improvements over the years as well.
