I am 33 (as of 2021), I was born in Omsk, Russia, but moved to the United States in 2014. On the internet i use the moniker "kuz" - which is a play on my real life name, Kuznetsov.
I picked up programming and system administration in 2003 and in 2005 I hosted a website called 9channel, it had no domain and no css at first, it was just a port on my IP adress. A year or so later I moved it to TOR. Today there is an english hideout website for some of its old members at 9chan.moe
You should consider joining and visiting the KolymaIRC, where I spend some of my time. You can say hi at irc.kolyma.org (6697 must specify tls)
Well wished! I got married on August 20th. I will take an extended break this september, im happy with everything
