Well, I'm not bran-spankin-new, but new nonetheless.

I'm originally from Moscow, Russia. We moved to the USA when I was ten. I've maintained my first language pretty well. You won't detect an accent in my speech, and (more importantly) hopefuly not in my writing.

Went to college at RPI, which is near Albany, NY. BS Chemical Engineering, Minor in Philosophy in 2003. Now I work as a Research Engineer.

I've been writing on a "regular" basis for the past six months... but, off and on for most of my life (all 24 years of it).

Favorite authors in no particular order:

Frank Herbert, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Douglas Adams, OSC, Vladimir Visotsky, Leo Tolstoy, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Thomas Hardy.

Anyway, big HI to everyone old and new. Thus far Hatrack has been a great experience. Really looking forward to learning from all of you.

If you had an accent in your writing, I'd be slightly concerned.

Douglas Adams! Pure awesomeness! I heard they're going to make a movie out of Hitchhiker's Guide, and I don't know whether I think that's a good thing or a bad thing. Probably a bit of both. It's going to be hard to catch his wit on film, that's for sure.

Anyway, glad to meet you!

Hi, Shi! I'm new here myself.

One of my friends in high school wanted to go to RPI, so I'm vaguely familiar with it (I used to live downstate, in the Ithaca area).

Speaking of Douglas Adams, shoe stores are beginning to open and close around here at an alarming rate. Are we nearing the Shoe Event Horizon?

Yeah! HGG is coming out Arpil 29. I can't wait to see it...

Martin Freeman is cast as Arthur Dent. He was great in The Office (not Office Space, The Office, it's British). That was an awesome show, very funny.

Anyway, thanks for the welcome.
