My T-Shirt Design

UPDATE MARCH 2013: T-shirt design updated with new domain

I designed a Web Axe t-shirt on a neat new website, (although I haven’t tested the accessibility). ooShirts is an apparel startup company located in Berkeley, California. I hope to give away a couple Web Axe t-shirts sometime soon, maybe at CSUN 2012. And you can always order your own!

Fixing Alt – MacGuyver Coffeemaker

No coffeemaker and need coffee?! So you search the web and find an article about brewing coffee MacGuyver-style, but can’t access the large image which contains the vital points. Lifehacker’s article Brew an Emergency Cup of Coffee with Two Paper Cups and a Filter is practical and fun, but the image containing the crucial steps is missing alternative text. So to save my fellow coffee fans in a time of crisis, here’s the alt text:

  1. Acquire 2 paper cups, 1 filter, boiling water, a cutting instrument.
  2. Cut one cup towards the top so that it creates a ring at least 2 inches tall. Place the filter over the other uncut cup.
  3. Slide ring down over the filter, which is sitting on the uncut cup. Push down until small amount of filter is visible on all sides.
  4. Place desired/available coffee grounds in the cup over filter.
  5. Begin slowly filling open portion with near boiling water. Do not over fill and occasionally stir.
  6. Brewing may take anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes including set up and brew. However, it’s a hell of a lot better than having no coffee at all.
