About Tigr

20100821-SPb_DSC3837-200x250Since I came really close to the enlightenment and it turned out to be such a useless silly thing, I am now mostly interested in growing up. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be much information on growing up available anywhere. No role models are there either. It seems to be a very unpopular subject with our civilization. Still, I do not give up hope.

On the less abstract level, I like reading, listening to music, traveling, nature. I like children. I wonder if I would be able to stop roaming the world eventually and let myself stay some place. The problem is… I want a beautiful view from my window and a clever woman… but combining the former with Internet access seems to be troublesome while latter appears to be unattainable.

The frequently asked question

I am often asked why I am called Tigr, or Tigrino. It’s all very simple, really. In the 1990s I worked in a telecom lab and we had Internet there. There was not even a web browser existing at the time but we had the IRC chat where we hanged out a lot. So they called me “tigr” in the russian spoken chats and quickly convinced me to change my nickname to “Tigr”. And that is why a bit later I registered tigr.net. And then they started to make various stupid variations of my nickname and Tigrino somehow stuck too. And that’s the story.
