Welcome to my homepage.

Slovenská verzia je tu.

(en) Note: as of November 2007, my mobile phone number has changed. To get the new number, replace '908' with '911'.

(unix) echo ^G; sed -e 's/908/911/g'

My original WWW homepage was created sometime in 1994, and you can access the copy (updated through the years, but basically the same) here.

Finally, in 2006, the time came to create a new version from scratch, the one you are looking at. The minimalistic approach to the formatting and style, as well as to the information content is intentional.

Given the recent trend in feudalizing the internet and ownership of (other's) human thoughts and ideas, I feel compelled to issue the following statement:
Unless otherwise stated, all the intellectual property on this page and subpages can be used and distributed according to the terms of Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. You may however discard the attribution to me, if you have a decent reason.

Something about me

My name is Radovan Garabík, pronounce (IPA) /'radɔvan 'garabiːk/ and I was born.
After uneventful childhood, marked by arrival of 8-bit computers, came fall of socialism, satellite TV, division of Czechoslovakia, Unicode, Linux, Windows 95, internet boom, spam, Viagra, mobile phones and discovery of extrasolar planets. I've been trying to hide away first by studying nuclear physics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Comenius university in Bratislava. Then I was doing some aircraft simulator programming, until I switched to corpus linguistics and currently I am working in the Slovak National Corpus of the Ľ. Štúr Institute of Linguistics in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Learn more from my personal FAQ page.

And the final remark:
If you multiply the number of letters of my first name with that of my surname and substract the date when I was born (either day or month), you'll get :
!!! 4 2 !!!
