hi! i'm mehbark, which isn't all related to my real name (unlike a certain random student on github with a very similar username that i happened upon months ago)

i like software a lot in general (hardware is such a pain), but i also love humanity (platonically).

Obviously, the main shortcoming of the Scratch development ecosystem is the lack of a robust cryptography library.

Until now!
