Hi, I'm Vlad, a programmer living in Switzerland, currently working on an unreleased systems programming language. My plans for 2022 are to study philosophy and meet like-minded people, so I'm glad to be a part of Merveilles! :)

I'm working on the standard library of the language we're developing. Here's datetime::arithmetic, a lot of fun to work on :)

@ritualdust I love the dithering on your website, it looks super cool! I wanted to ask: what algorithm/tool are you using? I haven't managed to get dithering that looks as good.

Prof. Stephen Hawking, the last comment on reddit:

“If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.”

Happy 80th birthday Prof. Hawking

I'm grateful to have been able to see some snow this year. I feel like it used to snow a lot more ~10 years ago.
