RarstMy name is Andrey Savchenko. Just call me Rarst, that is long-established nickname and confidently rivals my given name by now.

I have been messing with computers for many years. Worked with them in many areas as well – from 3D modeling in aviation industry to managing help desk in heat and electricity supply company.


I have started this blog back in 2008 as my persistent place online and way to organize and share what I know and learn about IT stuff.

About what?

Since start the blog had expanded into many topics.

Where to start?

  • home for latest stuff
  • archives for nifty ways to browse around by categories, tags and more
  • search (powered by Google) through whole blog
