Well, my name is Alexander Potapenko, also known as Glider or Ramosian Glider (in an official way :) ). I am the 5th course student of CM&C MSU.

'm fond of music (rock and folk), guitar and darbuka playing, programming and UNIX, being quite (but inquiet ;) ) an amateur in all of these things.


I hardly ever use ICQ. If you want to talk, but haven't got a JID, ask me for my phone number, not ICQ.
