FAQs about me, collected from g+ and forums users who keep doing such stupid questions…

All answers could be summarized as "none of your business", but since some doesn't accept tl;dr…

Q: Why don't you use your face as profile photo?
A: Why should I? it's not like I have an interesting face, you know? If you really want to see my mug, there are three 2011 photos on g+ and a 2007 one around the net (I don't like being photographed)

Q: I'm in your circles but... Nothing "juicy" on limited posts?
A: Nope. And even if I've circled you, I have several "access rings" circles, so that I could choose who the post is visible.
Moreover, I discuss really private matters in real life, by phone or by DCC chat. In short, 1-1 channels.

Q: Why that nickname? (it's ozone89 or variants)
A: I liked how it sounded, and having had breathing issues at the time, it seemed ironical too.

Q: What's that silly avatar?
A: It's Colonel.EXE's NaviMark (read: symbol), a swordsman program from MegaMan Battle Network (wiki or Google images for more infos).
Update 13/12/2014: Current avatar is the Guild Of Maintainers crest from Uru
Update 04/02/2016: Current avatar is the Seleçao one from Higashi no Eden
Update 28/08/2016: a funnel with aviator sunglasses, deal with it!

Q: Why do I see bogus character when you write something?
A: Oh, Lord... If is just one in the middle of a word, it's an accented vowel (è à ì and so on. Italian language has these. Be thankful I'm not Nordic); if it's a sequence it's probably CJK (read: Japanese). In both cases, I'm using UTF-8, while either your PC or your site (if I'm leaving a comment) is using 8859-1 or similar. Wake the FSCK up and change your charset, for $deity's sake! It's 2013, not the 90s!

Q: Uh? What was that $ word?
A: It's a bash-like variable. Consider it a way to train your guessing skills (or, in that case, a way to make any religion happy).

Q: I'm a recruiter, may I peep your profile on order to get what kind of person you are?
A: Less browsing, more CVs! Go back to work, you lazyass! And even if you do, good luck, I have different "attitude profiles" for everybody, how I behave in my private life is completely different from when I'm on the clock.

Update 27/06/2015
Q: What do you think about $buzzy_topic?
A: If you're not harming somebody (including yourself), IDGAF. Examples:
- Gay marriage: IDGAF. Disowning your gay $relative because you're a bigot: you're an asshole and should be jailed, or at least lose your children to the social services.
- Religion: IDGAF, as long you don't push it on the others to unbearable levels (this includes atheists as well). If you're one of those who uses atheism as an excuse to insult others' personal beliefs, or use religion to limit others' freedom|rights, you're an asshole.
- Lifestyle: IDGAF, with some exceptions. If you're vegan (humans are not intended to be vegan, give it up already), or a smoker, or something that may harm you physically, I'd stop if I were in your shoes, but it's just a friendly advice, as it's your life and body after all. If you push it to others, FSCK you. If you force your children and/or dog|cat|$carnivore_animal to be vegan, you should be jailed for torture.

Oh! I fell much better now!
Nothing like a rant at 5:25am to relieve some stress!
Stupid idea: since land phone is going full VoIP, why not associate the line itself to the router, and let the users use it wherever they are seamlessly?

(Of course, within reasonable boundaries)

Based on this news. It's a coincidence Samsung is korean like D-va? I think not! Somehow I think the korean army is very wasteful with the way their soldier keep exploding their mekas every battle. Though "realistically" I believe their soldiers would be using it as a very last resort and not as a standar tactic to create a brief opening.

Recipe for an heart attack:

- your company's work shirt (white, of course)
- a washing machine, set on the shirt (1h35') program
- a couple of black items of clothing stuck in the ceiling of the drum by your flatmate the previous round

22:45 landing
23:00 I enter the CrewRoom
23:30 I enter the car
23:45 I arrive at the roundabout at the entrance to Bergamo.

Thats where terror begins.

I'm in the outer lane, speed is 40km/h, light and thin rain (the kind of rain where you cannot drive without wipers, but not enough to use intermittence without having the blades gripping on the windshield).

Suddenly, the car veers to the left, the steering wheel refuses to respond.

I downshift gears (or put neutral straight away, don't remember), release the throttle and let the steering wheel work its way back to normality.

The car does a 540° and stops the wrong way, only 2cm from the curb of the internal lane.

Should've it happened in the afternoon, with traffic and all, I don't think I would've be there to tell you the story, I'm still in tachycardia.

Please, please, be careful when driving in the rain!

No way that at 40km/h you could do a 540°, even with heavy rain (which wasn't the case you described). As soon as you start spinning, the car slows you down and it exponentially gains grip from the tire shoulders. You must have reaaally worn out tires and even in that case it's very very unlikely to do such stunt.

Btw, I feel sorry for your situation there, glad you make it without crashing and with little to no damage.
