I never did the #introductions thing, so here goes!
I live in Moscow, 🇷🇺 & currently study at CMC MSU.
I work at SmartDec where I write a cool static analyzer for Java & Kotlin. I'm also a tech editor at tproger.ru
I'm on the Darling team; we hack on macOS internals to make apps & programs targeting Darwin run on Linux/Android.
Good morning, lovely people! I wish you a nice day
There’s a new version of Gnomit, my little commit message editor for Linux, thanks to the initiative of @bugaevc who sent me a patch a few weeks ago. Sergey’s patch updates Gnomit to use a standard window instead of the dialog window I was using and moves the Cancel and Commit buttons to the new window’s header bar.
@b9AcE Reminds me of the time that our straggly quartet of developers saved a project that had wasted a year and millions by re-writing the front-end in a couple of weeks. It was a virtual school (the world’s first), I was in my early 20s, and I worked 18-hour days and loved it. Later, I found out it was for repugnicans who didn’t want their kids to learn about evolution in school. Ah, the innocence of youth… (& one in many steps on the path that led me to where I am today) 🤓

The tax is only applied if your selling any products that deviate from the google plan.
"...it sounds like they won't be charged for the Google apps. If OEMs want to mess with Google's preferred setup and pick and choose apps, or not follow the placement requirements, then the fees will start....
...It sounds like this is still all about making sure Google gets what Google wants from these Android OEMs..." https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/10/google-to-charge-android-oems-as-much-as-40-per-phone-in-eu/?comments=1
Also, don’t code when tired.
Oh hey did I plug the event where I'm going to be showing my game next week?
Should we break up big tech? Not if you ask economists who take money from them

RIP, Little Free Library founder Todd H. Bol
The activist that halted a deportation reasonably believed to lead to the death of of the person being forced from Gothenburg via Istanbul to the war in Afghanistan is now being prosecuted for violating the Air Traffic Act.
The defence of another's life by Elin Ersson was hailed worldwide as an exemplary act of courage, but the prosecutor James Von Reis says "I can't see anything else than this being civil disobedience".
For the act of extraordinary selfless humaneness and because the prosecutor incompetently doesn't weigh reasonable defence of life before harmlessly "failing" to follow an order that Elin says was not perceived, Elin now risks up to 6 months prison.
