I actually quite miss Shrak's presence. He was a stand-up fellow, and an inspiration for myself to hone my skills. I think at one point him and I were probably considered to be of roughly the same skill level from the outside - but the honest truth is he blew me totally out of the water 99% of the time. Miss seeing the excellent discussions Plan9, Rookie, Shrak, enorbet et al would bring to the table, and how in-depth we went for the sake of customization and optimization of our workflow.
My current position at work forces me to run Windows on more than one machine - and free time is substantially limited so it's been tough to get back into Linux gaming again... Though now seems like it's probably the best it's ever been (dxvk and all)
