About me


First of all, sorry for my english. I’m not well versed in learning new languages, despite I would like. I started to study english when I was 10 (A LOT of years ago!), but without good results. Now I’m trying to improve my english by watching all the seven seasons of Star Trek – Deep Space Nine so my english is basicly a Star Trek english 🙂

Commodore 64

I’m an italian developer working and living in Milan and I consider myself lucky because my hobby has become my work, and this doesn’t seem to be the standard case.

My computer interest are wide ranging from “low level” programming to high level analisys.
As a lot of guys of my generation, my first computer was a Commodore 64, used both to play and to understand programming.
So I started to write code in the terrible Commodore 64 basic V2 (38911 basic bytes free :-).

My second computer was a PC, based on the 10Mhz Nec V20 CPU (Intel 8088 clone): rapidly I developed a sort of disgust for the MSDos (3.11) and, obviously, for the society that branded it.

486sx

In the same time I discoverd my first compiled language, the incredible Borland Turbo Pascal 3.0 and I started to love it and to love Borland itself. OK, university time: my old 8088 clone was tired, and a brand new 486SX 25Mhz replaced it. A great computer for the time (1992), as far as you stay away from floating point computation (no FPU).

When I, for a stupid mistake, connected the serial port with the 220 Volt home electric network (don’ t ask…) it became time for another change: AMD K5 100Mhz.
This is the computer that let me finish the univerity studies and to start my job time.
Job time (sic!) means almost the end of any free time, so there is no need to have an up to date computer at home: the business laptop is enought.

keeper

Ok, this boring hardware list is finished, so what else I like to do when my eyes are not looking at a TFT or a CRT?

Everytime I can, I like to play soccer, five-a-side mostly. I usually play as keeper. Not because I’m good in that rule: the reason is that is better, for the guys of my team, that I don’t play in other rules 🙂
Yes, I know almost every keeper started for this reason.

bike

Another sport I like is to ride my bicicle, possibly inside the nature. It is almost a necessity, when you live in a big and chaotic city.
During my last holidays I did some tour of about a week in bicicle, together with some friend. We went in Tuscany in 2002, and Corsica in 2003.

Soon I’ll put some photos and a dersciption of both tours in this site pages. Stay tuned 😉
