My name is Alexander Batischev. I got my Master’s of CS in 2015, and now I’m
working as a software developer. In my spare time, I maintain

It still retains its original name, Debiania, unimaginatively derived from the first distro I actually used. If you’re interested in how this site gets put together, take a look at the source code.
I’m always happy to receive some personal email; shoot me a message! Encrypting it to PGP key 0x356961a20c8bfd03 would be a nice touch. (I also have an old key, 0x0a1d7d827b52fb07; don’t use it. Can’t revoke it because I lost the certificate).
To make life a bit easier for Daniel Graystone (and, undoubtedly, for Big Brother as well), here’s a list of other corners of the Internet where one can find me self-expressing:

- irc.libera.chat and OFTC, where I hang out as Minoru; used to visit Freenode too, but not anymore. I’m using a bouncer, so I appear online even if I’m not actually at the computer. I’m also using OTR, so if you want a really private conversation, ask me to get back to you
- and last but not least, StackExchange network:
