Salute

face

Hi, my name is Valentin, and my legal name is Valiantsin Kavalenka. I was born in 1985 in Belarus and I will never write here my death date, don't even ask me. I work as a Java Server-side developer, and I do love programming. Currently, I live in Calgary, Canada.

This site contains something about me, something that was made by me and shared with humanity. Humanity.., do I like it? Let's say I have mixed feelings, though I love the song!

I love to play computer games and have spent a lot of time playing Quake and Unreal Tournament series, but now I am more into Heroes of the Storm and do not have much time for playing. Also until March of 2018 I took part in developing games at ZeptoLab. My nickname is "Male" sometimes with the tag "stInc". This tag is now quite senseless because I suppose I am the only one who still uses it. "stInc" means "Starfuckers Inc", or sometimes it may mean "stink" :p

Here are some sayings I like and maybe they can say something about my personality:
  • "...it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!", [Lewis Carroll, "Alice Through the Looking Glass", 1871]
  • "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.", [Benjamin Franklin, Pennsylvania Assembly: Reply to the Governor, 1755]
  • "Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig.", [Robert A. Heinlein, "Time Enough for Love", 1973]
  • "When the going gets tough, the tough get going.", which was ridiculously interpreted in South Park
  • "Do your duty, come what may."
  • and some lyrics
