I collect logs of the AJAX requests to a radio, so your IP and UserAgent are being stored not only by Neocities. I use these logs just to see sometimes who's listening to the radio and approximately for how long.
I'm Alexander k.a. Arav, I'm a 26 years old russian programmer-hobbyist and an operator of a Tor relay. I decided to share some part of my biography, I don't think this information may help to disclose me. Maybe only if someone who knows me will visit this place and recall some parts.
I got my first computer on 11th November 2004. I went to the Internet in mid-February 2006 via Dial-Up modem (I still have it). It was the Down of the Golden Age of a runet and the entire Internet I guess, the runet went shit after 2008 I think. Before 2006 I played games 99% of time. Everything started after I got an Internet access.
Before that I had a game console Sega Mega Drive 2 from 2000 to 2004. And way back in 1997 I had a SUBOR game console which was a Dendy (Famicom (NES) clone) that is embedded into a keyboard. Here is a nice article about it in russian, at least you can see photographs. There was a learning cartridge with a set of programs and two flavors of BASIC. But, unfortunately, I had no manual for it and couldn't get it, so I didn't become a programmer that early. -_-
In second half of 2006 I found Source SDK and began to make maps for Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source. The process has always been in the first place for me, so I didn't really finished any map. And now they are gone for years already. I finished with this hobby in 2008 or 2009.
I used to write music from time to time in 2007—2010. My main problem was monotony and incompleteness. And sound mastering never was my strong side. :) I made about 10 tracks and only 3 are survived in mp3. They're on mine FTP server. I decided to publish them. I regret of one awesome track from 2008, fuarrking viruses, it was inspired by Enigma. I have weird feelings when I listen to them. People liked them tho. I want to go back to this hobby.
I became interested in programming in 2007 when such classes started in school. My first language (as everyone's else who live in Russia and CIS) was Pascal. I then moved to Delphi 7 and later to C#. I bought a book on C++ in 2009, but actually started to use C++ in 2010. I learned C in the same year 2010. After that I learnt Python, Lua, Shell, PHP, etc.
My first time with Linux was in 2007 when I downloaded an ISO of Ubuntu from local FTP of my ISP's LAN. It lasts for the whole 3 days. Next time I used Linux (Ubuntu) was in 2010, it lasts way longer, whole half year! After that I was periodically installing different flavors on a laptop. I tried Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, Fedora, Arch Linux. Nowadays I'm sticked with Arch Linux, and use it now as a server OS, LOL.
I know it very well, I have a nice pronunciation, but I have a lack of practice in speaking. This site is a good example.
Just basics. I decided to learn it after I listened to Burzum. It just sticked to me. :) Pretty easy language to learn especially after english, I just made no effort. Jeg har ikke lært norsk på lenge, så vet jeg mindre enn før. Men, selvfølgelig, når starter jeg på ny, vil jeg huske alt.
Languages that I know much or not so worse (from better to even worse) — i.e., know some words and phrases or can only read.
Ukrainian, Belarusian, Polish, German, French, Spanish, Icelandic, Finnish, Japanese, Hungarian.
I tried once: Haskell, LISP, Ruby, Go.
Ghost in the Shell, Shaman King, Hellsing, Steins;Gate, Cowboy Beebop, Ergo Proxy, Jin-Rou, Black Lagoon, Jojo's Bizzare Adventures
WarGames (1983), Hackers (1995), Johnny Mnemonic (1995), Snatch (2000), Who am I (2014), movies with Jackie Chan, Matrix (1999, 2003), some other I can't remember now.
GTA: Vice City (my first computer game), Half-Life, StartCraft (and Brood War, didn't played much in SC2), Far Cry (1st), Portal, Freelancer, F.E.A.R. (1st), S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Grand Theft Auto 4, The Wolf Among Us, Minecraft, Terraria, Starbound, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Elite: Dangerous, theHunter: Call of the Wild.
I'm CMDR Arav in Elite: Dangerous, here is my EDSM profile, but a real list of my discoveries is in this CSV table. Alas, I lost first logs when I re-installed Windows, because I didn't know of them. I didn't play much so loss isn't that big, but I lost the name of my start system, my home. :(
I play TruckersMP mod for Euro Truck Simulator 2. You may meet me on Europe 2 server. Nickname is Arav with a tag [RU/90/REC] (usually).
I listen to everything that I'd like, from drone metal and dark ambient to grindcore. My favorites that I like almost fully are Falkenbach, Korpiklaani, Sólstafir, Lacrimosa, Enigma, Röyksopp, Nagrobki, Burzum, maybe I forgot something.
