Phew, sysadmin-ing these days (for n00bs like me)
I am not a professional sysadmin, nor a sysadmin wannabe or an amateur sysadmin. I am just a guy that uses Linux as a workstation, to develop. I don't even do web development for a living (I used to), but still I do develop simple websites for people dear t...

Learning Go
My prototypes are usually written in Python 3, and later, if I need performances, I re-write them in C++. Currently, I have a machine running some long-running computations, and the code is written in Python. Sadly, they are taking way too much time - even ...

Google Inbox - M2C
So, it's a week or more that I use Google's newest creation: Inbox. Inbox is definitely meant to replace Gmail (as google is trying hard to make me switch from Gmail to Inbox, with popups, notifications, settings). Long story short: I don't like Inbox. It h...

I'm sure there's plenty of material on decorators, but when I look on google, there are still few resources that pop up in the first positions, and I believe they are over-complicated (beside the PEP-318 which is clear, but also full of things that you may ...

rvalue reference in C++11
I am not gonna explain what rvalue reference are and how do they work. I just want to say that I uploaded on codedude an example to understand what's happening with temporary objects and why rvalue references are neat. See it here: https://github.com/akiros...

llfuse step-by-step tutorial
This afternoon I started to play, for the first time, with FUSE. So, to learn a little how to use the low level API, I wrote a simple and stupid filesystem and a little tutorial, that is basically what I observed during the process. It's published here (sor...

Mozilla Prism: Live Again!
It's something pretty trivial, but I'll let you figure it out by doing it and pointing to few related references . I'll do the Example with Gnome 3, Trello and Firefox, because I use Gnome 3, Trello and Firefox. firefox --ProfileManager and create a new "Tr...

Turtle in Python 3
This post is ridiculously trivial. You've been warned :D Basically, I was spending some little time on SO and I found a question by a young guy asking how to draw the yin-yang using Python3 turtle module. Sometimes I forget about Python's very cool features...

Anti-phishing strategy
It just came to my mind a strategy to fight phishing. Phishing works pretty well, in terms of data gathered, because when a user is not expert and falls in the trap, he actually believes he have to provide the correct data, so he provide the correct data. O...

Story
Tagline
I'm not weird, I'm limited edition.
Introduction
"Unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person; especially: one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits." - a nerd, by Merriam-Webster.

I'm interested in many things and curious about everything. I'd like to work on a gazillion projects, but since life is limited in time, I'm dedicating on the most interesting and addictive thing of my life: programming.

I'm interested into
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Programming
  • GNU/Linux and FLOSS
  • Sciences

    • Computer Science
    • Physics

    • Math (any kind)
    • Nanotech
  • 3D (programming, tools, pictures)
  • Technology
  • Philosophy
  • Politics
  • Photography
Bragging rights
I'll add only people who can use circles properly. Sorry, but I don't need the Nth feed reader OR an incomplete version of FB. Please help to keep G+ well organized, for the justice of the universe!
