My self-summary
Every once in a while these things need an update, so here comes.

For once, I'll try to stay positive all the way to the "why message me" section. This is challenging, I've honestly never done it before... oh wa-wa-wait... well, no matter!

I'll make it a dialogue, because I like dialogues. Greeks were certainly onto something, when they first invented the genre.

This conversation never happened, but it could have happened. T. and N. are actual people who some times talk to me, and have been doing it for almost ten years. So, I guess I can call them friends. They don't live hear any more though, and this is why this conversation is a little bit sad. The action is placed in the hall B of the Ben Gurion airport. Three of us wait for T's and N's departure.

N: And promise you'll do the blood test again in three month, after you've taken the vitamins.

Me: sigh Yes, N, I promise.

N: You know it's important, right?!

Me: Yes, yes, of course I do. Oh, and by the way, do you remember, your prof... the paper you red to us... that thing about how you did logistic regression on those molecules...

N: T., he's changing the subject. Don't change the subject!

T: Oh, come on N. You're trying to be just like my mother!

N: Says who?

T: No, you are actually more like Thomas Malory, the man never compromised not on any little thing, and ended up in jail. For his whole life, mind you! This is not how you gain influence... Machiavelli on the other hand...

N: Oh, not Machiavelli again.

Me: Sounds like you are boarding already. I probably...

N: No, no, it's OK, we still have a few minutes.

T: But we should probably get going, all this standing in the line... I can't wait to say goodbye to this place.

Me: Right, you should be going. You take care there, well, whatever.

N: You take care too, and skype us, you know we're online, well, most of the time. Weekends especially.

T: Oh, and my site, would you have a few moments this week, I need to add Google Analytics...

And off they went. Now that I think of it, T. knows me for fifteen years. That's the longest I've ever known anyone. My parents don't know me that well (they actually don't know me at all, but that's a separate story). But we never said anything more intimate then "hey would you mind fixing a thing or two at my site" or "want to go to the movies? I hear there are aliens and fighting and stuff..."

To be direct is to be against the human nature, it's awkward and it feels like you surrender yourself. Even if you trust that person with all you have - that's nothing compared to being sincere. It becomes ever more difficult to be sincere, the more things you've experienced. It's irrational, but who says it should be?
What I’m doing with my life
I write low-quality programs for computers.
I've studied conservative arts, then liberal arts, then studied nothing for a while, then studied math, then studied nothing again, then it become now, and then I'll study math, maybe.
Because people are social, I, too, did a social thing or two in my life, but please don't count on that.
I’m really good at
Telling jokes that require too much effort to understand them.

Annoying everything that can be annoyed. This may also impact objects not normally annoyed when they are in the annoyance radius.

Finding references to programming in pop culture. For instance, did you know that Mr. Lisp from Spy Kids, who later become the T-1000 is a pun on the change of paradigm that happened in programming about decade before the movie was filmed? The transition from Lisp to C++, which especially hurt the AI field and scientific programming in general? Spy Kids has tons of references! Floop is the second theoretic programming language mentioned by Hofstadter in his Goedel, Esher, Bach.
Oh, Futurama has tons of these, and so do Simpsons of course, but Adventure Times could be the best!
The first things people usually notice about me
Couple of days ago I quoted HAL in the conversation with one of my colleagues:
Sorry, Dave, I can't let you do that.
My colleague said that this quote was "so me!".

* Used to like Pixies, Coil, АукцЫон, Doors, Tool - now you can tell I'm old.

I used to scavenge this section of profiles around OKC for new movies to torrent, but ever since OKC become very peculiar in its choice of location of the profiles one gets to see, the spoils become too scarce.
The six things I could never do without
GNU Emacs (I also need a keyboard where Ctrl key is duplicated in Capslock, otherwise I can't use the puter).

A lot of sleep.

Wikipedia.

Someone to remind me not to go to work on weekends.

Public laundries functioning 24/7.

7/12 (AM:PM) stores.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm obsessed with an idea of a new programming language for managing graph databases. I didn't make any progress so far, but I am indeed thinking a lot about it.
Second in the list is the natural language processing.
Third is the concepts of fairness and politeness as applied to distributed computing models.
Then come general AI questions.
Mars colonization.
Then random sci-fi junk.
Then I might think about how miserable I am, why don't I have any plans for the future, how I wasted all my life never achieving anything. And at that point I load up IMDB and try to find more sci-fi junk.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably watching lectures on Coursera or EDX.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have eventually answered these somewhere down the match answers, but I'll repeat to spare you the trouble of searching:
I don't have a driving license; just never tried to get one.
I have very bad front teeth, and I didn't do anything yet to fix that.
I have more aces in the sleeve to scare you if you aren't scared yet.

You should message me if
You know how girls' profiles always say that you have to be mature, responsible, not to play games (whatever that means), and especially not to like one-time sexual encounters, because if you do, then woe on you. So, why should you message me? Well, at least because I don't care how mature or responsible you are, I'm friendly to gamers and I don't see a problem if you like one-time sexual encounters.
