Hoping for the best for Boris. . .


First of all Boris grew up in Kurgan so he had family roots there. He thought Moscow was a shithole and I think he preferred the relative isolation, although Kurgan is a fair sized city if you Google it. He also had a family business there (a clothing store) that fell on hard times hence the job change necessity. Plus with the Internet he wasn't as isolated as he would have been a few decades ago. It's a digital global village now.

Maybe because he is born there and has still a strong connection to his homeland in Siberia (which has magnificent landscapes, BTW)?

If all Russian programmers would leave their country, there wouldn't be any progress in Siberia...


Sure, that's a possibility. It was really more of a rhetorical musing. It's not like I thought he was confined to a gulag or something.

I just looked at the AlgoMusic website and it appears to be up and fully functioning. Doesn't Boris own and run that site as well?

Boris had developed a few VSTs that they sell but I believe he ended the relationship some years ago after Tim Conrardy died (they developed Atomic together). He does not own the site and has had nothing to do with running it.

I'm wondering why Bobbotov still has the M-RGT website in his signature, although the website leads to Asian social sites now... :o

BTW, any news from Boris? Still lost in Siberia?

I haven't checked my signature recently but I will remove it.

Yes, Boris is lost somewhere for sure.

...or headhuntet?

I would think his expertise with coding and programming would mean he could have signed up with a bigger developer?

Possibly, but he really only knew Synthedit. I tried to encourage him to learn C+ but he never did.

Maybe he's learning that now?
One could hope...
I think I would probably buy a 64 bit version of these.

But he knows SE very well. I still use his older plugs a lot, like Intro :tu:
