It's been a long time since I write to this blog.
Now I'm pleased to announce my first landscape photography book: Verso l'orizzonte.
Verso l'orizzonte is a travel in the land of Abruzzi and Molise (Italy), a green land with mountains, ponds, countries and villages that awaits you. The book spaces through the seasons and shows you red sunsets or strong and cloudy environment.
Take a look at the full book preview and also buy your copy directly from blurb.

someone knows about my passion for the photography world. I love to take photos of my places and naturalistic landscapes and even my equipment is for turists I'll do my best to gain experience and correct errors any time I take a snapshot.
To show you some of my best works I've opened an account on the microstock portal DeviantART.
I hope you like these environments :)

It's been a long time since I've released something that smells of software :D
Tonight I' glad to release a small midlet (obviously GPLv3) that is a phonebook with encryption for your cellphone.
SecurePhonebook is a J2ME software so you can use it on your java2 cellphone. I use it in my Nokia 5000 and it seems to work well.
The software is beta so just play with it... and I'm not responsible of any damage and I don't assure the data security. The encryption is password based (DON'T USE THE DEFAULT PASSWORD) and the algorithm is that: http://www.winterwell.com/software/TEA.php
I've developed this midlet... that is my first midlet in one evening so don't think that is well coded... it's not Y_Y
To download the source and the binary (that you can insert in you cellphone with the cellphone proprietary software) download this file

ho aperto un nuovo blog per scrivere pensieri su tecnologia, natura, linkare fotografie e altro...
Diciamo che si tratta del mio spazio personale come i tanti che ho avuto (più che altro adattati alla banda che avevo a disposizione).
È tutto in italiano ovviamente.
Se volete seguirlo andate pure su questo link: http://bitnwoods.wordpress.com/
Questo spazio rimane per informarvi del software che rilascio e le guide che scrivo (una su cui sto lavorando ora).
I've opened a new weblog to talk about myself, publish photos and other things.
If you want to follow my discussions... but only in Italian :)
The target of this space doesn't change. Softwares and tutorials (one I'm working now)

basically when I'm not studying I do some programming but software is not the only thing I love to do in my spare time!
I love to walk through my woods and mountains and take photos of the landscapes (also carving wood and play tin whistle, cooking, reading... and more! :D ).
I've uploaded some photos on picasa and panoramio (here you can see some landscapes of the mountains and woods near home).
I'm also starting to trace some small paths in Scodanibbio woods with my brother's GPS to assemble a map :)
So no softwares and tutorials this time... but enjoy the pictures

my friend told to me to try twitter.
Usually I'm not attracted by social networking (I've a site and an email... what else??) but this time he convinced me to sign on twitter.
So this is the link if someone is interested to my tweets (maybe someone exists... -_- )

Providing the full path of a file like

here is an example of execution
giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python filebelong.py /usr/lib64/libglib.a
giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python filebelong.py /usr/bin/lshal
giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python filebelong.py /bin/ls
giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python filebelong.py /bin/cat
giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python filebelong.py /usr/lib64/kde4/amarok_service_jamendo.so
giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python filebelong.py /usr/lib64/vattelapesca.so
File /usr/lib64/vattelapesca.so not belongs to any package

To everyone who look here, I'm ok!
The earthquake was an experience that we havent never seen.
Preparation and lots lots lots lots of fortune has made me, my brother and other peoples alive.
But many peoples have lost everything. Also their life.
But lots of peoples now need help. Don't trust of sites born by stupid peoples.
To help with money the victims of earthquake go to governative sites and look for SMS number or bank account to donate.
Now I'm far from l'Aquila but we have to continue to help the victims of the 6 April still alive.

I'm really pleased to release JKeyring.
JKeyring is a password manager written in Java with the goal to make you able to travel with your password and use them in security respect to keyloggers.
With JKR you are able to create an encrypted keyring and requesting password that will be stored to your clipboard.
Simply paste them on the login field and clear the clipboard.
Keyloggers will take only the CTRL+V :P
JKR is released under the GPL3
I'm not responsible to any problem related the use of JKeyring, even password stolen! Use this and use the brain!
Have a nice day!

Someone ask to me how to play some melodies with tin whistle. Unfortunately I play by ear and without any sheet. So I've made some tutorials to show how to play directly with zooming on fingers and slowing the melody.
Check it out! And remember that the original sheets are probably different from my versions.

Questa volta non è una mia applicazione o un mio progetto ma ritengo doveroso segnalarlo ugualmente.
Apre infatti lo SlackyStore dove potrete confezionare magici (e un po nerd) regali per voi e per i vostri amici appassionati della filosofia Slackware e puristi di GNU/Linux.
Acquistando un prodotto dello Slacky Store si dona automaticamente una somma per aiutare il mantenimento della community e dei mille servizi che offre.
Le immagini e in generale i loghi che arrecano gli articoli (maglietta, cappelli, tazze, felpe, borse per la spesa e per il tempo libero...) sono state create dagli utenti della community e votate pubblicamente per scegliere le migliori.
Esistono due store. Uno è più "grafico", l'altro più "testuale". A voi la scelta.
Not a program or my work this time but I feel is good to make a message for this great initiative.
Slacky Store opens! and you have the possibility to help the community buying an article that mount the Slacky.eu logo on it.
Logos and arts in every shirt, caps and etc... are designed by Slacky.eu members and a public pole has selected the most beautyful for each category.
Purchasing an articole, automatically gives a donation to help the community.
There are two stores slackers! One is more graphic and artistic and one is more classic... and a bit command line style xD

I've written a paper to explain a tecnique that comes in my mind in the previous weekend.
It's concerned a system to make dynamic arrays composed by a list of static arrays.
As you will see in the first step you create ad array large enough to contain all your datas. When you extend the array a new node with the array extension is been created.
In this way you prevent to reallocate a new large array every time and copy all the existing datas on it.
A c++ implementation will follow ASAP
Enjoy the document. Released with Creative Commons licence

Here is the result.
We can say that is more a micro-parser than a lexer.
It use a grammar to parse a simple tag language that describes a telephone memo and generate an html page to format it better.
It's just an exercise and you can download it at
Obviously GPLv3 licensed :)

I've written a C code that implements a list usable with generic types.
To use this list you have to declare in an enum the types that you want to store in the list ad so you can arrive to generate mixed lists.
In the example I make tha case that you have a list with inside an int, a float and a struct Speed item.
If you want to use this generic list code you have to know that the code i really basic and not tested hard. Probably you have to extend him to your needs.
In the tar you will find also an example of using fully commented.

in a post on my guestbook, jerry ask to me a way to make one.
My GB was just an experiment of php before I made the cms for my blog ( see ToyLog in the Software section)
A GB like mine is really basic so I post here only the source of the gbpost.php file.
POST FILE SOURCE CODE
You have to create the file post.php with this code personalized and the file Guestbook.txt containing an introduction where next the user comments follows.
The GB returns a mail with some info.
To see my GB you can go to CLICK HERE FOR MY GUESTBOOK
To see a posting system more evolved download the php software ToyLog

Conraid also says to me that he wants to upload an i686 package on Slackers.it
Slackers.it is a new site dedicated to Slackware and "the slack" philosophy.
This site has many complements to Slacky such as i686 packages and downloadble pdf of wikislacky documents.
