    That kinda looks like "Opa". I don't know, my eyes could be stupid.

    What do you mean ola? опа = opa

    It could be several things. Usually it is just an exclemation, close to: whoa!

    Or it could be an abbreviation for описание процесса автоматизации.

    It reminds me of folk songs where they yell "OPA!" all the time while they jump around.

    Aha! I think the person you know is named Olya, and is a cute girl?! Or a woman, anyway. Her name in Russian would be Ольга.

    If it, by utter chance, is a guy and his names IS Ola, then he ain't Russian but Scandinvian.

    Why is there a "g" in there? Shouldn't it be Оля?

    (and by the way, I wasn't trying to insult you. Sorry if you thought I was. I have a "stream of conciousness" mind sometimes)

    Ольга is a full name, and Оля is short (like Robert and Bob, for example).

    Oh, ok. That's what I thought, but I didn't want to assume anything.
