I believe the last we heard from Oleg, he was moving to SF to become a techie

Think he'd already been working for a Russian tech company (don't remember where he was located exactly) and was either being transferred to their SF office or he got hired at another company based in SF. Anyway, I felt kinda bad because he acted like he wanted me to meet up with him, show him around SF and introduce him to people and I basically blew him off (pretty sure this was before I started working in the tech industry myself so it had nothing to do with career connections or anything like that). Not that I have any problems with Oleg but he and I never had any real rapport on Babble (the few interactions we had we mostly of the shit talking type- mainly on his end) so I was kind of surprised that he was suddenly acting all buddy buddy and wanted to chill just because I was probably one of the only people in SF he "knew". TBH it kinda creeped me out a little bit but again, I think he's basically an ok kid and hope he's doing alright as a SF techie if that's indeed what he wound up doing. There's a lot of immigrants here in the tech industry that are in the same boat and the few I've spoken to absolutely love it here so I'm sure he's having a blast, as long as he can afford it.
