Often I got questions like "Why does it work so slowly?", "Is
it possible to fix it?" during work with that or those programs. After
Linux cluster was launched in NSU users asked me to adopt their programs
for this system. Looking throw the program's source code I found
constructions which weren't optimized at my standpoint. Some programs
were accelerating up to several times and one program was proofed so it
could solve the problem for the reasonable time on an ordinary PC.
I got a lot of non-optimized source codes, so I could write some
instructions on program optimization.
It was boom of digital photo in Russia and in Novosibirsk as well.
I like making photo, but I didn't like waiting for the film would developed
and photo would printed. Well, appearance of digital cameras have changed
I bought my first digital camera (Nikon CoolPix 2000) in 2003 and
I changed it on Canon PowerShot A70 in a year later. A lot of photos have been made ever
since. Some of them are great (you may find my public collection in the
"Gallery"), other are
smoothed and ill-composed. Two pictures of mine were published in the regional newspapers
"Nauka v Sibiri"
You can find my photos on www.fotolia.com and
I took an interest in graphics after installation of CorelDraw 3 on our
home PC. I was inspired with the easiest way of drawing pictures. I
could spend much time in learning examples in the cook-book and
repeating it on PC. I copied post cards and helped father with drawing
chemical installations. Than I learn bitmap graphics. Photoshop and GIMP
(Photoshop like editor in UNIX) often were used by me to correct
pictures from digital cameras.
