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 Russia, Moscow, but I want and have plans to move to 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, especially Quake and UnrealTournament series, and at the present time, I take part in developing new 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 with this tag, but I like 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
