A long-overdue #introductions
Hello! I'm Ivan, I live in Moscow, Russia, and study in the MSU.
In my free time I hack on various FOSS projects and play (vertical scrolling) rhythm games (4K, 7K, SV, LN, bars). My favorite programming language is #Rust. My main #VSRG is Quaver, which I am helping to develop.
I'm quite interested in tool-assisted speedrunning. I've created #TAS tools for Half-Life 1 and studied it extensively.
I've also made a Minecraft mod.
@bugaevc I was reminded recently of this excellent blogpost and I truly believe the way we've been telling people developing software in the *nix world is flawed.
"I like the idea of a faster and distraction-free web but I don’t like the idea of web being controlled and molded by one company. Especially not one that is the largest advertising company in the world.
This is the Googled-web Google wants to see you develop. The web “delivered by Google”. Your site being integrated with all the other cool Google products such as Analytics and AdSense."

System Administrator: Is there a text editor on this rescue partition?
ed: nudging me that should've been you
IntelliJ: Not now ed
ed: Not asking for a GUI editor to help, are they?
IntelliJ: ed, there's a system emergency happening right now
ed: go and see if clicking "refactor" helps

Moving gnome-shell's styles to #rustlang - https://people.gnome.org/~federico/blog/moving-gnome-shell-styles-to-rust.html
Spent some time working on libliftoff today. I think the next step will be to build a wlroots-based testbed to see how the library works in practice and check that we get actual power savings.
This is the hill I will die on. Started a bug/branch to remove libcroco from gnome-shell.
How do I go about protecting data stored on a #VPS? Say I rent a VPS and install a file syncing server on it (which starts automatically on boot-up). I'd like the files to be only accessible by the server and by me, when I log into my account, and not by someone with access to the storage allocated to the VMs. Is this even possible, in principle?
This allows you to get sub-frame latency from a surface render to presentation (currently with some manual set up), whereas by default what you get is between 1 and 2 frames of latency, closer to 2 for well-behaving fast-rendering surfaces.
