Is technical support worth its money? Not so sure.

I can’t stop wondering why the absolute majority of all support requests I or my colleagues have dealt with in the past were treated, let’s say, in a strange way. The vendor would fight, yes fight, very hard in attempt to defend itself and redirect the blame on the customer or another vendor if that […]

Work hard and it would pay off.

Surprisingly, how a long and productive day could turn all upside down and make me fill contended and refreshed even when the previous day brought a body of disappointment.

Even after 30 you could be a good student

A week ago I received a Statement of Accomplishment of Cryptography course that proves that there is always a chance for a challenge and to learn something new.

My second trip to Vladivostok

Last week I had a privilege to visit Vladivostok for the second time just one month after I’d been there for the very first time in my life. That’s a pitty, but I didn’t have enough time to go around the city extensively as I had planned initially: that was a classic “man proposes but […]
