Hi! I'm Oleg (pronounced "Oh-Leg"). I'm an alumni of UC Davis and I never know what to put in an "About Me" section. =P
P.S. This page is probably quite a bit out of date, since I no longer reside in Davis.
I graduated as a CSE major, though have interests spread across various other (mostly engineering-related) topics such as Physics, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Philosophy, Psychology, etc...
Although I'm not yet sure as to which area in Computer Science I'm going to be specializing in, I have a very wide spread interest ranging from common things like Programming, to rarer fascinations such as Computer Security or Artificial Intelligence, to rather unusual hobbies such as client-side (read: legal) Memory Editing and finally to the absurdly ridiculous such as Pixel Art.
I would have happily minored in Physics or perhaps a foreign language (Korean, Japanese, French in that order), if I had enough time or units to accomplish this in four years, but for the better or worse, CSE has a very full curriculum.

I love sports and exercising in general, but there's of course certain activities that attract me more than others.
I am addicted to martial arts, particularly Tae Kwon Do which gets its own section. I also actively practice Wushu with the UC Davis Wushu Club. I have also, in the past, practiced Judo, Hapkido (Korean Aikido), Kumdo (Korean Kendo), Sambo, Short Staff Combat, Nunchaku Combat and Greco-Roman Wrestling (Who Hasn't...).
In high school, during my junior I joined the cross country team. I got really into running and at my top shape ran a 2-miler in 10:40 (which would be a little over
5-minute mile time for a single mile). Unfortunately I injured my knee during fall of senior year and had to sit the entire season out. Due to this I'm now fairly slow (by my own standards at least), and don't run nearly as much as before. However, I'm still addicted to Asics running shoes. =)
Biking is a more recent fascination which also has its own section.
Besides these I really enjoy an occasional game of table tennis (A.K.A. ping-pong) and Badminton. I love swimming but prefer to do it in rivers.
I'm Russian and was born in what I call the "flat, blank, middle of Siberia". Unlike the common misconception, Siberia is not like Antarctica, and penguins would die of heat there. Siberia does not have constant -1,000,000,000 degrees Kelvin (waa...aay below absolute zero) temperatures as some people seem to think. In fact, during winter it gets to about -40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit), and during the summer up to about 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit). I think it's a wonderful place to live but unfortunately Russia in a political toilet at the moment, so I'm happy that I'm in USA (especially since Obama took office). I moved to the States when I was 10 (A.K.A. year 2000), and have lived in the (southern) bay area from that time until moving to Davis.
I've been actively practicing TaeKwonDo since 2003 and currently train with the UC Davis TaeKwonDo Club.
I'm currently a Kukkiwon (World TaeKwonDo Federation Headquarters) certified second Dan black belt.
I'm also the webmaster for the National Collegiate Taekwondo Association.
TaeKwonDo plays a very large role in my life and is important to me.

2009-09-30 10:18:59 Oleg - I can totally help you out on that bike related wish list. I have Velocity Deep V's in white and can lace them to colored IRO, Formula, Dia Compe, Suzue, Dura Ace or even Phil wood hubs. We do standard lacing patterns or even some crazy ones in colored spokes if you want. I have white straps too in soma's toshi's or MKS fit Alpha's. Swing by the shop I have all kinds of stuff at the shop. —Aaron.Curtin
Thank you, I'll definitely swing by APEX when I'm ready to purchase. But for now, they're mostly on the wish list due to financial reasons... —Oleg.Lokhvitsky
2010-10-18 12:30:28 Dude, Oleg! Matloff is A+++++! >=O —MysticHLE
2010-10-22 20:41:49 Haha, no way, waaaaaaay too boring/slow.
Also, I'd only go as far as saying he knows his stats. In comp. sci. he's about 30 years behind...
But then again, even on RMP.com, his ratings differ like crazy. (Either really bad, or really good.) —Oleg.Lokhvitsky
2011-01-31 03:25:54 I like the Gaia avatar customizations for each category. Definitely one of the cooler daviswiki profiles :D —RyanMeyerhoff
2011-02-09 08:24:30 Thanks! =D —Oleg.Lokhvitsky
