All of those. main one on home PC + powers my VPS + supplementary 32bit 
VM for testing packages/libraries.

Hey, Arch Wiki did not mention any questionnaire that needs to be 
answered! ;)

Well, my name is Michael (Михаил Страшун), age 24. I am originally from 
Latvia, ethnically Russian. Currently located in Berlin, programming in 
D for a living. No horse riding. Was quite seriously into Greek-Roman 
wrestling for almost a decade but was prohibited to take any burst 
physical load after recovering from a cerebral stroke. These days just 
do coding 24/7. Favor Internet anarchists.

Anything specific you'd like to know?

That is not accident, I do precisely know that it won't work with dmd 
2.062 - I am one of contributors to that project.
