You should never ask for anything. Never -- and especially from those who are more powerful than yourself. They will make the offer and they will give of their own accord.

-M. Bulgakov "The Master and Margarita"


I am happy that you came here and hope you won't be dissapointed. This page contains the index of what can be found on my ~sg part of this server. Browse and enjoy!

For your entertainment I recommend to start with the Psychological Test and (if you understand Russian) Russian Nerdity Test.

Entertainment. Tests

* Psychological Test
A funny short psychological test. After reading a short story you answer a question and voila - you are learning something interesting about yourself. Want to try?
Both English and Russian versions are available.
The overall results of all who have taken the test are now available.

* The First Russian Nerdity Test
The first Russian version of the well known Nerdity Test. This is not just a simple translation of the English version, the test was revised to reflect cultural differences between western countries and Russia. Although the test is pretty long, it is very worth the time spent on it.
Cyrillic font required.

Programming Contests

An international competition of programs playing Arithemetic Croquette game by Lewis Carrol. The competition ended in December, 1995. Now you can find all the information about it on this Web server. Thsi includes the rules, the results, sources of participating programs and more.
