Off topic.

It's interesting that in our times even pure engineering problem never ends up in a perfect solution every
professional would like! Like geologists never can agree where shore line goes, mathematicians never agree what
a number is and, finally (or initially), philosophers never agree what a human being is.

Alexey, you know perfectly well that we appreciate your work and our cooperation and relationship in general.
I'm sure it will not take long till you'll be called :)
