Image snapped by yours truly on a business trip to Samara, Russia. This is the location of the first signalized I/S in Samara, est. 1947 (green sign). Local vodka (Rodnik) store in background... "What?! You don't like photos of intersections?! Pass the orange juice!" <g>

Besides sitting in traffic 5 days a week, I'm a civil engineer 8-12 hours a day. The remainder of my time is spent with my wife (upgraded girlfriend, I think), tooling around in my Integra GS-R, playing with as many digital toys I can get my hands on, and listening to my nagging parents give me advise. (Don't they already know I know *everything*! <grin>) Of course, these activities are not mutually exclusive...
Still trying to find that 6-figure ski bum or couch potato salary.
Oh yeah, Perl fits in here too. Why else would I be here! ;)
