A new blog (in Italian)

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:
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)

Photos from my place!

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... -_- )

for the Slackware users I've made just for fun a small script with the purpose to find to what package belongs a file.
Providing the full path of a file like
it returns
standing for coreutils-7.4-x86_64-1.txz package

here is an example of execution
giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python /usr/lib64/libglib.a

giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python /usr/bin/lshal

giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python /bin/ls

giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python /bin/cat

giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python /usr/lib64/kde4/

giovanni@darkstar:~/findbasepkg$ python /usr/lib64/
File /usr/lib64/ not belongs to any package

You can download the script here: DOWNLOAD

I'm OK, but lets help who has lost everything

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.

JKeyring released!!

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!

Tin Whistle tutorials

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.
