1 Round two;
3 We've got a new lead russian translator, Alexey Chumakov (achumakov).
5 Feel free to harass him, make him tell you dirty words in russian, and
6 make 'em do a bit of work in addition.
8 Some background info provided from him-
10 I am 30. I was born in Kiev, Ukraine, and now live in Moscow.
11 Russian is my mother-tongue. I am married almost 12 years, and we live
12 together with our beautiful 10-years-old daugher.
14 I am spinning in a computer world over 20 years. Grew up with Amstrad
15 and DEC MicroVAX, Atari, Commodore and Russian EC (IBM 360 clone).
16 Then moved to PC and Mac, _but_ at that time completely missed Unix/Linux
17 world as I had to lead some L10N projects then was CIO for the large
18 non-IT company. Now I am the head of IT outsourcing department for
19 Russian system integrator.
21 Localization is rather my hobby together with the applied linguistics,
22 usability and psychology.
24 Since K. Arkhipov ([14]voxus@g.o) had installed Gentoo 2004.3
25 on my home desktop (it was a Christmas joke ;), I am in fact reviving
26 the GDP Russian branch to promote Gentoo Linux to the Russians and to
27 learn it myself while maintaining docs translation ;-)
29 Everyone give Alexey a warm welcome.
