My Bio

Hello! I am DeskJet Shredder... Okay, you know it already. I suppose you've entered this section of my site to find out who I really am. You are welcome!

Real Name: Anastasia (Stasia, for short). Frankly speaking, I don't like my full name 'cause it sounds like "Anesthesia". The real short name should be "Asia" (it is not the continent; it is pronounced like "Asya"), but I also dislike it.
Alias: DeskJet Shredder, Kitty Cracker, Ambidexter
Gender: Female
Age: it changes every year, you know :8-)
Date of Birth: 0*/0*/198*; the animal (according to the Chinese Calendar) starts with "R" and ends with "t"
Zodiac Sign: starts with "A" and ends with "s"
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Black
My Photo: here
Spoken languages: English, Russian, German, C++, HTML, Pascal, Focal, Java, JScript


- Why DeskJet Shredder?
- No idea! I just thought that a hybrid of a DeskJet (inkjet) printer and a paper shredder would sound funny. :8-) BTW, the picture on the main page is a "LaserJet Shredder", 'cause I did not have the proper photo when creating it. And here's the proper device:

Well, it looks more like a lavatory pan, but it is the appliance I'm talking of... :8-P

- Who is Ambidexter?
- Ambidexter is a person with the ability of using both hands equally. This rare word (even my Spell-Checker did not know it) originated from the Greek word "amphi", which means "both", and the Latin word "dexter", which means "right".

- Why Black Rectangle?
- Not just a black rectangle, but the Black Rectangle 4:3!    :8-D    4:3 is a standard width-to-height ratio for modern screens (I mean 800x600, 1024x768 etc.). The idea came into my head when I was watching a movie on my computer and wished to take a screenshot. The program did not maintain the function: instead of the desired image I got a blank rectangle 800x600 ('cause I was watching the movie in full-screen mode). Its color was totally black (C=0%, M=0%, Y=0%, K=100%, #000000, according to the Photoshop Color Picker). Since then this particular figure of this color has been symbolizing emptiness, as well as blue screen (R=0, G=0, B=255, #0000FF) symbolizes system crash.

- Why all these complicated smileys?
- They are rather simple in reality. Just imagine that there's no '8' which stands for glasses. You can see the Smiley Dictionary here.

- What the heck did you create this site? It's totally useless!
- Well, OK, after all, Black Rectangle symbolizes emptiness! What were you expecting to find here? :8-P
